The word chaord was formed by borrowing the first syllable of the two words: cha- from chaos, -ord from order... Many leading scientists believe that the principal science of the next century will be the study of complex, autocatalytic, self-organizing, non-linear, adaptive systems, usually referred to as "ComplexityTheory" or "ChaosTheory." They believe that such systems, perhaps even life itself, arise and thrive on the Edge Of Chaos with just enough order to give them pattern, but not so much to slow their adaptation and learning.
