Consider a world of absolute chaos . . . where everything thing is always changing. There is no definite. There is no consistency. What was at one point a tree could just as easily be a dog or a pond the very next second. Every single atom has an equal probability of becoming any other atom at any given moment of time. There is no means of even statistically predicting the way this jumbled mass of atoms will act.

Now, imagine that you can place yourself in this world. And imagine that you want to locate say, a book, in this world. What would you do? While if you were in this world, you would go to a bookshelf or a library, there are no such things in this world of chaos. Where do you look?

The easiest way is to stay in the same place. Since any object has an equal chance of forming anywhere at any time, there is no point in going anywhere else. After all, there's just as high a probability the book will appear over here as over there.

Thus, in a completely chaotic world, location has absolutely no meaning whatsoever. It doesn't matter where you are, because statistically, it's exactly the same as every other location in the world. This is especially true of relative location, or location in relation to a fixed point, because there are no fixed points in a completely chaotic world.

This is the Theory of Chaos and Relative Location.
