    In great chaos, there is always an order; in great order, there is always chaos.
    Of course, the things that seem the most chaotic are usually the most exhilarating.

    And it is the authoritarian personalities in the military, the hard men, who keep us safe in our beds at night.

    However the authoritarian personality has a dark side as well, in that the authoritarian personality is antithetical to the creative personality.
    True, but is creativity really needed? In high amounts?

    I have one foot on the side of order, and the other on the side of chaos. Too much external chaos is oppressive because people are preoccupied with protecting themselves instead of being free to pursue their passions, to connect and to create. When order is rigid and intrusive, exerting unnecessary control instead of simply protecting people's rights and allowing society to run smoothly, a little (or, at times, a lot of) chaos may be necessary to break it down.

    I also think a balance of order and chaos is needed on an internal/individual level in order to be a dynamic, healthy person.

    This is an interesting question as is the answer.

    The question is interesting because right now we are sharing a medium. And it is the electric medium.

    And the content of any medium is the previous medium.

    So the content of our electric medium is print. Just look in front of you now and you see print in the electric form, now distinguished from a printed book by the name electric print or eprint.

    And taking it a little further, the hallmark of print and literacy is creativity. So creativity is now the content of the electric media.

    So creativity is not just needed it is necessary to hypnotise us, to anaesthetise us, so the new electric medium can go to work transforming our psyche.

    The medium, after all, is the message, not the content.

    Once I smacked a KitchenFly from the air, it hit my brother's forehead and landed in his cereal, what luck.

    Is losing one's biases so bad?
