description: an irregular state, when it surrounds us, makes us unable to identify individual things, or to find any law of variations within it. We usually regard it as having no significant nature more than the specific nature from which emerges repetition. It seems homogeneous rather than heterogeneous because we feel it as a form of flatness without specific variation. When we discover a state of irregularity or homogeneity, it may mean we are confronting something of which "lies outside the domain where it is possible to carry out a causal description corresponding to our customary forms of perception."(The Atomic Theory and the Fundamental Principles underlying the Description of Nature, Niels Bohr, 1929) In a way, the domain where irregularity governs guarantees that it is impossible for us to completely describe our world through language.
