I suppose it doesn't make any value claims, although perhaps we have the
opportunity to help encourage the good or the bad, as we make choices.
When I did read on this stuff about 20 years ago, I was impressed that it
quickly seemed to get to the philosophical or at least the
cosmological--sort of the feeling I get when I read some of At's material.
I'll let you explore that literature, if you're interested.

While I suspect we're at least straying from the original, try
http://www.uncwil.edu/people/hermanr/chaos/joe/ and even, if you wish,
http://www.qkits.com/serv/qkits/velleman/pages/k4301.asp . I haven't done
any verification to ensure the claims on these sites are accurate. You
can probably find other such sites; I did, but they didn't work for me.

One thought came to me. We're about LO's and learning, and part of that
classically is seeing and reacting to patterns and the structures that
cause those patterns, not (or not solely) the events which go together to
make up the patterns. Does that imply anything about how we think about
recent events (and the fact we didn't seem to discuss them very much until
a cataclysm occurred--or did we?)?
