"When any part undertakes more than one function then the overall efficiency of the organisation is enhanced. Elegance is achieved when a variety of roles are accepted by each part, permitting the whole to operate at several levels of awareness, with interweaving functions inflecting one to another in a state of equilibrium and flux. It is then that an organisation can acquire the hypersensitive qualities that we associate with life, as though it's chemistry has condensed space itself into a vibrant cauldron of energy. And when the building process is not revealed it can acquire just a hint of magic."
