One of the coolest intersections between science and mathematics is the idea of chaos theory.
Mathematics can be thought of as an abstract, extremely specific realm of hallucination.
A way that we can imagine things that don’t exist, like parallel lines, imaginary numbers and Euclidian geometry, yet apply those to the world.
Imagination and Reality
As applied to science, the stuff we can see, this collection of hallucinations can help us build things and predict things.
Chaos theory, however, says that even though we know the precise laws of nature, we cannot use them to predict very far into the future.
This means that things are possible to define, and describe with mathematical precision, but at the same time, impossible to predict.
I have a friend who used to be a serious cyclist.
He would go on these long road races.
He was also an engineer, and he explained to me once what happened when you get speed wobbles.
It’s a kind of multi-system resonance, where all the components start to shake, almost to the point of destroying the system.
Too Many To Count
There are plenty of variables involved, but ultimately it’s similar to how you can break a glass or a mirror with the right frequency.
It’s not matter of the strength of the sound, rather the frequency held at the right resonance frequency of the object.
With a bike, or a skateboard, it’s the same process.
The weight of the rider, plus the bike, plus the resonance frequency of the bike itself, plus the road, and the speed, can all add up to the whole structure shaking until something breaks.
If you’ve ever taken driver training, they tell you to steer into a skid.
This is easy to understand, in principle, but hard to do, especially in the middle of a crash.
There’s an interesting theory about volcanic resonance.
That theoretically, it would be possible for all the volcanoes on Earth to erupt in such a way to cause permanent damage to the integrity of the orbit.
The orbit of the Earth around the sun is unstable equilibrium.
Stable equilibrium is when you push something in either direction, and the system will self correct.
Kind of like a ball in the middle of a large valley.
Unstable equilibrium, on the other hand, is like a ball resting on top of a hill.
One push in any direction it will fall off.
They showed several solutions to an equation that demonstrated if the right volcanoes erupted at the right times, it would cause a large enough permutation in the Earth’s orbit that it would slowly decay.
Of course, this would mean that life on Earth is doomed.
But all life on Earth will eventually end anyway, this is just one of the many ways that could happen.
It’s only because our primitive human minds can only perceive of time within a very small reference frame.
Looking at time from different reference frames can be helpful.
Expanding reference frames can lead to growing understanding.
And if you grow understanding, you’ll have a lot more flexibility in how you think about things.
Of course, as you grow understanding you’ll necessarily increase the energy needs, since the more understanding you have, the more you’ll need to feed this with the necessary energy it needs.
And since finding energy inevitably creates losing time, since time is not a duplicating resource, you’ll need to balance this out somehow.
Of course, when she told me about this, I wondered how she could do this so easily.
She told me it was something she’d been practicing for a long time.
Which is why she has such a nice house, and only has to work a few hours per week.
Life Changing System
Once she figured out this system, making easy sales were almost automatic.
She told me she’s really glad she decided to buy this system.
You really only need to do this once, and this new response will be built into your neurology.
Steering into a crash will be automatic.
He said that most people immediately freak out, which almost always causes them to do the wrong thing.
Brakes Not Best Idea
If you are coasting down a hill, and you start to get speed wobbles, putting on the brakes might make it worse.
It might increase the destructive resonance, which will make your bike self destruct.
Not a good idea if you are coasting down hill at 30 miles per hour.
All life on Earth is governed by huge combinations of partial differential equations.
Enjoy The Ride
If you were to plug in any multi variable, partial differential equation into a computer, choosing a stable solution would be difficult.
Even worse is disturbing a stable system.
The best response is to simply relax and enjoy the ride.
Let the system take you where it wants to take you.
If you relax and let go, you’ll find magic here.
