NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman just posted a short clip in Vine of a lightning storm over Houston from the ISS point of view.
This reminded me of a small project run by a group in Germany called Blitzortung.
The project monitors all lightning strikes all around the world in real-time using a network of sensors in different locations in the globe.
You can see the lightning strikes as dots on the global map. Places with a lot dots would mean ther is most probably lightning storms occuring in the area.
Another project simply named Earth, shows a real-time visualisation of the global wind map.
Here you can see the winds flowing, circling, spiraling probably following some unknown patterns or maybe just going on chaotic paths to noone knows where.
One would think some higher beings up above is really monitoring these things using far more advanced technology than ours. Or perhaps these beings are controling the flows, the strikes using their high-tech or magical powers to maintain some balance or to achieve some unfathomable goal.
To them everything looks deterministic, even calm. To us below everything looks far chaotic and destructive.

You don't know me.
But you will soon.
For I possess the most powerful weapon of all.
More powerful even than death.
More powerful than non-existence.
I give you the Just-Life Equation.
You will be under the state of Just-Living.
You will be just waking up everyday just to go to work just to eat just to go home and sleep and wake up again.
Then you'll just do the same thing over and over again.
You will just be living.
Like a clock just ticking.
Or a candle just melting away.
Or a river just flowing.
No goal or ambition.
No hopes or dreams.
My name is Justexist.
Soon this world will be mine.
