But if there will be anyway piece of dirt in the jar why not simulate
that piece of dirt and not each individual worm?

I think, it is better to group such piles of entities and simulate
parent object instead. Like, we are not simulating each individual acorn
on oak and even don’t have individual acorn entities for those that are
still growing on the tree.
