tangled order

now you might be wondering why I’m always based on similar theories: chaos, Descartes, Foucault, Jung etc? Well you can say I’m shallow, but I use basis as basis and develop ideas so I won’t use those which didn’t really fit in me – although perhaps it will make me look smart. But sorry, I don’t need that. I don’t like doing syncretism of theories either. I’m kinda in the struggle of being a Vygotskian bastard here :p don’t worry I’m reading new stuffs too, I don’t wanna be stagnant here.

I was wondering, why do people like being in order? Personal security, I suppose. Anything else? They semioticly translate a word in its literal meaning. Human minsdet is generally built to sort things like:

order – contextually positive → white box

Chaos – contextually negative tendency → black box

I do believe some people had the ‘grey box’ but the overall tendency is the same: once one is in a box it will be hard to get them out or move it to another box. The system isn’t built to mobilize one item to another box. Now shall you say ‘order’ is white, black or grey? Is it good or bad, then? I would say neither. N people (myers briggs based) like me do had the kinda absurd boxes – maybe the uncolored ones – thus it makes us hard to explain our ideas sometimes.

My imagination would fly to a sci-fi postmodern movie when the system is a giant sticky spider web. Trying to get one out of it will only jump you from one thread to another, thus making chaos to the whole system. The whole thing is sticky and tangled. Then some sectors will be chasing you down and it’s creepy since in one click everyone will know that you’re a ‘criminal mastermind’. So where would u put the word ‘order’ now? Nah, so much for my blab. See u next time ;P

    Pardon me for not recognizing some names there, but I love chaos too.
    At some point I would love to see order, but so far I never really exist in order *yeah I always screw up*
    And my world is not dichotomous. I am a purple, not white, not black, and not even grey =))
