EXPLOSIONS occur when concentrated energy, rage, resentment, anger, desires, and their like are suddenly released. CATASTROPHIC changes occur when physical or human systems approach boundaries between stable and unstable configurations in a phase-space of alternative possibilities which range smoothly between highly stable and highly unstable configurations. CHAOTIC processes occur when processes are cyclic in ways which are similar but not identical---with the possibilities of small differences in conditions through one cycle leading eventually to great differences in eventual outcomes. In conflicts between opposing paradigms and peoples they work in terms of primarily two alternative possibilities: one side dominates, or the other side dominates. They act in ways which concentrate energy, rage, resentment, anger, desires and their like on opposing sides on alternate halves of the cyclic processes. The cycles are never different because during each cycle the past history and memories are slightly different. Small changes in one cycle can lead to large differences in cycles far in the future. In conflicts between opposing paradigms and people the conditions of concentration of energy lead to explosions in cyclic ways which are naturally chaotic and hard to understand because: 1. The participants in the chaotic, cyclic, catastrophic processes are confused by them and too close to them to see them clearly in unbiased ways. They are confusing each other in reflexive ways so that objectivity about the processes is impossible. 2. The bystanders who are not embroiled in the chaotic, cyclic and catastrophic processes are not well informed about the participants or the processes because the essence of the processes includes reflexive aspects which vanish from view when they are approached in exclusively objective ways. Unless participants and bystanders who are involved in conflicts transcend the above limitations upon their creativity---they cannot enjoy either personal or communal integrity. It is essential that they seek both personal and communal integrity through cooperative efforts which are informed by open and honest dialogue about their experiences, perceptions, attitudes, thoughts, feelings, emotions, desires, etc. Such is exceedingly unlikely to occur---so long as manipulative attitudes prevail, and dishonesty/deception are regarded as worthy of respect as tools to be used in seeking to achieve desired outcomes in controlled ways.
