Chaos and Complexity

We dance 'round and suppose,
The secret sits in the middle and knows.
Robert Frost

Our own evolution is a joy and a wonder because such a curious chain of events would probably never happen again, but having occurred, makes eminent sense.
Stephen Jay Gould

There is joy in the dance, but it does not exist for the sake of joy.... It does not exist for us, but we for it.
C. S. Lewis
