To address the relative impacts of the large-scale fluctuations on the MPI stability versus potential existence of a chaotic attractor in a more general setting, a full-physics axisymmetric model developed by Rotunno and Emanuel (1987, hereinafter the RE model) is used for a set of 1,000-day simulations (see supplement for the description of the RE model: http://dx.
The 'origins' attractor remains a mystery from this perspective because it continues to be a source of much positive discussion at WWS, yet its influence remains ambiguous.

Indeed, no monadic point, or a set of points described by some well-behaved analytic function, could ever represent the strange attractor adequately, since this is a fractal.
A strange attractor limits the system to exhibit the self-similar pattern, which is like old repeating patterns; however, because they are not totally closed, other factors can influence the system and change things, sometimes dramatically.
