Let's examine the words "chaos" and "transition" and apply liberally to the state of your personal world
Let's start with the word chaos, a link wasn't listed but according to Google "chaos theory, in mechanics and mathematics, the study of apparently random or unpredictable behavior in systems governed by deterministic laws. A more accurate term, deterministic chaos, suggests a paradox because it connects two notions that are familiar and commonly regarded as incompatible."
To apply liberally to the state of your personal world, I cite all the current "social" problems to include living with "monetary worries" such as inflation affecting everything you buy, including gas, the cost of heating, air conditioning.
And as well, unexpected physical issues, no matter how old or young you are, we all had almost three years of COVID 19 restrictions and vaccinations, yet some were attacked by variations of the COVID plague despite the continuous series of more https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/chaosvaccinations.
Unexpected events like a car crash can trigger all sorts of latent physical problems related to lifestyle choices.
Over-dependence on "big pharma" allows taking a pill instead of changing bad habits, like over-eating, or eating foods that cause diabetes, for instance, or, substituting whatever "big pharma" advises to lower blood pressure, instead of exercise like daily walking up and down hills for at least a half hour.
As for the word "transition" I don't have a link but according to Google, "Transition words and phrases (also called linking words, connecting words, or transitional words) are used to link together different ideas in your text. They help the reader to follow your arguments by expressing the relationships between different sentences or parts of a sentence."
Here's another Google example re examples of "transitions" without a link, "On the contrary, contrarily, notwithstanding, but, however, nevertheless, in spite of, in contrast, yet, on one hand, on the other hand, rather, or, nor, conversely, at the same time, while this may be true."
How about linking this word "transition" to "chaos" and combine liberally to your personal world.
The uncertainty of what the government is going to do to make your life more difficult, whether it be deciding on limits to where you drive and what kind of car you drive, or perhaps not allowing you to drive, perhaps limiting you to public transportation but not guarantying your safety, is disturbing.
And government is the one who decides whether you can own a home by adding property taxes you can't afford, or mandating how you heat and cool your home by allowing utility providers to charge what they want without any traditional oversight by your state PSC, since the legislature of your state has "redefined" the standards for public utilities.
The very idea that your government can decide how and where you live and by whose standards, what kind of medical care you must have and are limiting your choices to what the politicians you didn't elect, but who were elected by allowing the voting process to go on for months and are not requiring ID, are now elected to define.
Politicians you didn't vote for have special privileges like "security protection paid for by taxpayers" and you have to wonder if the "red flag law" will be triggered to limit your ability to defend yourself even when you are attacked, plus you can be sued for "protecting yourself."
Even worse, your government can define "transition" as ideas and more than one thing at one time, perhaps conversely so, and make you unsure about what they will do next to limit what you are allowed to do.
