Order In The Universe

I believe there is an order to the universe.  Everything in the natural world is on schedule, it maintains a balance, and when left alone, minimizes chaos.  In the natural world, the fly in the ointment is mankind.  Most scientists would agree the universe as we know it began in the chaos of the “Big Bang”.  Although born in chaos, the results of the Big Bang quickly began organizing themselves into the worlds, galaxies, and universes that we have now.  I generally dislike chaos.  When I am flung into a chaotic situation, the first thing I try to do is create order.  I believe that when there is order, balance, logic, and a certain kind of patience that allows things to flow naturally, everything is better.  The more you mess with order, the more likely you are to create chaos.  I realize that my point of view has a lot to do with my own personality.  One trait of my personality is that I am a perfectionist.  Perfectionists love order.  Disorder and chaos makes people like me crazy.  When perfectionism is taken to extreme it is called anal retention and occasionally I suffer from that trait as well.  More often than not, however, my perfectionism, and the perfectionism of others, creates positive results.  When there is disorder and chaos, results can be difficult to achieve.  In my experience, when you shoot from the hip, or work in a chaotic and disordered way, you frequently miss the target.
