There is what is called "chaos theory." In the past scientists thought the universe could be explained by various laws. The closer they looked, it began to seem more like chaos. Now, as they look even closer at "chaos" there appears to be a sort of order once again, and not only that, but purpose:
Surprise is a given. And, aren't we glad that God is in control.
All chaotic systems seem to have an unusual sensitivity to initial conditions. They are systems in which seemingly inconsequential changes turn into major differences in outcome. Scientists have found evidence of ‘chaos’ in astronomy, epidemiology, meteorology, air turbulence, the stock market, and the human body. It is in the study of the human body that some scientists are beginning to realize just how important chaos is. Ary Goldberger of Harvard Medical School believes he has discovered not only that the rhythm of the human heart is chaotic, but that chaos in the heart is necessary. When he compared the variations in the heartbeats of a healthy person to those of one suffering from heart disease, the healthy heartbeat was actually the more chaotic.
This has opened some scientists’ eyes to the possibility that chaotic behavior may not be an abnormality, but a characteristic essential to the design of some systems.
