bringing order to chaos

chaos to order

Someone I spoke to today, said they see their role as bringing order to chaos.  Now I don’t wish to dismiss this skill. I could probably do with an injection of this ability myself at times, but I do wonder …

… what’s wrong with chaos?

When did we decide chaos was a bad thing, something to be controlled, managed, ordered?

Chaos theory expounds that complex systems, whose behaviour is highly sensitive to slight change in conditions, can generate strikingly great consequences from very small alterations.

That could be a good thing, couldn’t it?  Given we are all uniquely complex, given all our human interactions are complex, given our world is complex, maybe we are denying ourselves unimaginable possibilities, inconceivable freedoms, great achievements by setting out to order the chaos?

Maybe instead we should allow more chaos in the order?  Let it be?
