What i find do fascinating is how universal this diagram is in not only hard science but in sociology and other areas. Most of the population lives in the middle where it’s comfortable and secure. Some live on the periphery. The ones on the periphery are the pioneers/explorers/rebels/deviants who are exploring every option so that the bulk can slowly drift that way if it seems nourishing. Although this country may be about to bud and go through meiosis.
Definitely! I think it’s axiomatic for most systems because of the nature of variation itself, which Nature is the chief mechanism.
