Creative Destruction

Mass extinctions lead to mass innovations.

Everyone knows about entropy, but somehow they miss its complement, syntopy.  Yet the two forces always work together, destruction and creation.  If it weren't for dying stars, we'd have no planets; and if not for the loss of the dinosaurs, no humans.
