What is the natural state of nature?
If there is "purity" or "order" in a pre-civilized state of nature it would probably contain an absence of any human attempt to go against the natural order with cultural or political schemes which only man seems capable of attempting.
There is not a lack of conflict or distress in the pre-civilized or civilized natural order, which has been suggested by people like Rousseau and Marx, but what there is is evolution taking place and a natural selection of living things in always changing environments and biology.
Schopenhauer and Nietzsche came closer to the natural order in imagining a world of will and power, but Darwin was even closer to defining the natural order in both the pre-civilized and civilized states. But Darwinism was not a religious philosophy even as it was evolutionary science at its best.
Life follows purpose first before cause and effect. "A force must know its destination before it begins its movement." (Ted Chaing) Science must define the biology and physics of this force.
I believe the natural order most essentially contains the evolution of material life toward supermaterial Godhood, with many starts and stops along the way. And once attained, Godhood continues evolving, with no ending and no beginning.
That is the natural state of nature which our civilizations and our cultures and political structures need to find closer harmony with, as seen in theological materialism.
