Title: Samsara divided by zero : can chaos theory help us understand enlightenment?
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Geoffrey DeGraff (Thānissaro Bhikkhu)

Description: Thānissaro Bhikkhu, a Western monk trained in the Thai Buddhist tradition, explores non-linear causality and the assertion that Buddhist enlightenment is uncaused. He introduces Poincaré's discovery of resonance points or indeterminate points (where the equation results in dividing by zero) within a complex system of equations and makes an analogy to the Buddhist path.
