Everything is set up like a small world function from the universe to quantum mechanics. Every social encounter/place, pond, layout of houses, etc. This knowledge when grasped opens up literally every single door of knowledge that exists. "Flipping points" of dynamic problems once reached allow a system to change very rapidly when pushed over it- Ex: when a pond reaches a certain level of murkiness it "flips" to all murky, but when people do enough work to clean up a small very certain point of the pond it flips back to clear again in the same short period of time. Change doesn't just happen instantly or over very long periods of time it happens because of the pressure applied as certain point in its structure that forces it to adapt or fall apart.
