I disagree. Reality doesn’t work that way. NASA engineers have as many rules to make a mission effective as they need to achieve a result. That is there are no arbitrary boundaries we can draw without risking the mission.
We may view social reality the same way. Drawing boundaries is often a group convenience, but this can be a short-term gain at the expense of a larger goal. So it is important to test ones ideas to see if adding or subtracting rules goes in the right direction as opposed to use some arbitrary criteria.
