"Vitality springs from diversity -- which makes for real progress
so long as there is mutual toleration, based on the recognition that
worse may come from an attempt to suppress differences than from
acceptance of them. For this reason, the kind of peace that makes
progress possible is best assured by the mutual checks created by a
balance of forces-alike in the sphere of internal politics and of
international relations."

B. H. Liddell Hart

    I do think that one of Vitality's forming elements may be diversity. Progress' forming elements are most often attributable to vitality. An A + B + C =, with a few rules thrown in, can bring about the results stated.

    In the ennobling presence of Virtue, Vitality cannot but spring from wholesome diversity.

    In the absence of tempering Virtue, diversity, commonly, is synonymous with chaos.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill
