No paradox at all. While astrology may seem to point to an ordered
universe, it actually points to the universe *as it is.* The ancients,
in their study and development of astrology, have left us with the
legacies which include allowing for disorder, because disorder has been
observed as part of the "system" and its astrological indicators
It seems more likely that the universe is subject to LAWS, but that
these laws may *appear to us* to bring about what *we* call disorder,
but which fits into the general scheme. I you fall into the right
swamp, you could become an alligator's dinner quite fast. LAW:
Alligators have to eat.
