Order in Context
But what exactly is this order ? Essentially it is whatever we say it is ! A regularity, conforming to some human definition, 4 of a kind in this case (the kind could be anything - value, colour, size, age, etc.). Our classification of the world imposes order in various forms, depending upon our viewpoint <lucas/value.htm>. We largely see what we want to see... This means that order is contextual, it depends upon the environment in which it occurs, essentially being an interaction between an observer and the system, a correlation <lucas/auto.htm> between object and subject.
