From equilibrium to information processing/ Informationsverarbeitungsprozess 

When people say things like “We can balance economic growth with environmental protection” they are just kidding themselves (or lying). What they really mean is that we can have economic growth without causing excessive damage to the natural environment. Then we have to talk about what excessive damage means. But we can’t honestly claim that we aren’t damaging (or at least destabilizing) the natural environment.
