Natural order is a yang view

The term “natural order”, even if implying disorder, comes from a mindset of order. It is merely the idea that nature imposes an order of higher authority, and bowing to an authority is an order thing. This is easier for an order-affine mind to accept than to realize that there is no natural order. There is only nature. Nature implies both order and chaos.
It is no surprise that in our world that has been so much shaped by order addicts and control freaks the term “chaos” has such negative connotations (and “anarchy” with it). But keep in mind the great horrors that excessive order can manifest. … Especially when its imbalance is threatened to become more balanced through the forces of chaos and it tries to preserve its dominance.
One might find that it is often not chaos itself that manifests the great peril, but the fear of chaos.
