  1. I find it hard to see the 'chaos' part of it since in the game there are rules going toward a specific point a.b.c is working as a regulator but definitely an interesting video.

  2. Maybe all matter in space can be described with probability, and we can use that to simulate spacetime and us in it

  3. Thank you for this video. It seems, so I actually have a question, that fractals should be classified under a higher order, being or coming from randomness?

  4. I dunno, but, as soon as he said the words "this shape is an "attractor"…" 😳😳😳 Did the PYRAMIDS not pop into ANYONE ELSE'S HEAD!?!?!?! Cosmic alignments, deep chambers all gathering in one huge chamber type layouts, and the Hieroglyphics of strange beings and items they hold… like the giant ancient light bulb 🤷🤷🏽‍♂️🤷‍♀️
