Knowledge has to be organized so it can be taught, and it has to be reduced to information so it can be organized. This implies that organization is an inherent property of the knowledge itself, and that disorder and chaos are simply irrelevant forces that threaten it from outside. In fact it's exactly the opposite. Order is simply a thin, perilous condition we try to impose on the basic reality of chaos  . . .
