What Chaos Theory And Determinism Have To Do With Infinite And The Scale Of A Universe?

I don’t pretend to know much about Chaos Theory, and what I’ve learned more of it is from the documentary “The Secret Life of Chaos” (2017) directed by Nic Stacey.  From this documentary I learned of the people like Alan Turing whose lifeworks had big impact on how we perceive of Chaos Theory today.  Before I even knew about Chaos Theory and the definition of deterministic system of a philosophical doctrine, I have had thoughts of my own in regarding to things that can be counted within both observable and unobservable universes.  By reading a bit into Chaos Theory and the definition of deterministic system, I’ve come to a realization that Chaos Theory and deterministic system together as a unit which resembles a perfect marriage.

When you think of Chaos Theory, you think of simple elements that can be counted yet these elements have the potential of creating unpredictable combination in nature and elsewhere.  For an example, if you take a look at a huge tree with many branches, the whole tree does look like a complex pattern, but if you take a closer look at the tree the elements can be break down into very simple similar patterns.  Nonetheless, the branches on the tree are unpredictably formed in countless simple patterns that together they make the tree to be a more complex feature.  The predictability in the picture of a tree which forms by unpredictable patterns of branches is the tree and branches themselves.  This is the side of deterministic system.

Without a brain like a human being, yet the branches on the tree know how to self-organized into similar branches with different patterns to form a predictable outcome as a tree.  Chaos Theory suggests that most things in nature can be simple and unpredictable yet self-organized to form predictable features, thus nature isn’t like a clockwork machine in which the gears would always be turned in the same directions.  Hint this is why I realized Chaos Theory and deterministic system together as a perfect marriage.  For your information, people are using Chaos Theory to study human’s heart, animal skins’ patterns, weathers, and whatnot.

My own thoughts now come into the mix in regarding to all of this.  I have always thought of both observable and unobservable universes can be broken down into elements that can be counted and summed it all up.  What do I mean by this?  If we can think of 1 + 1 equal 2, then we can think of every element in the universe can be thrown onto a scale for weighing and summation.  Nonetheless, I also do think these elements in each of themselves have behaviors and features that create potential for probable outcomes.  Thus I think we can count up all elements within the universe if we can be sure of all the potentials and probabilities there are within a universe.  We must also remember that each element can combine with another and many others to form new elements, thus the potentials and probabilities like these must be accounted for within the equation too.

I may have misunderstood in one aspect of Chaos Theory is that I think Chaos Theory suggests that the unpredictability side of things cannot be accounted for in any math, but the potentials and probabilities are there for the unpredictability to become predictability once the whole picture is formed.  For me, I think it’s absurd that the potentials and the probabilities within the universe are endless and infinite.  I think if the universe is truly endless and infinite, then why not earth in the first place be just it and the sun, stars, and everything else shouldn’t be existed in the first place.  I think we can agree on that if we have a powerful enough machine we could sum up all elements within planet earth to eventually have them weigh on a single scale to come up with an exact number of how much earth is made of right?  I think the universe is in this manner too.

If what I’ve been stated thus far are all true, should infinite be a number which we can weigh?

Thus, I think the potentials and probabilities of what exist cannot be endless and limitless, and here is where I determine that if we have a powerful enough machine we can too put a universe on a scale for weighing.  Furthermore, since the potentials and probabilities are not infinite, so there must be other universes out there.  Since the potentials and probabilities are capable to form within our imagination — I think Chaos Theory should agree with me that human conscious is the byproduct of the potentials and the probabilities of the system we’re in — I think our imagination of limited universe is too within the potentials and probabilities of the system.  Otherwise, our imagination wouldn’t allow us to imagine the universe is limited.  Here is what I think next, there shouldn’t be a law that limits the shape and size of a universe unless the potentials and probabilities of such are not existed.  Who say earth is round and the universe cannot be square?  Perhaps, another universe is square and ours is in a very weird shape which we have no word to describe such a shape.

Just A Thought: Would China Create Technology To Destroy All Satellites To Force Everyone Fights Without Eyes In The Heaven?

I was reading an article which mentioned how China may use technology in space to ram United States’ satellites to prevent spying and GPS and whatnot activities in wartime, and I thought to myself that China could also create satellites that may act like a last resort measure in which it would project indiscriminately projectiles to all satellites in an orbit, including the ones that China operates.  Why I think China can also go this route?  Well, let me see, in wartime China got the number on her side, because she got 1.3 billion people to draft from for a world war.  If China can sacrifice her satellites to destroy all satellites of her enemies, then why not right?  After all, when all satellites become inoperable, China can use traditional warfare tactics that do not rely on satellites to win war — she got the number on her side.  Of course, this is only my imagination, because I don’t know if China has ever created something like this yet.  Of course, the United States can do the same, but this means such technology would force the United States to fight blind.  I think the United States prefers to have her satellites operating during wartime.

