The day before, Al Jazeera reported a gas attack on the city of Khan Sheikhoun in the Syrian province of Idlib, controlled by the anti-Assad opposition. It showed the heartbreaking video of the dying children who were the victims of this attack, and given that almost simultaneously with the speech of John Carlin, the chief anti-Clinton strategist in the Trump administration, Steve Bannon, was removed from the National Security Council (the main coordinating body between numerous intelligence agencies and the US Army), it all looked as if this chemical attack was deliberately planned for the Hillary Clinton coup d’etat .
Then came our Quantum theory, which totally transformed our image of matter. The old assumption that the microscopic world of atoms was simply a scaled-down version of the everyday world had to be abandoned. Newton's deterministic machine was replaced by a shadowy and paradoxical conjunction of waves and particles, governed by the laws of chance, rather than the rigid rules of causality. An extension of the quantum theory goes beyond even this; it paints a picture in which solid matter dissolves away, to be replaced by weird excitations and vibrations of invisible field energy. Quantum physics undermines materialism because it reveals that matter has far less "substance" than we might believe. But another development goes even further by demolishing Newton's image of matter as inert lumps. This development is the theory of chaos, which has recently gained widespread attention.
