Stuart A. Kauffman

The rate of exploration of novel possibilities must be gradual enough that natural selection can weed out the losers. If not, the biosphere as a whole would diffuse into new ways of making a living so rapidly that selection would not be able to control the exploration, and we would soon falter…Globally speaking, for the entire biosphere, this suggests that we enter the adjacent possible about as fast as we can get away with it.
