Successful evolutionary systems possess active filters that sort good changes from bad. If these mechanisms are too restrictive, then the system’s capacity for growth or adaptation is stunted. Such stasis is intrinsically easier to accept than the dynamic tensions of flexibility, and an engineer must be wary of erring too often on the side of stability. This makes it important to know your mind’s filters and their functions, for in the end, the product is an echo of the mind that dreamt it.
