Wow, good comparison between the human body and "market" feedback of individuals/cells; I can't believe I've never thought of it that way (being in the medical field, myself).

Adding to this analogy, a top-down situation would be living in a cold environment--sure, you can survive in a cold environment, but it is not an ideal place for the human body to function. A human has the choice and authority to decide to live there, but the human body will have to work harder to make it survive; your body will divert important resources to maintain the production of heat at the expense of other bodily functions. You will expend more effort in keeping your feet and hands from being frost-bitten than if you lived in a temperate climate--that extra effort could have been used to acquire more food or build onto your house.
