" The process of protein folding is like rolling a ball from the top of the
funnel to the bottom. The funnel-shaped free energy landscape predict that
the protein folding is a parallel event rather than a sequential event."
Eventually it finds its lowest energy state at the bottom of the funnel, but the process is not a direct path.
