Every passion borders on chaos, that of the collector on the chaos of memory.

 

I got this line from a book called The Memory Palace. It doesn't seem to me like a sentence and I don't think I understand it. Can you please paraphrase it? Thanks

    It probably makes a lot more sense in relation to the rest of the book.

    Every passion borders on chaos, that of the collector on the chaos of memory.

    Every passion borders on chaos; the passion of the collector borders on the chaos of memory.

    chaos = confused unorganized state of something
    memory = the store of things that can be remembered and the process of recalling them
