The last few decades have witnessed the development of a host of ideas aimed at understanding and predicting nature’s ever present complexity (see for instance, Mandlebrot, 1982; Bak, 1996; Wolfram, 2002). It is shown that such a work provides, through its detailed study of order and disorder, a suitable framework for visualizing the dynamics and consequences of mankind’s ever present divisive traits. Specifically, this work explains how recent universal results pertaining to the transition from order to chaos via a cascade of bifurcations point us to a serene state, symbolized by the convergence to the origin in the root of a Feigenbaum’s tree, in which we all may achieve peace.
