Re: ERE songs

Renaissance Man by Midnight Oil https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljZW6V7GXiM Stumbled onto their CD at the thrift store of course, haha, what a find, this song immediately reminded me of ERE. Here's some pertinent lyrics, reminds me of the "Leaving the Dark Ages" chapter of the ERE book: A new world ...

Re: Order/Chaos Relativity and Complex Systems

:lol: , yeah, I've definitely learned my lesson. I am going to try and steer clear of those now. I guess the only physics I truly understand is rock/fluid mechanics (stress, strain, hydraulics, earthquakes, etc), and the basics from physics 101. Everything else is pretty confusing to me. I would lik...

Re: Order/Chaos Relativity and Complex Systems

Never mind about the questions, I am poring through a physics forum and realizing I am way off!

Re: Order/Chaos Relativity and Complex Systems

Hey Jacob, that's awesome! I am working on my master's thesis on the effect of mine excavations on groundwater levels... I use the theory of poroelasticity: the hydromechanical coupling between water and the rock. In the early history of groundwater science, most geologists completely ignored the fa...

Re: Order/Chaos Relativity and Complex Systems

Wow, thanks for answering all the questions, Jacob! I was getting confused by the notion of cause and effect, relativity, energy/matter and spacetime, but I am not a physicist, I just read the pop science books. Oh yeah, I guess I was trying to think about too many connections to things. I think I w...

Re: Order/Chaos Relativity and Complex Systems

Thanks for all the info guys. Jacob or Dragline, are you guys familiar with Kurt Godel's Incompleteness theorem? Didn't Godel prove in 1931 that mathematics can never be both complete and consistent? So maybe it is impossible to prove a connection between an ordered or chaotic system? The reason I b...

Order/Chaos Relativity and Complex Systems

Hey everybody, I'm new, I'm a geologist and I have some fascinating questions about complex systems to ask the ERE group. Do you guys remember in Jacob’s ERE book in section 5.1.2 where he states “You can never do just one thing!”? I am trying to figure out why that statement seems to be the case at...
