"The capacity to change in such a way as to remain stable when the ground rules change is a higher-order level of stability" #readingToday

The Second Law of Systems-Survival
We are now deep in the realm of Paradox. This being the case, we fearlessly propound the Second Law of Systems-Survival in its most provocative and paradoxical form: IN ORDER TO REMAIN UNCHANGED, THE SYSTEM MUST CHANGE Specifically, the changes that must occur are changes in thepatterns of changing(orstrategies) previously employed to prevent drastic internal change. The capacity to change in such a way as to remain stable when the ground rules change is a higher-order level of stability, which fully deserves its designation as Ultra-stability.
