“Balance of Nature” is a Real Thing

“The balance of nature (also known as ecological balance) is a notion that suggests that natural systems typically exist in a balanced symmetry. They say that even a tiny shift will be adjusted by some sort of equal but opposite event that brings it back to its original “point of balance.” The equilibrium is often thought of as easily disturbed and fragile, yet powerful enough to rectify any imbalances on its own. In short, Nature teaches us that we are all a part of the interdependent web of life, and there is no such thing as a free lunch.”
