The human body has a fractal essence: not only on the level of the physical structure but also in terms of the dynamics of many processes that happen within. The systems that exhibit fractal dynamics are known to be more resilient and adaptive. Therefore, it is possible that if we can modulate fractality in a system, we can support its homeostasis, make it more resilient and adaptive.
Modulating variability in a text or a conversation can have an interesting effect on its dynamics. A writer will never get stuck, a conversation will always be interesting, a discourse will stay ecological at its core. We propose an approach based on panarchy, embracing diversity and homogeneity at the same time, as applied to discursive practices.

How can we rethink our understanding of conflict / war and learn something from the dynamics that it produces?
