Thank you, Donal, for taking my brainstorm seriously. It may, indeed, be
the case that only one of two possibilities can be realized. That does not,
however, exclude the possibility of n>2 possibilities to begin with.
Another important consideration is the stability of the context in which
change occurs. It has long been observed, for example, that ecological
systems in stable environments tend to become more efficient, with the
number of species reduced and the system approaching an equilibrium
condition in which simple, linear relationships account pretty well for how
the system behaves. The downside is that the system becomes less resilient
and more exposed to total destruction when the environment suddenly
changes. A tropical island, for example, may be a nice place to retire —
until a force 5 hurricane passes over it.
Weather forecasting and the current use of what are called spaghetti plots
in describing the possible paths of hurricanes are a good illustration of

there is a "binary opposition" between the realisation of those
possibilities (though both may exist as possibilities). Where there is not
enough 'logical space' for different possibilities to be "realized", those
'possibilities' may be pitted against each other in terms of their being
"realized" - and in the real world this is often the case. I don't quite
see how John's concluding remarks help - either in resolving issues of
"binary opposition" or dissolving them.
