Theme 70: Chaos
When you think of chaos, you might think of utter confusion, a jumbled mess, destruction, or Slack being down.
But previously the word “chaos” had a different meaning. In ancient Greece, writers and thinkers described chaos as more of an abyss, an empty void that existed before life. It wasn't until the 1600s, when it was adopted by the English language, that it grew undertones of mass confusion or pain.
Life, by nature, is chaotic. And the human brain is beautifully designed to turn chaos into order. Whether through storytelling, art, or through the veneer of self-delusions, we're built to handle the randomness and uncertainty of daily life.
When a tornado rips through town, one person may see chaos where another sees a fresh start.
So, then, a creative addendum: We are in control of the story we tell ourselves about the events that unfold before us. We can view chaos as a freight train hitting our soul or we can see it as a catalyst for clarity.
