>>12609116>Dystopias are simple negative-ideals, the world is far too chaotic and complex
Chaos and complexity don't exist, especially not in bioogical systems and natural economy (of which artificial economy, culture, society, and the affordances to the individual all stem). Any time anyone gets these notions about how the world works, I would advise simply looking at your own body. The so-called "chemical soup" according to chaos-brains, which is demonstrably not a soup at all. Consider this, despite all that "chaos" in the body, from some point in fetal development up until your death, in the interbeat interval you can predict with near certainty that your heart will beat again. It simply will, you know it will, and no matter what is going on at all the other levels of organization... it just does. If this rock of order and stability can exist within a sea of so-called chaos, is the rest of it so chaotic at all? No, it's highly organized and relatively narrow in its response range and how it damps or amplifies its neighbors. You can take a body and poke its little toe and reliably register a response in the brain. It doesn't matter whether you blow tons of air on the body, put it in hot water, cold water, starve it, feed it, any number of the vast range of environmental conditions and demands to which the system is subject. The brain still responds when the toe is poked, the heart still beats, the lung still breathes, the eye still transduces light. I could go on, but it is not necessary.
It is the same at all the other levels of organization, from individual, to group, to region, to macro region. Units alter and modualte the behavior of their neighbors, and themselves are subject to natural. There is no chaos. The thing with biology is it tends to collectively stabilize around certain organizing principles. In this case it is money which puts the food on the shelves, in others it could something else. There is not so much possibility as you think.
