Think of the program like a workplace.

Sending out a memo for a price change is easy. You can do that during a workday. That is what it is like to change a simple setting.

However, asking all employees to change their uniform to a different one would require a significant logistics planning to perform while everyone is at work. It would require changing rooms, and rotating employees in. Unless you are fine with your business entirely pausing (program freezing) while everyone changes.

It is simpler in the second example to just send employees home with a note to come dressed differently tomorrow. Especially if the dress code rarely changes.

The clothes are the different variables/functions/resources that would need to be loaded to change an integral setting.
