Red Queen Principle

 

(after Beyond the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carrol, where the Red Queen points out "in this place it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.") In evolution the principle says that for an evolutionary system, continuing development is needed just in order to maintain its (relative) fitness. (See the red queen principle in Principia Cybernetica) [L. Van Valen 1973]
