Definitions for "competition"
Because each plant only forms a finite number of nodules, the ability of indigenous rhizobia to form nodules will limit the number produced by inoculant strains. This can limit nitrogen fixation, and in the American Midwest can mean that the plant derives less than 50% of its nitrogen from symbiosis. While this is generally seen as a competition between inoculant and indigenous rhizobia, various factors play a role. These include the great numerical superiority of the indigenous rhizobia in the bulk soil, and the limited mobility of the inoculant rhizobia. It is also assumed that indigenous rhizobia are also better adapted to soil conditions.

Competition: again stems from physical body identification for why would the Eternal Self compete against the Eternal Self who share the same identity? Would your left arm compete against your right leg! This is how absurd competition is between people, as God would see it. Why would God compete against God to realize God? Nothing else exists but God. The negative ego is a fictitious identity that does not really even exist. As the Master Jesus said, “The greatest among you is the servant of all!” In God's Eyes he who wins at the expense of another loses and he who loses from the negative ego's perspective wins.
