etymology of “wryd”: an old English word that primarily means “that which comes to pass”. wyrdscience describes natural phenomena and pressing scientific questions which provide us not only with a mechanical understanding of the world, but insight into the social, cultural, and environmental changes that are coming to pass on our planet.
a more metaphysical interpretation of wyrd is that everything in the universe is constantly changing and moving towards some other state, but simultaneously being drawn into itself. all changes an object goes through can be understood through its past, and the myriad of possible trajectories of a change event tend to converge to a single, predictable outcome. wyrd as interpreted this way is useful in understanding many fundamental scientific concepts.
