Ganesha the god-maker regarded the jungle about him. Though he walked through the realm of the phantom cats, he feared no evil. For the Lord of Chaos walked by his side, and the Trident of Destruction comforted him.
Chaos, rudis indigestaque moles. Chaos, a rough unordered mass.
From the great morning of the world when first God dawned on Chaos.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Not Chaos, not The darkest pit of lowest Erebus Nor aught of blinder vacancy, scooped out By help of dreams can breed such fear and awe As fall upon us often when we look Into our Minds, into the Mind of Man My haunt, and the main region of my song.william wordsworth
In Chaos Magic , beliefs are not seen as ends in themselves, but as tools for creating desired effects. To fully realize this is to face a terrible freedom in which nothing is true and everything is permitted, which is to say that everything is possible, there are no certainties , and the consequences can be ghastly.peter j. carroll
The Myth is the Myth of the Blood, which, under the sign of the Swastika, released the World Revolution. It is the Awakening of the Soul of the Race, which, after a period of long slumber, victoriously put an End to Racial Chaos.alfred rosenberg
Art very possibly ought to be the supreme achievement, the'accomplished', but there is the other satisfactory effectthat of a man hurling himself at an indomitable Chaos and yanking and hauling as much of it as possible into some sort of order (or beauty) aware of it both as Chaos and as potential.
Poetry?is capable of saving us; it is a perfectly possible means of overcoming Chaos.I(vor) A(rmstrong) Richards
'Humour,' he said,'is emotional Chaos remembered in tranquillity.' SeeWordsworth 925:10.
Progress everywhere today does seem to come so very heavily disguised as Chaos.joyce grenfell
Learn by heart the forms to be found in nature, so that you can use them like the notes in a musical composition. That is what these forms are for. Nature is a marvellous Chaos, and it is our job and our duty to bring order into that Chaos and – to perfect it.max beckmann
I put my pencil upon the paper, doubtfully, and drew little lines, considering my theme. But I would not long hesitate in this manner, for I knew that all creation must be Chaos first, and then gestures in the void before it can cast out the completed thing.hilaire belloc
To say that man has already achieved the ultimate and absolute truth is like a tribal taboo which says that a given river may never be crossed because the witch doctor proves beyond all reason that there is only Chaos beyond. The most puzzling of all contradictory concepts given me is the human will to set up such arbitrary limits to his comprehension.mark clifton
I believe, as Lenin said, that this revolutionary Chaos may yet crystallize into new forms of life.mikhail gorbachev
Now in all of us, however constituted, but to a degree the greater in proportion as we are intense and sensitive and subject to diversified temptations, and to the greatest possible degree if we are decidedly psychopathic, does the normal evolution of character chiefly consist in the straightening out and unifying of the inner self. The higher and the lower feelings, the useful and the erring impulses, begin by being a comparative Chaos within us they must end by forming a stable system of functions in right subordination. Unhappiness is apt to characterize the period of order-making and struggle.william james
The armed forces have acted today solely from the patriotic inspiration of saving the country from the tremendous Chaos into which it was being plunged by the Marxist government of Salvador Allende.… The Junta will maintain judicial power and consultantship of the Comptroller. The Chambers will remain in recess until further orders. That is all.augusto pinochet
Psychic disturbances are the consequences of the sexual Chaos of society. For thousands of years, this Chaos has had the function of psychically subjecting man to the prevailing conditions of existence, of internalizing the external mechanization of life. It has served to bring about the psychic anchoring of a mechanized and authoritarian civilization by making man incapable of functioning independently.wilhelm reich
I would rather have as my patron a host of anonymous citizens digging into their own pockets for the price of a book or a magazine than a small body of enlightened and responsible men administering public funds. I would rather chance my personal vision of truth striking home here and there in the Chaos of publication that exists than attempt to filter it through a few sets of official, honorably public-spirited scruples.john updike
Wherever in a home there is immaturity, lack of self-control, and anti-social stimuli, coercion may be necessary in order to safeguard the other members of the family, and to prevent remorse for irreparable wrongdoing. To say that restraint administered in love and with the welfare of all concerned vividly in mind is immoral, is to reduce society to anarchy and Chaos.
Einstein's space is no closer to reality than Van Gogh's sky. The glory of science is not in a truth more absolute than the truth of Bach or Tolstoy, but in the act of creation itself. The scientist's discoveries impose his own order on Chaos, as the composer or painter imposes his; an order that always refers to limited aspects of reality, and is based on the observer's frame of reference, which differs from period to period as a Rembrandt nude differs from a nude by Manet .Arthur Koestler
People are shuffling by in long coats, with shopping bags and takeout, smoking cigarettes and feigning laughter - filling up their lives with distractions to shut out the Chaos.
...the human being...Who has organized the Chaos of his passions, given style to his character, and become creative. Aware of life's terrors, he affirms life without resentment. Friedrich Nietzsche, in A Brief Introduction to the Genius of Nietzsche, p.49 Man has developed the peculiar concept that he is not an animal at all …:;He demarcates himself in all possible ways from the bad animal and points, in proof of his "being better," to culture and civilization which distinguish him from the animal. … The theory of the German Übermensch has this origin. ~ Wilhelm Reich
And then, the quiet of the green, inland valleys of our Father's land, where no tempest comes any more, nor the loud winds are ever heard, nor the salt sea is ever seen; but perpetual calm and blessedness; all mystery gone, and all rebellion hushed and silenced, and all unrest at an end forever! " No more sea;" but, instead of that wild and yeasty Chaos of turbulent waters, there shall be the river that makes glad the city of God, the river of water of life, that proceeds "out of the throne of God and of the Lamb."
It is time to employ fractal geometry and its associated subjects of Chaos and nonlinear dynamics to study systems engineering methodology (SEM). Systematic codification of the former is barely 15 years old, while codification of the latter began 45 years ago... Fractal geometry and Chaos theory can convey a new level of understanding to systems engineering and make it more effective
Why are you here?:; My city is in Chaos because of you!
""AC, is this the end? Can this Chaos not be reversed into the Universe once more? Can that not be done?""
