computer simulation of chaos theory

High Anxieties doco – the mathematics of Chaos (BBC 2008)

Documentary from the BBC just when the GFC was unfolding. It was obviously in the works beforehand and covers how the determinist idea of mathematics was fractured by chaos theory and the “butterfly effect”. The last segment with Lovelock (from Gaia theory fame) and how we are on a slope of climate change rather than a tipping point is more than a little scary.
