In music a natural note is neither sharped nor flatted.  Naturalness is a noun stemming from nature-like.  If like nature, a thing is natural. Yet in nature there is incredible diversity in form.  No two trees look alike.  No two human beings are exactly identical.  So we must look more deeply into what is meant by naturalness.  Perhaps something natural is not contrived; it doesn’t look made up.  Can we not say that it has an innate balance to it?  It fits, it is in a way neutral, not excessive in any direction.  In a way, balance is somewhat indefinable.  A natural object exhibits balance in an inexplicable way.  We are sure that a given object does look natural, but it is remarkably difficult to explain exactly why it does so.  So, it is this sense of naturalness, central in the philosophy of the I- Ching, that I believe we need to draw upon to better understand balance.  A natural object has an innate balance.  Living beings reflect an innate balance of form and exist subject to what we in the western world have called the laws of nature. With the aid of these laws, balance is maintained.
