Abstract Thought; Business Strategies and Biological Systems

To stop a computer virus you must understand how it works, grows and what it's innate purpose is? What is its program, evolution and future vectors. The fastest way to expand a business or exploit a competitor on a sports team is to use the organizational patterns of nature like swarms, ants, and viruses. The human body is has a good defense mechanism against an organic virus, it is bigger with a strong immune system

In business large corporations have the advantage; once large and a big boundary of safety as in a large complex life form you operate inside a boundary and use your overwhelming size to your advantage. It is not a whole lot less than the Motley Fools advice to be a rule breaker or a rule maker. Rule makers can put up borders to entry, choke points, change policy rules, serve political will by leverage, etc. The human body is large with many layers of defense to stop the intruding virus. We are attacked by viruses constantly and our bodies go to war without us even noticing.

Large Corporations can play offense too; they can do this by joining committees, panels, influencing the leadership. Humans can put on a jacket, turn on a heater, brush their teeth, get a flu shot, etc. Smaller companies do not have the benefit of corporate jets to loan to politicians or monies to pay lobbyist callboys. In the military the special forces have the advantage. A smaller light attack squadron needs to work in small strategic mission oriented ready room planned sorties, niche markets; like wasps, swarms, Navy Seal Teams, etc.

If you study dynamic flows of all things, work flows of all industries, infrastructure support of all we need, you will soon find that everything is nearly the same and the natural flow is always the best bet. So watch nature, study how evolution has solved the problems of survival, civilization, organization, home making, aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, communication, symbiotic relationships, etc. After all it is all one, we are all one, it is all the same and life is simply a bunch of waves interacting in a field of disruption perceived as time where all that is guaranteed is change. So will all that said Go With The Flow, but be sure you understand where the flow is going, what you wish to achieve, why you are doing it and when to get off.

Perhaps if we understand the natural order of all things, which grow and look at the methods, we can find easier ways to prevent diseases and viruses from spreading? Expand our companies to their full potential and win the game. Think on this will you? You'll be glad you did.
