People often use the word chaos. Until recently, this word did not pose a question for me; however, I now think it signifies something that does not exist.
By the dictionary’s definition, chaos means a state of utter confusion and disorder – a baffling, inexplainable something that has dropped irrationally out of the blue. As I perceive it, nonetheless, our world, its people, and this universe are actually in a state of order, not chaos. This observation is not related to any religious doctrine but rather from a consideration in logic.
Everything exists as a consequence of relationship. Each action, a follow-through of a preceding whatever, consecutively, reacts in relative repercussion, which in turn causes something else to happen. We are part of a falling domino principle existing in crisscrossing lines hitting each other. Whatever decision I make in action, will produce a consequence of some kind. Whatever decision you make, in turn, will manifest an effect.
This to me is order.
Nothing happens unless something precedes it. A preceding force pushes all thoughts, actions and events. When we examine that preceding force, we would say, "Oh yes, of course, it was caused by such and such. This resulting occurrence was obvious to happen and not surprising at all."
Is this not order? How can any event be underlined chaotic? Any accident can be analyzed as to what led up to it.
Our ignorance of preceding force causations is the foundation of our chaos misperception. We see or learn of pandemonium and incorrectly use the word chaotic to define it. In fact, each eventuality always has a causation. There is no happenstance. Any occurrence is a relative consequence of an interaction between two elements that produce an occurrence that bumps into another element that produces another occurrence and on and on.
Everything happens for a reason even if that reason is a thought energy that leads to a decision that causes a reaction or the flapping of a butterfly's wings that causes a turbulence across the world.
There is a proposal by The Chaos Theory that the flapping of a butterfly's wings in New Mexico causes a hurricane in China. This theory, to me, does not support disorder or chaos but rather a system of inter-related chain events. That we believe in chaos is our obtuseness in understanding the intricate domino coordination into which we have emerged. In other words, the hurricane in China did not appear by happenstance, it was a result of a butterfly’s wings flapping in relation with another force and so on and so on. There were a series of logical acts, one leading into another in order.
Not an order where events appear as you would like but rather an order where one thing influences another in a mysteriously ever-changing principle. When we consider this, that everything is in relationship and we, part of this, with our thoughts, decisions, and acts also in relationship, are we not also ordering our reality?
If we want a more beneficial reality for ourselves, we need to stop using the word chaos and take responsibility for the type of order we are creating.
