Constructural Law with Adrian Bejan
This is an extraordinary insight. What we are saying is that ordered systems act as sinks for imposed currents by improving their access. We leave out the actual physical nature of those currents and accept our ignorance does not predispose our understanding. Suddenly Chinese medicine has a creditable framework.
It also clarifies the evolutionary process as decision driven. A mouse tests a new environment, prospers and leave offspring. It has nothing to do with survival of the fittest. It has to do with right choices.
That also tells us that the collective acts to mediate personal choices for the same reason and why infestations must fail.
The controversy over evolutionary causation interfered with formalization for decades. This cleanly cures the problem. It may well close the topic.
