Thought Experiment Efficiency

Efficiency is the ratio of the work a system performs to the energy expended in performing the work. To maintain or increase efficiency as a system shrinks, its decreasing mass and changing surfaces must keep pace with changing energetic processes. Integration and efficiency depend upon on a machine's anatomical design, and in living systems, physiology continually feeds back to fine-tune morphology. If a machine or organism is to adapt to changing environments, structure and function must evolve together. Structure is inseparably linked to function.
