This chapter deals with the West's passion for order. It studies and attempts to uncover architectural and structural paradigms. It implies that development is a result of its obsessive relationship to order (unlike in the east where man is obsessed with the search for wisdom). It becomes important to understand the fundamental and founding role that an idea of a natural order plays. A universal order is favoured. However, only one which is only partially understandable. With human reason it becomes possible to search for the supreme legislation of nature. The laws of nature cannot be apprehended independently of experience because all phenomena are connected by laws and principles. Through disintegration, an infinity of possibilities will open, where thinking differently will not matter but will be a question of unistruction, where singularities will not be subjugated.

Keywords:   structural paradigms, natural order, universal order, legislation of nature, unistruction
