'Wild' alludes to a process of self-organization that generates systems
and organisms, all of which are within the constraints of--and constitute
components of--larger systems that again are wild, such as major
ecosystems or the water cycle in the biosphere. Wildness can be said to be
the essential nature of nature. As reflected in consciousness, it can be
seen as a kind of open awareness--full of imagination but also the source
of alert survival intelligence. The workings of the human mind at
its very richest reflect this self-organizing wildness.
So language does not impose order on a chaotic universe, but reflects its
own wildness back.
