Interesting thread. Just a question:
What is information?
For anyone to imagine that things are "just chaos"....
Now, this is how chaos enters a human beings life. Since this emotion has not been integrated -....
In common usage, "chaos" means "a state of disorder". However, in chaos theory, the term is defined more precisely. Although there is no universally accepted mathematical definition of chaos, a commonly used definition says that, for a dynamical system to be classified as chaotic, it must have the following properties:
1 - it must be sensitive to initial conditions;
2 - it must be topologically mixing; and
3 - its periodic orbits must be dense.
Abstract Self-organizing and self-tuning neural networks are conceptualized as nonlinear dynamical systems. It is shown that biological psychiatry can be encompassed within this nonlinear dynamical framework, where it becomes coherent with trends in cognitive science. A state space representation that is a hyperspace with an energy topology and a fractal dimension is utilized. The state space representation provides a unifying framework for the classification of mental disorders. Clinical phenomena in schizophrenia can be explained in terms of nonlinear dynamics. The framework is also productive of psychiatric research. These results motivate the development of a nonlinear dynamical psychiatry. Psychiatry and the new dynamics
True chaos doesn't and can't inflict itself upon an orderly system, since true chaos is itself the lack of a system of any kind.
We can literally go through each mental disorder, from bipolar, to bpd, to generalized anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive, ptsd, and we can conceptualize these disorders as basic problems in internal integration.
But my entire being, and life, and body, and mind, and numbers themselves revolve around order, so how can the action of conscious beings be considered chaotic?

Is there a truly random event known to be random and not simply subject to a vast assortment of causes?
What is information?
Bi-polar is chaos; trauma is logical.
A person with unresolved trauma might be internally integrated one second, and the next second....
...a war vet is tensed and hyperaroused whenever he comes into relation with a reminder.
Information exists - both within physical systems and mental systems
noise is not deterministic and also not ordered.
Irrational numbers are chaotic within the probability of the base number.
