Order Vs Chaos
As far as I can tell order and chaos are the two basic forces in the universe. The universe is dualistic and you can always find two opposites to compare as the two basic forces, but order and chaos are good ones to look at.
Which is good and which is bad? That is entirely relative and depends on the context. In some stories order has become dominant in which chaos is the solution. A good example of this is Star Wars were the orderly system needs rebels to bring in some chaos. The argument for chaos is freedom. Then you have chaos in the majority position and order rises up to oppose it. I imagine the sheriff in the wild west as the order in a chaotic environment who rescues people from the chaos.
Different stories will paint one or the other as the good side but typically if either side becomes too dominant, then we root for the other side as the solution. We see this same story play out in real life. A government (order) becomes too restrictive; too many taxes, too much control, etc. and a rebellion rises up to overthrow it. If the rebellion is successful, it soon finds itself with the problem now being the instrument of order. Its victory immediately puts it in the position of the thing it just sought to overthrow.
The interesting thing is that often you will see wise people who know that order leads to chaos and chaos leads to order. In times of order these people will use the negative aspects of chaos to show the need for order. An example is a protest that has a member of order do something violent in order to bring about the need for more order. This is basic false flag stuff which is obvious and has been done for thousands of years. It is not always the case and doubt is the way that it gets by. You don't know if the agent is really on the side it says it is or not.
I think about all this because I have been watching the show West World which I reference very heavily in the Are You Conscious Series (check it out - I had to stop blogging for 6 months to write it). In the third season of this show the question of order or chaos is the overarching question. Should a society be free or ordered through control? The old battle of predestination vs free will. The nice thing about this show is that there is no answer. We see both sides go back and forth. There is suffering on either end.
It is interesting because in our own society we often see the right depicted as the order and the left rebelling against it but in many cases the left is trying to use government (order) to enforce peoples' behavior. An example is the governmental enforcement of pronouns or something to that effect. On the other hand the right very much regulates and controls. The truth is that what ever your norm is, that is what you want to maintain. So order and chaos are just tools that people use to promote whatever position they find themselves desiring.
If you start to see that order leads to chaos and chaos to order you will see the tightrope that the world is walking to allow for life to happen. The times we are in seem chaotic and from that you will see order as the solution. A current example is the order to put on a mask. Try to see these forces for what they are. They are two powerful dualistic constructs that don't war with each other but dance together. The world is made of layers of order and chaos. Any time you think it is purely one or the other take a closer look. We need them both, the question is when.
