The pursuit of speculative generality often leads to solutions that are not anchored in the reality of actual development. They are based on assumptions that later turn out to be wrong, offer choices that later turn out not to be useful, and accumulate baggage that becomes difficult or impossible to remove, thereby adding to the accidental complexity developers and future architects must face.

So, we automate actions, diagnostics, and processes. Automation removes the chance for an error of commission, but increases the chance of an error of omission. No automated system can respond to the same range of situations that a human can. Therefore, we add monitoring to the automation. More software, more opportunities for failures.

Even when they work, they are unpredictable because the state space of a large network is, for all practical purposes, infinite.
