Life and society use scaling strategies to avoid spread of disturbance with scaling that creates gaps and obstructions. Cannibalism turns offspring into food as necessary. Disease adjusts its virulence up or down to deal with changing degrees of connections between hosts. Invasion of alien species is facilitated if there is a human haven from which they can escape, as in rabbits in Australia. Endosymbiosis is a way of making biological hierarchies deeper, more robust, and resilient. It occurs in business as takeovers and franchises. Rescaling can adapt to resource availability making for a more robust scheme.
