Whilst hyperflunking across the interdimensional quantum vibration matrix, your spaceship detects three jumbled up signals. They sound like random noise, but you suspect they are in fact secret messages from Glycerol Soap Bomb, the ruler and Maximal Liapunov Exponent of the planet Cholesky Decomposition. The messages can be downloaded from the following locations:
We’ve touched on the difference between chaos and randomness before. One strange property of chaotic systems is that they are able to synchronise to each other, so that in spite of their intrinsic tendency to vary wildly, a chaotic system can (actually quite easily) be persuaded to match the behaviour of another chaotic system. As this post will show, it is possible to use this property for a kind of secret message transmission.
