# Oh absolutely. I had a rule since I was a kid. “Beware of groups of 3″. What I’d noticed is that when three get together in agreement, something novel forms between them, distinct from each individually. It’s not lowest or highest common denominator as I’d originally thought but something irreducible. (it could be a complex form of lowest or highest common denominators but it still combines into a new personality, shared by the group that disappears when pairs or individuals again). So, I’m aware of it, for sure. It’s powerful.

Origin of Chaos Theory – 1975
” Period Three Implies Chaos
Tien-Yien Li and James A. Yorke “
https://www.jstor.org/stable/2318254But when was first researching Chaos Theory, this helped me realize that I wasn’t nuts.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharkovskii%27s_theorem“Tien-Yien Li and James A. Yorke showed in 1975 that not only does the existence of a period-3 cycle imply the existence of cycles of all periods, but in addition it implies the existence of an uncountable infinitude of points that never map to any cycle (chaotic points)—a property known as period three implies chaos.”

Oh wait – they got 13 solutions so far. But it wasn’t easy.
