Good you bring up bridges. They used to be simple, a plank between 2 points, but now they are hugely complex structures and they need to be corrected from time to time to factor in complex interdependencies that arise ( see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium_Bridge_(London) )

As systems get more and more complex they need to be corrected more and more often and sometimes they break down for no clear reason. It's true for other complex systems too : like the human mind, society, superstructures, ... All can break down if corrections are not applied in time.
