In its most simplistic form, equilibrium is a state of balance and calmness. It is a state where opposing forces or influences are in balance. It is therefore a state within which we find the most tolerable stress level. In orgtology we find meaning in opposing forces, e.g., strategy and operations. They oppose each other since they draw from the same resource pool to do different things. One task of an Orgtologist is to find equilibrium. This is a spot of perfection between what it must do to stay relevant and what it must do to perform. We do not use the word balance, since balance mostly shows a state of equality. In equilibrium the aim is to find the weight that each part must have to make the whole meaningful. E.g., strategy might take 30% of your resources and operations 70%. If that is the best state for Org, then the way it spends its resources is in equilibrium.
