Because the world had never intended for life to appear, the world had no obligation to sustain it. Life had to fight for every breath, tested constantly by an unwelcoming and unforgiving environment. Species appeared by chance. Individuals that stumbled on lucky genetic errors survived. The environment loomed over every living thing, ready to challenge, ready to destroy. It was an awesome responsibility life faced: Get it right, or die. These errors of thought have guided most of our decisions.
They come up with better solutions, but they are based on a different kind of logic: trying thousands of things simultaneously to find what works. ” Parallel systems are not afraid of error. Errors are expected, explored, welcomed. More errors create more information that results in a greater capacity to solve problems. Any one error counts for less because, while there are more of them, they are not linked together. This is not the case in the more familiar serial system, where activities build on one another in lockstep sequences and our work depends entirely on what others have done.
