At first, chaos theory was presumed to be one of the youngest of the sciences, not coming into vogue until the mid-1970s. However, as the field broadened to fit a rapidly expanding world, it soon became apparent that mankind has been studying chaos theory for its entire existence.
The Kuramitsu-Tylor Institute is devoted to harnessing the latent talent for chaotic impulses that exist in everyone, and harnessing those energies for the purposes of scientific, geopolitic, and hypersocial dynamics. Its goal is, in the most literal sense, to shape the future.
This page serves as an introduction to chaos studies for the layman. Several other books and pages exist for those who wish to study the mathematical theories corresponding with chaos, but we feel that it is in fact those who have the least amount of knowledge about the cause and effect of their actions that have the greatest impact on society.
Chiefly, it is this institute's realization that studying chaos theory closely can in fact prove detrimental to its continued value. Chaos theory has been defined as the study of complex nonlinear dynamic systems. The Kiramitsu-Tylor Institute understands that studying this will just make it more complex, so simply ignoring it and setting a destiny of your own is just as promising.
Infamous, perhaps. A few of our graduates decided to put their knowledge, or lack thereof, to the test, and have advanced far in their respective careers. Such advancement, however, has come at a price, as the administration tends to cast a jaundiced eye on them. Certainly the application of chaos theory is something that can only best be appreciated with the benefit of hindsight.
Our Insitute has received some of the harshest criticism ever recived by the free press. They have called our passive, laissez-faire attitude towards the study sheer laziness and irresponsibility. However, they have also been quick to pin the blame on us when some major disaster strikes where one of our students or faculty happened to be in the vicinity. The fact that we proved the disaster was significantly LESSENED by our presence is, of course, discounted.
The other major criticism, and one that cuts a little closer, is that students and professors at our Institute are 'stupid', 'airheads', or worst of all, 'uncaring'. Nothing could be further from the truth. Chaos theory may not require a mind-boggling intelligence, but it requires heart, and feeling, something many supposed 'rational' scientists forget. We like to think that we are so successful because, in the end, we will always choose our friends and companions, even though it might not be seen as the 'right' thing to do.
There is no real set answer to that. Most of our students simply happened by one day, purely by chance. Others decided that this was where they needed to be at the time, and they'd see what came of it. If you are fated to be a student of ours, it will happen. Keep your mind open all the time.
A simple answer there, one given by our co-founder at a ceremonial dinner: "Do what you want, the way you want to."
