Nature and Balance

The earth doesn't crash into the sun because of a balance between gravity and an inertia that would otherwise take the planet away in a straight line. What exists is what works.

A tree functions only in balance with conditions of its environment, deciduous trees and trees with pine needles and colder climates, broad leaves in warm climates.

One way or another an individual functions in balance with another person or persons. The imbalanced are isolated one way or another, perhaps put into solitary confinement. If they are left to wander, they are forced to look for their own balance with nature.
