This is a discussion on Synergy, a natural force we can use to our advantage within the Glow-On forums, part of the Vendors category; 1-Synergy Synergy is broadly defined as the combined effects of two or more organisms to produce a greater result than each would achieve individually. Synergism ...
Synergy is broadly defined as the combined effects of two or more organisms to produce a greater result than each would achieve individually.
Synergism in nature includes altruism, reciprocity, functional interdependence, mutualism, and parasitism.
2- Human example of applied synergy.
Friendship among humans is a great example:
Two or more individuals bonded by this nexus can overcome the effect of many more individuals who don't share the same trait.
3- Synergy and problem-solving.
Problem-solving is another human example of a synergistic effect, simple solutions always have an effect that can be re-created over and over.
And you don't have to be an expert at anything:
Von Braun was not an expert at going to the moon.
The guy who invented the shopping cart was an expert shopper.
The guy who invented the egg carton (whom I happen to know) knows more about an egg than you or I.
You basically copy nature and then you find what problems you can solve.
4- A few examples of synergy in nature.
Anemones repel octopuses trying to eat the crabs and the crabs repulse starfish preying on anemones.
Clownfish also have a mutualistic relationship with sea anemones.
The anemones repel clownfish predators by stinging them with their tentacles.
A protective layer on the clownfish skin protects them from the sting.
At the same time, clownfish scare off butterflyfish that try to eat the anemones.
The effect is also created when predators have evolved body parts which look or they themselves resemble their prey's prey.
5- Fishing lures application
Let's think fishing lures:
An inorganic inanimated object, which we can make to look by a synergistic effect like organic animated prey.
Add to that the fact that fish's eyes see a UV wavelength world underwater, a place where there is almost no light.
And we can come up with solutions like the following ones.
