Our Friend Murphy

Our Friend Murphy


          A closed ideological bubble is based on contradictions and lies, but it can defend itself against the truth, provided that it can predict which lie to remember when. Therefore ideology’s notorious immunity to reason; for reason is predictable.

          Therefore the truths that pop a bubble are the unpredictable truths; the revelations from chaos. They could be big, like Hurricane Katrina, or little, like a video-phone hidden behind some crystalware at a fundraiser. Size doesn’t matter to chaos; it’s scale-invariant, and sensitively dependent on initial conditions.

          Ideology is about control, but the real world is out of control. Always has been, always will be. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong; that’s Murphy’s Law, and in the fight against mental tyranny, Murphy’s Law is your friend.
