It sure does sound like it. But if you want to put some substance behind your thoughts, I recommend this book:
I remember being blown away by this book as a teen: James Gleick - Chaos: Making a New Science
1. Chaos: Making a New Science [ ] still makes an awesome read despite its age.

2. Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers [ ] - great book on stress and its effects by Robert Sapolsky (have you seen his lectures on behavioural biology? Fascinating stuff, even if you always thought 'meh, biology' - the guy is an amazing lecturer)

Many of the scientists involved in the genesis of chaos theory were active in multiple disciplines, notably meteorology. It's a central theme in James Gleick's Chaos: Making a New Science[1]. It's a fascinating book, and would be a great read if you were tickled by the article.
