Is There Meaning in Chaos?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Just recently, it seems like everywhere I look, people are trying to give meaning to current events. ‘It’s a plague on humanity, punishment for some collective crime’, we are told by some. It’s a plague sent by God to punish us for some other collective sin’, say others. Frankly, I grow weary of all of this. Did anyone stop and think that perhaps we live in a chaotic system and this is what chaotic looks like? Does there have to be a reason for these events? Does there have to be a super power or deity behind them? And, if there was a deity or intelligence behind these events – what meaning would that have? Surely, to us, it would be chaotic and unknowable? Why do we even ask these questions? Surely, the meaning people seek isn’t to be found in the chaos at all but in how we react to it?

I do happen to believe that all is One Thing and interconnected. There is even something of a model for this and its called the Tree of life. The tree exists with three pillars – severity, mercy and balance. I consider that one must always try to seek the balance, but that may be another post. The fact is that this model – the tree of life – it has dualities (in fact there are at least 3 polarities – see The Mystical Hexagram) – but let us look at Geburah and Chesed in particular as it is instructional. In any closed system like the Tree, there must be a mechanism for destruction and it is found on the pillar of severity at Geburah. I like how this website describes Geburah,

This is the sphere of Severity. It is most singular in its purity. Like a Shire horse at work, it is blinkered and intent upon its path. This nature of evil is revealed here, in adversity and temptation; the Great War rages.

Whereas Chesed is described by the same website as follows,

This is the sphere of Mercy and Majesty. Here is the perfected nature of governance, and the highest God known to man. Compassion, cooperation and consensus are here. In the number four the power of earth is revealed, though the sphere is given to water for its passive and receptive qualities.
