Future states of such systems cannot be predicted in advance, as a slight change in the initial conditions would deviate the system through a wide margin from the original. Bringing Order to Chaos and Complexity. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Gribbin describes how the iterative approximation techniques used in finding solutions to can never be exactly accurate.

If you’re an astronomer who happens to observe a planet like the Earth and notice that it has an oxygen-rich atmosphere, that either means you are witnessing a rare, transient event on that planet, or that the atmosphere is being maintained in a state far from equilibrium.
