In my old age I stress order. I have made the great discovery that liberty is a product of order.

Will Durant





(Mat. 25:40)

For people are only truly free as servant of the Other: first of God (Deo servire vera libertate), then, replacing...



"(..) for that library where every book shall lie open to one another."


John Donne, Devotions



"What is sacred is the order that links our activities with an overarching meaning. Sacred time is the collapse of the past and future into an eternal now so that the heroics of our ancestors and our descendants are forever part of the present. "


M. Kearl on sacred time


Equality is the most important building block of justice;

who ever would complain belonging to something that everybody belongs to?


Montaigne in 'Philosophy is the art of dying'







(Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra)


"He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan carries a thread that will guide him through the labyrinth of the most busy life. . . . But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidents, chaos will soon reign."

Victor Hugo

"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency."


Daniel H. Burnham


"The art of progress is to preserve order amid change and to preserve change amid order."

Alfred North Whitehead



 Uniformiteit is het kenmerk geweest van de meeste visies op de toekomst: klaarblijkelijk behoort het tot het idee van een 'nieuwe orde'.

(Uniformity has been the characteristic of most of the visions of the future: apparently it belongs to the idea of a 'new order' }

(orig. Durch) Heen Montijn



" The theory of relativity only supposes an order of time, not a direction. "


" (paraphrase) There are open causal chains (a->b->c) and closed causal chains (a->b->c->a)"

Reichenbach in "The direction of Time"


Order is beauty

Leon Max Lederman Physicist (1922 USA)  



Plato saw this as a sign - and in that he followed Pythagoras - that basic to the chaotic of the superficial of our everyday world there is the fundament of a mathematical, and thus ideal and perfect order. That order one cannot perceive by the senses, but it is accessible to the mind and for the intellect it is understandable. The most important though is that that order exists and constitutes the factual reality.

Bryan Magee in The Story of Philosophy (transl.)




Why can't we face that
peace on earth is impossible nationalistically being divided?
To bring about Order in the world one is in need of an inward, psychological order in consciousness,


J. Krishnamurti (see movie)

'Tussen wet en daad staat de moraal'

(Between law and deed, is positioned the morality)


De huidige relativistische moraal van
'alles mag gezegd worden' zal daaraan
(aan het belang van het terugdringen van
de intolerante gevoeligheid en het fanatisme)
moeten worden geofferd.

(The present day relativistic mentality
of 'everything may be said'
will have to be sacrificed to that.)
(to the cause of driving back the intolerant sensitivity and fanaticism)

.. de geopenbaarde en de natuurlijke kennis moeten hun geldigheid op elk hun eigen gebied behouden - zonder dat ze met elkaar in strijd zijn - en de een moet niet dienstbaar zijn aan de ander.

(Both knowledge revealed and natural must retain their validity in each their own area - without them being in conflict - and the one must not be there to the service the other.)

Baruch de Spinoza - Theological-political treatise.

"Your site is very impressive. Thank you for your link and interest. We'll add a link to your site as well. Thanks again and best regards."


David Anderson, Ph.D. President Time Travel Research Center



Thanks, Webmaster & Order...

I checked your page, and find it very impressive, and ambitious.

I see I'm in some good company!

Actually, from what I can surmise in your mission statement, your site endeavors

to assist with "time management" on the Internet, which was the basic concept

behind my developing "Current Topics in Psychology". I believe anything about

psychology can be found within 2 clicks from my site -- 'time management' in

action. Best luck with your site.

Thanks again.

Michael Fenichel, Ph.D.

Very sympathetic about the purposes of the Order and considering

ways and means for contributing in some way or another.
