New Systems mean new problems. Once a system is set up to solve some problem, the system itself engenders new problems relating to its development, operations and maintenance.

The author points out that the additional energy required to support the system can consume the energy it was meant to save. This leads to the next : John Gall. Mayr’s Systematics and the Origin of Species () represents a selfconscious effort to explicate the significance of population variation in the understanding of evolutionary processes and the origin of new species.
