Ed Lorenz and the Chaos Monster!

Just had t write the title down.
Gears of atmospheric circulation result in spiral rotations that flip unpredictably, but nevertheless they produce a signal that is aperiodic like a beat that can't quite keep " time " . This , to me is the natural quantum clock, which when summed and averaged produces the most accurate clock we can find. The scaled clock beats out the age of the universe and takes chaos in it's stride. There is no ultimate order, but we can compute one good enough to divine order from the convoluted complexity of trochoidal motion.

Where it fails is at scales where chaos become significant. Then we need ed Lorenz to enable us to compute a new quantum clock,to establish a new " order" .
