Packing is Chaos

Packing, which involves taking everything out of the nooks and crannies into which they have been carefully tucked and forgotten, placing them in plain view, considering their utility or sentimental value, and then redistributing them into trash, recycling or boxes for relocation to new nooks and crannies where they can be carefully tucked and forgotten anew.

It is a process filled with chaos, rather than order.  You would expect that taking your things and putting them in boxes would seem orderly, but it is not.

      “Chaos in the world brings uneasiness, but it also allows the opportunity for creativity and growth.”
 Tom Barrett

      ““Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish.””
Chuck Palahniuk
      “Chaos is a friend of mine.”
 Bob Dylan

      “Chaos is the score upon which reality is written.”
 Henry Miller

      “It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order”
 Douglas Hostadter
      “Chaos in the midst of chaos isn't funny, but chaos in the midst of order is.”
 Steve Martin
      “Chaos is a name for any order that produces confusion in our minds.”
 George Santayana
      “Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty and dies with chaos”
 Will Durant
      “Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit”
 Henry Brooks Adams

Definitely a first world condition. Ever seen those books on what other people around the world live on. It shames me when I look out at my collection of unused stuff. Not to say that I would give it up.
