Anarchy - in Nature  

Please follow above link for a systematic view

“The natural optimum state of an individual element which in turn gives way to a natural optimum state of the whole.”

Over the past few days and in the light of recent tragedies I have had the opportunity to bring this word up over and over. Otherwise the collective and everyone in it is fearful of the implications and therefore in resultant in denial of its real effect.

Anarchy is a state of nature, a logos. Of course a lot of us would point out that Anarchy had its origins as a word around the 16th century but let me tell you that it has been found in Taoism before that; Christ has been nominated as one of the most prolific Anarchists as well. To iterate further, whereas the Taoists were principally interested in nature and identified with it, the opposing sect of Confucians were more worldly- minded and concerned with reforming society (note here the underlining repetitive trend of adaptability being the progressive trait).

Those in line with ancient and Greek philosophy will know that the mythos-logos-nomos triangulation remains part of the crucial “relic grammar” of thought. Mythos is the myth, logos is what is natural (or the word of “God”) and nomos, the customs we derive out of the situation.

This logos holds always but humans always prove unable to understand it, both before hearing it and when they have first heard it. For though all things come to be in accordance with this logos, humans are like the inexperienced when they experience such words and deeds as I set out, distinguishing each in accordance with its nature and saying how it is. But other people fail to notice what they do when awake, just as they forget what they do while asleep. —Diels-Kranz, 22B1

For this reason it is necessary to follow what is common. But although the logos is common, most people live as if they had their own private understanding. —Diels-Kranz, 22B2

Listening not to me but to the logos it is wise to agree that all things are one. —Diels-Kranz, 22B50

You see, in the quantum world, as in ancient philosophy, observation changes the current state of everything.

An atom that is perfectly stable is nothing but a bunch of protons and electrons in perfect harmony. The inner consciousness of this atom (believably the neutrons) has reached a state of balance to the atom’s individual effect. Therefore such an atom has a better chance of being in harmony. Although, the moment the atom observes it’s state of peace it has changed to that of violence.

In inverse proportionality it is safe to say and assume that the moment the atom observes it’s state of violence it will begin changing towards that of peace.

With such a background, any collective that is not operated or observed by a central body of laws(state) flows naturally towards anarchy in it’s own discourse.

In today’s context, well you see this whole concept overflowing all around in different manifestations and I will sign off with an image of the most natural states of “anarchy in harmony” that I have observed. GODSPEED! :)

Design is Yin + Yang

In fact any thing in existence has the Yin + the Yang. In design though the concepts work in a deeper way than most think. Most people think design is restricted to the final visual rendering of the way something looks - but most... Continue →
