There is more than one workable solution, and these solutions arise from many different forms of self-expression. Everyone tinkers in a unique way. No one is limited to a particular method. Everyone is free to use his or her own best thinking to discover what works. Life is not driving us toward one solution. The world is interested in pluralism. Only in this way can it discover more about itself. As we explore our organizations’ opportunities, life is calling us to experiment and change. We might discover some bold, as-yet-undreamed-of solution, some unique quirk of design or expression.
But they do know that the system will seek stability. Almost always, what begins in randomness ends in stability. Life seeks solutions, tends toward support and stability, generates systems that sustain diverse individuals. Life is attracted to order. But how it gets there violates all of our rules of good process: Life is not neat, parsimonious, logical, nor elegant. Life seeks order in a disorderly way. Life uses processes we find hard to tolerate and hard to believe in – mess upon mess until something workable emerges.
Every organism reinterprets the rules, creates exceptions for itself, creates new rules. Life uses messes to get to well-ordered solutions. Life doesn’t seem to share our desires for efficiency or neatness. It uses redundancy, fuzziness, dense webs of relationships, and unending trials and errors to find what works. ” It is the ability to keep finding solutions that is important; any one solution is temporary. There are no permanently right answers. The capacity to keep changing, to find what works now, is what keeps any organism alive.
