Not the strongest, the smartest, or the cleverest survives. The one who can adapt best, survives. This is how it works in our close vicinity and this is also how it works on a much larger scale, in evolution. The odd thing is that adjustment means that you comply. You resign to a new situation and learn how to handle it effectively. But that is also temporary. Once you have gotten used to it, it has to be done differently again.
