John's contributions are always very interesting and to the points. A more
formal note of this approach is in Notes on the Synthesis of Form by C.

Henry Mintzberg recently writings about 'ying and yang' of management and
"Why I Hate Flying" and so on are alternatives.

There are infinite possibilities here, say, refer to The Art of
Possibility by Zanders.

The best possible world is ours.
