freeorder is not spontaneous order

it is a balance among kinds of order that serves quest

Is freeorder a synonym for spontaneous order? No. It is not.

If it were so there would be no need for the word.

freeorder is made of three essentials:

Designed order (intention)
Spontaneous order (self-assembly, autopoiesis)
Quest (individual and shared)

Above all, freeorder, is a balance that must be sought, endlessly. (Tao)

The quality of the balance is judged by service to quest.
