Actually there are mass extinctions too, and then the "status quo" is to die. And that's what the masses do.

A lot of our individual ancestors were probably survivors of various historical calamities... for which many others were not so lucky.

Keep moving with the herd for so many lifetimes and you will see the shortfalls of being unable to think originally.

There's an old Wall Street saying: "If you have to fail, at least make sure you fail like everybody else is doing."

Or...have you ever watched a school of fish like sardines in the ocean or an aquarium, etc? The group is always sqirming and twisting and morphing because the fish have a single, vital algorithm: "get as close to the center of the horde as possible." This means the outside is always pushing in and everyone is seeking the most "normal" possible state...while, simulataneously, due to this movement, the very definition of "normal" (i.e., the position of the "center" in the water) is always changing.
