In regards to a discussion on the CM GP Forum arguing the terms order of nature and natural order from the books themselves it seems there's some controversy.
I know for many years it was said the Gorean Philosophy was based on Natural Order, later came Order of Nature which bumped Natural Order away as a boo boo.
The current controversy is a FW claiming "natural order" was never used in the book series. Others are unsure and one or two claim otherwise.
So here I've been flipping through Explorers (the New for 1979 edition, first printing March 1979) where I haven't come across the words as of yet, but .... going out on a limb here.. I believe I do recall the words natural order before and if not more than once in the series, too. I'll lick the lash if I'm not recalling properly.
The FW claims not so.
I think the thread is called-- So I've discovered this thing called "Gorean".
In any event, I'm not posting anything in regards to it. Well, 'less I find the discrepancy for certain.
Perhaps the problem is different publications of same book title.
The quoted text and page number on the thread listed is not in my book.
I do love puzzles..
And I really would do the work...
Until next time...
Edit to add- I couldn't stop looking.... sheesh
