: : Is there an official ladonian view of the world, or if
: : not, what to you all think?
: Some of the most complex thing I know is tube-constructs on the decks of oil-supply ships (or tankers).
: If you´ve ever seen one you cannot have failed to think "What a mess".
: Is the ladonian wiev more like "complex order", or "complex chaos"?
: Maybe the shape of the world is so ingenious simple that we find it hard to belive? (Like the shape of a pizza, a doggy poo or geometrical shapes?)
A saw a research result concering the shape of the universe. If you look closely it is hard to find a simple form or even a reoccuring pattern, but in
largescale view, these scientists had found that the universe had the form of a foam. A rather simple and common shape in our daily microcosmos, but impossible
to guess without having seen whole universe.
But on the other hand, you will never know for sure that you have seen it all. Just as you can't tell the difference between chaos and complexity. It could very well
be a very complex structure, a structure that we can't find.
