Order and Chaos

More to follow but I have begun to see how everything in our “Being” can be ordered into Order and Chaos. Order is the know, Chaos is the unknown. The following is an excerpt from Jordan Peterson’s “12 Rules for Life” that summarizes the balance between these two forces.

You can’t just be stable, and secure, and unchanging, because there are still vital and important new things to be learned. Nonetheless, chaos can be too much. You can’t tolerate being swamped and overwhelmed beyond your capacity to cope while you are learning what you still need to know. Thus, you need to place one foot in what you have mastered and understood and the other in what you are currently exploring and mastering. Then you have positioned yourself where the terror of existence is under control and you are secure, but where you are also alert and engaged. That is where there is something new to master and some way that you can be improved. That is where meaning is to be found.”
