We are seeking what will work, not what is optimal. We are in a supermarket with thousands of choices, thousands of right choices. We are tinkering, making bricolage out of each other. We are finding the raw materials not in me and not in you but between us, and the more people and the more diverse the people, the more betweens. And then the betweens the betweens react, and here may be where we get the unexpected, because we could not see that far. Once-removed interacting.

That might be why it feels uncontrollable, because we cannot control the interacting interactions. That might be why it seems unpredictable in specific result, but why we can predict something will squish out.
