Stability is death

Somewhere back in college I while I was working on autonomous robotics controlled by natural systems modeling, I coined the phrase, "stability is death". In my research I came to the realization that stable systems don't exist in the natural world, only in artificial worlds created by man. Stable systems tend to die off, sometimes they would go quietly into the night, and sometimes they'd go with a violent end that no one saw coming. Our environment is built on the idea that nothing is constant. Change can, will and does happen. Working to keep systems stable without change is a loosing battle every time.

Do you embrace change, or do you resist?

Do you promote change or just let it happen naturally?
