Paradise lost

A violent order is disorder... a great disorder is an order. These two things are one.

- Wallace Stevens, Connoisseur of Chaos

One of man's basic instincts is to try to organize nature and make it reasonable. Our artificial environment - the home for instance - is designed to differ from nature in order to be controllable. Our culture is based on the utopia of all being organized one day.

I believe that neither physical nor mental disorder should be considered as an abnormal state, as something not belonging to our nature. The need for order gives birth to habits whereas chaos gives birth to life.
