"In nature, there are no linear systems outside the mineral world." #readingTodayThe best example of a nonlinear system is the weather. We can estimate how likely it is that the weather will be in a certain state in the future, and the current state of the system is a function of past states (i.e., it has a memory), but we still cannot predict its future trajectory with certainty. Fortunately for us, and unfortunately for scientists, brains are nonlinear. In nature, there are no linear systems outside the mineral world.
