Order in the natural world includes not only the static and crystallized order in which entropy is zero, but also the unstable order in which new structures are formed by the work of matter and energy. The latter is ‘order out of chaos’ according to the theory of dissipative structure (I. Prigogine and I. Stengers, Order out of Chaos: Man’s New Dialogue with Nature, Bantam Books, 1984). In an evolutionary planning perspective, moreover, Jantsch argues: ‘In contrast to widely held belief, planning in an evolutionary spirit therefore does not result in the reduction of uncertainty and complexity, but their increases.
