Chaos Bound Theory: Understanding Evil
Note- In this thread i:
a) hold no political views
b) hold no religious views
c) am examining this from a universal perspective
We’ve always heard about there being two sides to everything, the good and the bad, the light and the dark, the slow and the fast and the higher and
lower. For CB theory to make any sense at all it is necessary to understand this, as first priority. Therefore, it would seem, that one cannot exist
without the other, that evil cannot exist with good and that good cannot exist with evil.
So, it would only make sense to assume, as a general statement, that opposites give rise to each other and hence allow each their own existence. Of
course this is not a new theory, the philosophy of yin and yang has been around for centuries, but this is a more specific approach, hence it’s more
post-modern label. For the sake of this thesis, the world and its political relations, its history and its general progression with the human race
will be exemplified. But, let’s take a look at some other examples before we attempt to make sense of the main argument.
Examples of Chaos Bound Theory in action (Yin and Yang)
Darkness and Light: Night time and day time are separate, but are whole. We cannot have day all the time, as the Earth is spinning, and while half the
world moves into darkness, the other appreciates the light. For half the world to appreciate light while the other appreciates darkness, we rely on
the yin’s and yang’s of spacial gravity, this is a different topic altogether, but in general we rely on the interplay of the planets for us to
experience one part of a whole, and hence seeing both co-exist.
Sleeping and being awake: What might sound like a silly example is the perfect representation to the coming theory. We as humans require sleep to live
a mentally and physically stable life. Sleep deprivation can cause complete mental and physical breakdowns. One must sleep in order to have the
strength to live, as one is living he needs to rest, hence sleep.
We as humans aim to maintain the yin’s and yang’s in our life, whether consciously or unconsciously, in attempt to live what we define as a
‘normal’ life. We try to balance our work and our family/friends. We try to balance our school lives with our social lives. We try to balance our
diet and our exercise. One could then conclude that this mostly subconscious existence in regards to sustaining the opposites in our life is human
nature; as we know abandoning one side would result in the complete collapse of the whole. If we focused only on work, we would devastate our family,
if we focused only on our social lives; we would get no school work done and make no progress.
To relate this ‘maintenance’ to the coming theory I would like to pose a question. Could this maintenance be possible on a global scale by the
powers that be?
Chaos Bound Theory
We have all here observed the chaos or ‘evil’ in our world, that is happening now, has happened before and will in all certainty continue to
happen. The powers that be (those in charge of the world’s money, controlling politics, etc) seem to have a keen eye for ‘balance’. Would it be
plausible that those in charge know that there must be a balance in the world, to the very largest scale?
This theory aims to understand the evils of the world; is it possible that everything, all the wars of our history, are simply the result of greedy
men seeking their own agendas, or is there more to it? If we call one side of each opposite the ‘bad’ side, then we begin to understand how
everything needs a ‘bad’ side in order to exist. If those in charge knew, somehow had attained knowledge (possibly religious?) that the world as
we know it cannot exist in complete chaos, and cannot exist in complete harmony, then is it possible that whatever their beliefs are, are directly
causing all the wars, all the chaos in history and in our present day, for the simple aim of ‘maintenance’? Or it could all be happening due to
human nature, human nature on a global scale. Could it be so that our actions are our own and the balance of war and peace we see today is simply
natures way of maintaining itself? Of course this would rely on the idea that we cannot have a perfect world, one which i know many people on here
would strictly abstain from.
But let’s examine in it all in perspective. If the theory of balance and opposites, of yin and yang, applies to all of Nature and the Universe; then
why not to the world and its societies? This does offer a sort of ‘dark’ hope; if this is indeed the motive behind the powers in charge then we
can be assured that we won’t see a world ravaged by chaos and wars. There must always be a balance.
