Or if you're looking at the finances of Merrill Lynch, for example  :lulz:

Something occurs to me.  Couldn't we use one of those circular charts like they have in that one arcade game where you train to be a cop?

It'd look like this:

Is it just me, or is the idea of charting chaos :fap: ?

Only if you actually want to use it to record things.  I think of it as a tool to deepen understanding.

Well, I think we can make many models, which if they're useful for something then surely its not just  :fap:

But, the thing I'm trying to figure out is why we're trying to model chaos beyond the old 2x2 grid... that is what would the new model provide over the old one.

As far as I can tell, the only thing that the old one provided was a way of visualizing that not all chaos is necessarily bad. What are we aiming at with these other models?

More of the same.  I'm trying to get back into content producing mode, so expect a few misses.

Point taken, but I still think occaisionally regurgitating things in new formats can make them clearer.

I agree... I'm just trying to figure out where the clarity is needed... that is, I have had a few ideas about models, but I'm not sure if they're useful or not, because I don't know what we're trying to model more clearly...

or something like that.

It originally started when ECH was bicthing about how you have order, disorder, creation, and destruction, but no way to represent creative destruction.

I thought about it a bit, and threw the new chart together.
