Though their paths, thanks to the laws of physics,…are predictable, these paths, as shown in this small animation…by Chris Georgenes, are influenced by gravity, thrust, or obstacles,…which all add a bit of randomness to the motion.…Our world, unlike the computer,…is a random place, where motion is both chaotic and organic.…Chaotic in that, objects in motion rarely follow a straight…path, and organic in that, motion is usually smooth and fluid.…Thus, the disconnect between the medium you're using to watch…
