Chaos is the total lack of organisation, and is characterised by disorder. Chaos is ubiquitous, and we humans are uncomfortable with the notion of a seemingly random universe with no discernible pattern or logic. We do not like disorder or chaos, and this is evidenced in our ceaseless necessity to categorise everything into clearly defined and explainable compartments. And when an unexplainable phenomenon presents itself, we turn to religion for answers to the innumerable mysteries that abound. “People need to believe that order can be glimpsed in the chaos of events” (Gray). However, as attested throughout history, these brief glimpses of order have turned out to be erroneous, and rather than providing knowledge, have merely perpetuated our ignorance. Several knowledge issues then arise: Why do we need order, and can the true order of things be apprehended? Do these glimpses serve a purpose even when they are erroneous must be asked? Is it enough that people believe they have glimpsed order?
