In the video: About 42 quadraple pendulums, each with a slightly different initial velocity (10^-5ish difference). Notice how they all start out overlapping each other and with time... BoOm, Chaos! .
In 1960, the Royal McBee a "Weather Toy" by Lorenz ran on purely determinism of physical laws. 12 numerical laws picked after trial and error to make a model of the weather.
He followed the axiom "Understand the laws of motion, which provide a bridge to mathematical certainty and you have understood the universe"
What followed was a truth that rocked the philosophical core of all those who marched under the Newton's banner.
What he came across can best be described by a poem: .
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost;
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost;
For want of a horse, the rider was lost;
For want of a rider, the battle was lost;
For want of a battle, the kingdom was lost!" .
Aka the butterfly effect.
A modern reference of this I find really pleasing to listen to is a song by Regina Spektor, "The call"
It goes something like- .
"It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word
And then that word grew louder and louder
'Til it was a battle cry"
Anyhow, owing to the nature of Instagram, I'll conclude my caption here, but will be writing further on this exquisite truth on my blog!
The truth which produced the rich multiplicity of each moment.

Perhaps more than any other Chapter, the character of a Space Wolves Battle-Brother is defined by his age. Perhaps the changes wrought within him by the Canis Helix grant him something of the essence of the Primarch, a potent nature the Battle-Brother must struggle to control. Leman Russ was known as a being of wild humours and often contradictory drives. One moment he was jovial, the next sullen. At the conclusion of one battle he might have ordered clemency and mercy, and at another brooked no quarter. To the Space Wolves, there is no contradiction, for the very world that birthed them is subject to such extremes. One season the land of ice and fire is cold and snow swept, the next the skies blacken with ash and lava ﬂows dissect the plains. Thus, the nature and character of a Space Wolf depends very much upon his stage in life. The youngest are headstrong and cocksure, seemingly determined to get themselves killed charging headlong into battle. The Grey Hunters are more mature, knowing the constraints of their abilities but confdent of their skills. The Long Fangs are the oldest and the wisest, affably disapproving of the antics of the youngsters but ever ready with words of advice. The most skilled in battle and leadership serve as Wolf Guard, the guardians of the Chapter's mightiest heroes. Whatever his station, a Space Wolf knows that he travels a glorious path, and that thousands of great warriors have trod it before him.

Banner of Macragge - The Banner of Macragge is the ancient Battle Standard of the Ultramarines Chapter and it is considered to be one of their most revered Chapter relics. It was touched by the Emperor's own hand at the beginning of the Great Crusade, and nearly four decades later, when He presented it to the newly reunited Primarch, Roboute Guilliman, after he was given command of the XIII Legion in 834.M30. The Ultramarines have preserved it for ten millennia through fire and war and decimation, each generation passing it on to the next as a burning torch of their love for the immortal Emperor who made them. It has languished in dull stasis chambers and flown beneath the suns of a thousand alien worlds. It has flown on Macragge itself, whenever the whole Chapter is gathered together, and it has been carried forth whenever the Ultramarines have fought as one against the direst of foes. It is said to be made of a strange material known only to the ancients; light as silk but strong as steel; flame cannot burn it and where it is rent asunder it re-spins itself as perfect as the day it was first made. It is marked with the names of all seventy Chapter Masters, beginning with Roboute Guilliman and ending with young Marneus Calgar. The Banner carries an honorific for each Victorix Maxima (High Gothic for "great victory") of the Chapter which has been declared at the Imperial Palace on sacred Terra
The Grey Knights have endured for millennia, their Chapter built upon a web of ancient traditions and oaths. These sacred customs and doctrines are reflected in the weapons they use, the armour they wear and the heraldry they bear, each one a part of their proud history. Grey Knights heraldry is most often depicted upon the portion of their grey Aegis Armour known as the heraldric shield.
Red, white and black are the common colours of almost all Grey Knights heraldry, these being colours used by the first Grand Masters when they forsook their Legions and embraced the sacred duty the Emperor had given them. Each icon and colour has its own meaning within the Chapter; skulls indicate the quelling of powerful daemonic foes and swords battlefield honours, for example as shown above. Crenellated lines, divisions of colour and which colour is ascendant all represent a Battle-Brother's position within his Brotherhood, the colour, direction and gradient of the line or division each having their own meaning.
Grey Knights will sometimes incorporate symbology of their allies into their heraldry if they are especially deserving. In this case the dominate skull above bears the icon of the Inquisition, showing a great victory won over a potent daemonic foe but with the aid of one of the Holy Ordos. However, it is rare for these symbols to be adopted as there are few allies worthy enough to earn the respect of the Grey Knights. Sometimes a Battle-Brother will take the icon of an ally which has been exterminated or mind-wiped in the aftermath of battle. Thus the only reminder of their existence remains upon the Battle-Brother's heraldic shield, a forlorn reminder of their service to the Grey Knights while they lived.
The icon of a sword is a powerful symbol within Grey Knights heraldry. This can represent an act that preserved the Battle-Brother's squad, turned the tide of an important confrontation or brought about the destruction of a most hated foe. A white sword on red as above is a symbol of the Emperor's mercy, an act considered inspired by the Master of Mankind's benevolence. A black sword on red is a measure of the Emperor's wrath and is granted for acts of vengeance
Invisible Cities // Already the Great Khan was leafing through his atlas, over the maps of the cities that menace in nightmares and malediction: Enoch, Babylon, Yahooland, Butua, Brave New World.
He said: "It is all useless, if the last landing place can only be the infernal city, and it is there that, in ever-narrowing circles, the current is drawing us." And Polo said: "The inferno of the loving is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form be being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of the inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space." // - Italo Calvino | Invisible Cities
