It will be so "conceptually" in any adiabatic simulation, where the
energy is conserved. Which does not imply that the molecule is
Keep in mind an energetic landscape: the conformations explored by the
protein (that may adjust to an enormous conformational space), are
located in an isoenergetic contour.
