ahora me parece mas claro, el fantasma en la maquina, es el mismo que el mundo de las ideas de descartes, el que existe independiente del mundo físico, este mismo es el de las matemáticas y la lógica, las operaciones y algoritmos, son el principio fundamental que pueden ser ejecutadas por cualquier  maquina, ser orgánico, ente físico. En fin de cuentas,es poseído por el fantasma, el proceso en esencia.

Chaos and the Double Pendulum
A chaotic system is one in which infinitesimal differences in the starting conditions lead to drastically different results as the system evolves.
Summarized by mathematician Edward Lorentz, ”Chaos [is] when the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.”
There’s an important distinction to make between a chaotic system and a random system. Given the starting conditions, a chaotic system is entirely deterministic. A random system, on the other hand, is entirely non-deterministic, even when the starting conditions are known. That is, with enough information, the evolution of a “chaotic” system is entirely predictable, but in a random system there’s no amount of information that would be enough to predict the system’s evolution.
The simulations above show two slightly different initial conditions for a double pendulum — an example of a chaotic system. In the left animation both pendulums begin horizontally, and in the right animation the red pendulum begins horizontally and the blue is rotated by 0.1 radians (≈ 5.73°) above the positive x-axis. In both simulations, all of the pendulums begin from rest.

So the UNCW math club just e-mailed me this picture and Im really considering going just for the sake of this pun…
