Even an untidy desk represents some sort of order. The person who created the chaos is able to navigate their way through it. The scissors are always found under a stack of papers, while the keys are located between the dirty coffee cups. Moreover, if one of the dirty cups were to accidentally fall off the table, it would not break just like that, because a certain order is present there too. I know as much about this as virtually nothing. When you tidy up a pile of things certain structures are created. When you knock them over the different ones appear. That is the nature of things.
