The Rorschach Test and Organization

2

   Those who reject the ADIO philosophy say that our recognition of  an organizing principle, a universal intelligence, is only in our imagination and they cite the Rorschach test as an example.  But because something is designed purposefully without organization, order or symmetry does not mean that anything or everything else comes about by that means or, that seemingly random, chance events are not themselves intelligently designed. The Rorschach test purposely uses “designs” (ink blots) that are not immediately recognizable. That demonstrates intelligence, not lack of intelligence, just as much as the distortion of a face on a television program by scrambling the pixels when the identity is being hidden does not happen by chance but by purpose.

    Who said “we don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are”? I see organization so ADIO works for me.

      Just because order is not recognized does not mean it doesn’t exist. How many generations looked up at the stars before someone said “Hey, I saw that same star in that same place last year”?
