This is what happens when weight lifters add a few pounds to a workout or when runners like Jim and Bill add a mile to their daily workout once or twice a week for a couple of weeks and then add another mile a couple of times a week for the next two weeks. Eventually, they are running an extra 10 miles per week without casting their entities into chaos. Various portions of their system may be a little sore and tired from time to time, but there is little risk of systemwide failure. This same persistent disequilibrium must be constantly applied to any system that strives for improvement.

However, cells can’t go where they want; they must stay and work it out. So, pushed out of equilibrium and thrown into a state of chaos by Bill’s jogging, the calf entities have no other choice but to begin to interact in different ways if they are to deal with the feedback the system is giving them, as the jogging causes all sorts of problems. Each of the entities has no broader knowledge of the challenge than what it experiences from interactions with nearby entities; none of them understand what’s happening except that they are suffering (well, they don’t actually understand anything at all, but some degree of anthropomorphism is necessary for the story).

At the same time, they faced drought, disease, wild animals, floods, famines, prairie and forest fires, ice ages, short life spans, and infant mortality rates in the 90% range. As humans developed over the last few hundred thousand years, those who were too slow, stupid, weak, prone to illness, or not willing to keep struggling did not survive. Only those who strove against all odds (and were lucky) survived and produced offspring. Given this history, how can any manager say that his or her employees can’t handle the work or aren’t tough enough?
