CHAOS NAVIGATION THEORY by Thomas Heide predicts that it is possible to navigate in chaotic systems if we understand ourselves as shifting mix-positions of unpredictable change and predictable standstill on a scale defined in its extremes by change and standstill and use these positions as our objective pointers for communication and construction rather than the illusionary pointers of the unpredictable locality embedded in global chains of cause and effect.

Important note: The work of Thomas Heide has retrospectively (2022) been conceptualized as a new field of knowledge and object of applied research in the form of “chaos navigation theory”.

This blog is a work in progress by Kaospilot co-founder Thomas Heide, philosopher (BA) and educational philosopher (MA). The purpose of the blog is to provide directly applicable blueprints for learning and schools matching the cognitive challenges of the 21st century. It includes texts, objects and songs and multiple ad hoc summaries created from 1990 till today. The topic is complex: How do we create objective navigational pointers independent of contextual change? The methods of analysis and the results of the analysis reflect this complexity. It is all free. Please enjoy and do not hesitate to apply, experiment and personalize the proposals forwarded. The ideas are meant to help you deal proactively with the strange effects produced in global overflow.

Regarding gender bias: In the texts on this website Thomas Heide frequently refers in general terms to humanity as a unity without noting, that male gender as a social construct is the primary default in this reference and the projection and objectification of consciousness into mathematics, algorithms and machines as such, so far at least, has primarily been driven by men. Readers and/or facilitators of the work should include this, as well as other hidden or explicit biases, as a topic of relevance in the analysis and practical application of the theories.

Disclaimer: No external editor or peer-reviewer had access to the material and its postulates have not been tested according to governing scientific standards. As such, the work should in this stage of its development be considered ideas awaiting verification, including paragraphs and graphics where the philosopher uses subjective interpretations of the natural sciences to lend credibility to or to stand in clarifying opposition to the work.
