Intensive To initial conditions - The butterfly Effect

Gilles Deleuze in one of his reports from the Chaosmos (Difference and Repetition) concludes that:

“It is therefore true that God makes the world by calculating, but his calculations never work out exactly, and this inexactitude or injustice in the result, this irreducible inequality, forms the condition of the world. The world “happens” while God calculates; if the calculation were exact, there would be no world”

It is because there is no finite Initial Conditions for any calculation, that any event could be potentially or virtually relevant: i.e. chaos theory’s “flap of the wings” of a butterfly “causing” a hurricane on the other side of the world.

In addition, no phenomenon is complete, chaotic or ordered but asymmetric to the core:

“Every phenomenon refers to an inequality by which it is conditioned” – the very source from which any authentic flow of Vitalism or Spirit can be made to emerge…

Out of our cocoons into the sunlight…