China Launches New Crewed Space Mission Shenzhou-11

China is continuing to expand her space program, and so it’s not a surprise to see China just launches a new crewed space mission from Shenzhou.  This mission is known as Shenzhou-11.  It seems that this time the two astronauts of this new space mission will try to stay in space longer than any other Chinese astronaut had done before.  Basically, this is another step for China to do trial and error test experimentation in her ambition to have a more complete, permanent space station in 2020.

Can Offshore Balancing Be More Realistic For The United States’ Foreign Relations?

Although the United States’ old grand strategy was almost forgotten since the fallen of the Soviet Union, but after so many unfinished businesses around the world such as in Afghanistan and elsewhere the United States may have to revisit an old grand strategy which is known as offshore balancing.  According to Stephen Walt in the video right after the break, he suggests that the United States would be better off in foreign relations in applying offshore balancing for foreign relation building.  Offshore balancing may save the United States from overspending in foreign policy matters, but offshore balancing isn’t discouraging in building healthy relations with foreign powers.  Perhaps, if offshore balancing is done right, the United States may have even more friends than enemies while building a stronger nation at home.  Anyhow, I guess no known strategy is invulnerable to everything, and so offshore balancing may not always be best for certain situations.  In my opinion, Stephen Walt does sound very convincing in his argument that the offshore balancing may help the United States navigates the evermore dangerous globe in a more efficient and healthier manner.

Just A Suggestion On What We Should Aim For When Traveling To Another Galaxy

I’m no geek in space stuffs, but I like to watch Star Trek TV shows and movies sometimes.  Anyhow, whenever I see Star Trek’s spaceship such as the Enterprise, I dream that I could be on one.  In my opinion, space faring is very cool.

In reality, we can’t travel anywhere far away from our planet earth yet.  Sure, we can send robotic crafts to a distant planet, but such a planet would still be within our solar system.  Perhaps, making as far as the edge of our solar system is already a great achievement in our time.

Talking about space faring to a hospitable planet which resides in another galaxy is totally a fantasy still.  How come?  According to the Internet, the closest galaxy is like 25,000 light-years away.  Our human civilization might already be extinct by then if we’re not careful.

Traveling to another galaxy requires technology which we can only fantasize at the moment.  Warping in space is one of such technologies.  Another one is using a wormhole to take a shortcut in space.  These technologies require immense energy, and our current technologies are in no way near in having such advancements.

Nonetheless, if one day we can harness immense energy and know how to utilize such energy, I like to suggest that we should not build a spaceship like the Enterprise.  How come?  Such a spaceship is too small and not sustainable for generations of space faring creatures.

I think we should create a spaceship that is immense in size and has similar shape to earth.  Such a craft should be at least 1/3 of the earth size, because such a huge craft can sustain artificial ecosystems that are similar to earth.  This way, generations of space faring creatures can survive and thrive for a long time — making our way to another galaxy should be doable by then.

Such a craft may need a technology to harness the stars, and making such stars as if they’re the gas stations in space.  Warp and wormhole technologies are the must have technologies, because these technologies could aid in speeding up the journey to another galaxy.  Anyhow, as the human race advances, we may be able to see the children of much later generations to take on such a bold adventure — traveling to another galaxy.

Perhaps, The Real Universes Are Also No Man’s Sky

This June, No Man’s Sky will be released on the 21st of the month.  This is one of those games that I can’t wait to get my game on.  The game is about an almost infinite galaxies and planets that you can travel to and explore.  From what I’d heard the travel between planets and galaxies is seamless.  An open world where wonders and monsters await, and each trip can be randomly dangerous.  If not prepare ahead, your next trip in No Man’s Sky may be a trip to hell.

Enough about the game, because I want to focus on something else entirely in this blog post.  I mentioned No Man’s Sky, because the game is special and unique since it would almost indefinitely generate new instances of parts of the universe that you travel through in your spaceship.  This means game assets and whatnot are going to be randomly created all the time through an algorithm.  This makes me wonder perhaps our real universe is also infinite.

When we escaped the planet earth, we suddenly realized the surmise of round earth is true.  We see galaxies, but we can’t get there.  We can’t really see the edge of the universe, because a simplest, smallest distance between earth and another planet is already too huge.  Just imagine an ant craws across a hill, and this ant must have thought that the hill is a galaxy.  How would the ant know that there is a universe in which humans are aim to travel across, right?

Imagine the real universe is also being instantly generated indefinitely, thus us humans would probably never be able to see the real edge of the universe.  Because, the edge of the universe would also be expanded farther and farther with no end in sight.  What if there are multiple universes that would never allow one realm to travel to another, but these realms are so different and have infinite generated instances?  Imagine the laws of physics would be so different from one realm to another.

I think as human civilization gets bolder with space, one day we may do No Man’s Sky for real.  Right now I can’t wait to play No Man’s Sky on PC, but our human civilization can’t wait to escape this space region.  I think nuclear power and the likes are progress, but only if us humans can be civilized.  Such technologies can catapult us humans out of this space region and go interstellar.  Nonetheless, we may go extinct if we can’t be civilized among ourselves.
