The Great Binary Divide 

This rather simple narrative exhibits the interrelationship between order and chaos. On one level, I see chaos as harboring the conditions of possibility for order. Not only for order to spring out of it but for chaos itself to order, even in a chaotic fashion. Yet I, as we all do, bring my fetish for order, my will to order, in play. How else can I and my students deal with the situation unless there is some order, some structure? Why could I not let chaos take care of itself? Order however it happened to order-- whether orderly or chaotic? A provisional answer--chaos and order are but two levels of the same thing, even though we have drawn the line of the great binary divide between them and can no longer see them as such.
