Combustion engines and humans generate change because first accumulate pressure and then something pops us.
Combustion engines, which move our machines work because, in them, something happens that also occurs in humans.
In engines is popped an explosive mixture (air with gasoline), so that the energy of the explosion shock jolt an object (piston). This movement generates violent shove we took the opportunity to move (by land, sea or air), to activate a knitting machine, or a mill, or a combine of wheat.
In other words: energy generating productive, useful, transforms reality, is the explosion of an explosive mixture with a spark that appears at the right time.
The similarity with humans is that something (spark) we react when accumulated frustration, anger, indignation (explosive mixture compression). When we burst, we act: calling, hitting, dropping, building. Education requires us to moderate our actions, because in their origin are as violent as the engine explosion.
Not bad to react, we act, we attempt to transform reality. In fact, both the engine and humans are part of nature and we are agents of change as any other living or natural force.
Moreover: all indicate that those most energy applied to transform reality, are primarily responsible for the adaptive changes necessary to continue living in a world that is constantly changing.
Without those explosive, revolutionary, could disappear by natural changes maladjustment.
We are all more or less explosive, change agents, adaptive evolution engines, and frustration, compression, indignation, the essential factor to act, react, we exploit, we adapt healthfully.
