I have always liked to generalize things no matter what they may be.

We have the power to

create anything. But If we think logically, we will always ask this question while creating a lifesustaining system without which life is impossible - "How long will it serve its purpose? or what
can I do to make this system sustain X amount of time?".
I think, no matter what the system may be; big or small; we will have to ponder upon how it can
be destroyed or what can we do if one of the systems' main functions is corrupted. A system may
be anything big like creation of life or can be something smaller like a relationship between two
people, it could be the working of a government or it could be normal day to day working of our
bodies in which millions of cells conspire to make our living possible. Other examples include Social dynamics, generating revenue for a company, living in a home, fighting any kind of war,
basically living life and also writing this blog (Without fingers and a brain I couldn't type now
could I...), etc. etc...
Since we are prisoners of time we cannot look into the future and therefore we are reduced to
speculation. Its on this speculation that we design contingencies. Sort of like a Plan A or Plan B
(Or C). Although, we are not 5th Dimensional people where we can look at time spatially.
Therefore, destruction of any system is inevitable. I believe I can generalize one of those many
destruction processes by this example.
Consider your body where every organ has its own meaning. Having said that there are also
some vestigial organs and there are some organs without which the body can work. But there are
some organs without which we cannot function. As in we cease to exist. Therefore, we need to
keep those organs healthy or at least above water in order to survive.
So, for any system to move on or survive, its quintessential parts must be above that minimum
mark below which the system is threatened in terms of survival. A mark below which the system
will be potentially damaged and will eventually cease to exist or could exist but without the same
purpose it was created in the first place. This is what we should be looking at. Identifying those
quintessential parts without which the purpose of the system will not function and then nurturing
those parts by forming a strong foundation for them no matter what changes the system goes
Now, obviously again we cannot anticipate all changes a system might encounter. The best we
can do is to have contingencies for the impossible. This is one of the main reasons why every
system has a time limit. This is one of the main reasons why every system is eventually
And I feel terrible when anyone loses a life-sustaining system. Even if failing is a part of
evolution the process is painful in every way possible and its why I agree with Friedrich
Nietzsche's book title - "The Birth of Tragedy".

You have to do whatever you can to survive and we can only do the best in the situation we are
living in.
Off course, an exception to all this is the Universe.
