Wherever there’s water
three atoms have formed a molecule of H2O,
and on that molecular level this bond
is the orderly arrangement of water,
whether that molecule combines in the form
of a solid, a liquid, or a gas.
Wherever there is life
it may be observed to be anything
from absolutely ordered, a solidly packed state,
if you will, from cradle to grave,
to a series of completely random occurrences,
the dance of water vapor in the wind of a hurricane.
But if life does seem to be this random series of occurrences,
isn’t that apparent fragmented randomness actually life’s order?
If the order and pattern of life are one in the same thing,
then in this way life is similar to water.
Wherever there is water, there is the pattern of interlocked molecules,
and that pattern is the order of water.
Wherever there is life, there is the pattern of successive events,
happenings occurring one after another,
and that pattern is the order of life.
