Chaos: predicting the unpredictable ―Firth WJ. The BMJ

“Yet prediction is not trivial or easy. In fact chaos, the mainspring of this article, has shown us that predictability is the exception rather. than the rule, even for what seem like simple physical systems. A human being is immeasurably more complex than any demonstrably chaotic system-the question can be turned around: How can anything be predicted about a person?”
