Space and inefficiency
Any system taken to a logical conclusion becomes too rigid and cracks. There has to be some space in between the rules, some air, room for error, even inefficiency. If a system is too tight it falls apart. The problem is caused by man's nature which is to divide and subdivide, until every square inch is codified, categorized, and lately digitized. This comes from our need to expand our power, and our need for control over this world and beyond, and in theological lingo, our need to be a God. On whatever level you take this, it is our flaw. That is why space, and inefficiency, sometimes created by lethargy, can be a positive. Why? Because it curbs this drive towards a perfect rigid system.
