Benefit: Understand systems
Everything has a default state and will require energy to move it to its non-default state. An amount of energy needs to be used in order to move it to a new default state. And an amount of energy needs to be used in order to keep it at its desired state. Sometimes this energy can be outsourced.
Ex: A relationship’s default state is non-existant. Left alone, the relationship will migrate to its default state. Ex: A companies default state is non-existant. Left alone, the company will migrate to its default state.
Ex: Weddings transfer part of the energy requirement from the couple to the societ & laws. Thus marrying decreases the minimum required energy to keep the relationship going. I.e. it increases the energy needed in order to stop being married.
