Granted that disorder spoils pattern, it also provides the material of pattern. Order implies restriction; from all possible material, a limited selection has been made and from all possible relations a limited set has been used. So disorder by implication is unlimited, no pattern has been realized in it, but its potential for patterns is indefinite. This is why, though we seek to create order, we do not simply condemn disorder. We recognize that it is destructive to existing pattern; also that it has potentiality. I symbolizes both danger and power.
