Daily observations at or near Two Dot Spot, written by hand on the backs of postcards that record with ink and coffee a few minutes of the earth's orbit around the sun. The cards are physically mailed from Two Dot, Montana to those who have requested them...local to local. Ruth Marie Tomlinson


I am reading an article on meteorology and weather prediction. In The Weather Man Is Not a Moron, Nate Silver explains chaos theory and the power of minute difference to cause exponential changes in the world. “Weather is non-linear… it abides by exponential rather than arithmetic relationships… its dynamic – its behavior at one point in time influences its behavior in the future.” I am thinking this holds true beyond weather, an idea that is both frightening and hopeful.
