“Law of Least” i.e., the quantity of action necessary to effect any change in nature is the least possible, was discovered by the great mathematician Maupertius. Dr. Finche says/said that the decisive movement is always a minimum and infinitesimal i.e., “maxima minimum”. Biochemistry of blood group shows only very minute quantities of salt which are able to maintain a proper equilibrium.  Any slightest disturbance towards either more or less upsets the whole system in no time.
