Extension of figure 4a, using the product of three error functions. Assume, now, three characteristic parameters, X = IAB and Y = RD as above, with Z = PI representing the degree of policy/ideological rigidity. Again, the fundamental assumption is that H (X, Y, Z) will have a (gentle) peak near the origin. Then S = H (X, Y, Z) - XdH/dX - YdH/dY - ZdH/dZ has a very complicated system of quasi-stable, locked-in, resilience modes. Again transition between them would require external forcing. Note particularly the nested surfaces with different values of H. Attaining low levels of IAB, RD, and PI requires high values of H, which, in turn, requires high internal channel capacity, i.e. low social disintegration, and, broadly speaking, high use of energy resources. Institutions suffering social disintegration or resource limitation will be confined to the outer shells, and will experience high levels of pathology. Note that low internal channel capacity – high structural rate distortion within the organization – can, in this model, make it virtually impossible to use even available resources effectively.
