Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think this does not contradict my point. Interactions are detereministic, but the trajectory is cahotic precisely because meeting someone , or a owrd, at the proper time, or somehting minimal can have huge change.

So the trajectories change completely...So in a snese, working with people is one of the multiple things that maek the system chaortic.. but I would say that you try to use techniques that have been proven to be effective in your everyday life. So in this sense you want them to be deterministic.. to ahve effect.. the problem is that you can not know the exact effect because the system is chaotic...

And I did not even talked about random noise (like bumping into someone).

So I agree with you, but also with Migeru, do not misunderstimate the influence of the narratives we explain to ourselves constantly.... if someone is not in the frame/history/map to cahnge, he/she will not change, no matter what.

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
