Deterministic chaos is a physics concept that says the flutter of a butterfly wing can change the course of a hurricane by hundreds of miles. Like the weather, especially in maritime (seagoing vehicle) and high altitude (airplane flying) situations, life is wholly unpredictable. In this age in particular, asteroid showers, el-nino currents, and other increasingly frequent freak happenings like tornadoes, earthquakes, flash floods, hurricanes, storms and tidal waves, underscore the fact that we live in unpredictable and dangerous times. And sudden human upheavals including terrorism, political violence, warfare, terrorism and tribal hostilities, make this world a perilous place to be.
