Abstract: Using methods of entropy in ergodic theory, we prove that positive topological entropy implies chaos DC2. That is, if a system $ (X,T)$ has positive topological entropy, then there exists an uncountable set $ E$ such that for any two distinct points $ x,y$ in $ E$,

$\displaystyle \liminf _{n\to \infty } \frac 1n \sum _{i=1}^n \mathsf {dist}(T^ix,T^iy)=0 \ \ \ $$\displaystyle \text {and} \ \ \limsup _{n\to \infty } \frac 1n \sum _{i=1}^n \mathsf {dist}(T^ix,T^iy)>0 . $
