I expect that we all know person whose life is just mess. These disasters can come in many forms: maybe they ca hold job, or else they do want to, choosing laziness at expense of their future; maybe they get in and out of relationships for arbitrary reasons, leaving trail of broken hearts in their wake; maybe they drink or do drugs to brink of death, only to sleep it off and do it again next day; or maybe they are just inordinately impulsive or otherwise unreliable in other ways. Theyre living chaotic life, one that is without structure and out of control. When we encounter such person, standard advice is that they should try to settle down. They should establish comfortable and maybe get marry. They should find job they like and stick to it. They should choose place they like to live in and stick to it. All rapid changes associated with chaotic life are great source of grief, and can be dangerous. We want to live stable life, one that is structured and in control. Most people I know from my time growing up in small city in Midwest opt for stable life. With stability comes high degree of comfort and predictability. You know you are coming home to. You know what doing Thursday night. Stable Life Is Life Of Home, Of Family, Of Game Nights And GameDays. It soft blanket and good movie. Its routine. Its great. Downside Of Stable Life Is Lack Of Novelty, Which Is Why Midlife Crises Are Thing. Is this all there is!? Is fair question when youve spent your whole life doing same thing, day after day and week after week. Theres evidence novelty is adaptive and healthy, but it is also just fun. Sometimes relationships end because one of partners changes; sometimes they end because one of them doesnt. Too much stability can lead to and deterioration. As Tim Minchin say, somewhere between chaotic life and stable one, I want to suggest that there is better option: Ergodic life. What I imagine is kind of controlled chaos, situation in which people actively try new things all time but do so carefully, in planned way. Ergodic life is one of and exploration, but also of paying attention to quick feedback. Ergodic life is antifragile, maintaining possibility of huge gains from novelty without sacrificing best aspects of stability. For example, one might decide to try camping, really give it serious attempt, only to discover that they actually enjoy it. Person Living Ergodically Learns Fast And Moves To Next Thing, Whereas Chaotic Person Ignores Feedback And Just Decides What To Do On Whim Next Time.
