Chaos Psychology

  • Jeremy England, Assistant Professor at MIT, proposed that when an external energy source is applied, local structures will form that facilitate global entropy increase. They do so, because they can dissipate the externally applied energy much easier than a lump of disorganized atoms. Plants, for example, can absorb sunlight and dissipate the energy more effectively. Making copies of yourself may be attributed to the same principle.

  • Instead of complaining that people don’t have the proper takeaways form chaos science, why not create my own little series on fractal and chaotic phenomena. Often, the descriptions that are available online are very mathematical, and it is not immediately obvious why the information should be relevant to you. That is particularly true, if you have no clue about the subject yet. I’ll try to go with a minimum of mathematics in the beginning, and try to explain it step by step.

  • Popper’s approach to truth implies that one cannot state truth. Instead, theories have to be falsified. As a popular assumption, doing so frees one from making false assumptions about truth. But there’s a hidden fallacy in this approach that is not very obvious, and can have devastating consequences if it becomes unconscious and forgotten.

    A mindset … yes, but not only that.
    An attitude … a complete set, but not only that.
    A worldview … yes, but not only that …

  • The first theory to dismantle with the help of patterns of chaos science is E. Tory Higgins’ theory of self-discrepancy and regulatory fit. The theory is described in detail in Higgins (1987, 1997, 2000). The following figure shows a simplified, systematic overview over the theory. Both dynamics of Higgins’ preventive and preventive behaviour can be modelled as attractors or repulsors. They are extremes on a discrete-looped spectrum of phase transitions …
