Self-organization grows out of questions asked and answered across an expanding boundary. The boundary starts at (or just after) a kind of nearly coherent singularity. As energy and information cross the boundary, it changes, and subsequently reacts in an ever more complex way with the WIBWI or the ever changing, Implicit Order (the all-inclusive set/ever-educated/complemented by the Explicit (the WI)).
My philosophy is relational. IT grew out of my thought processes about my journal-published research involving a self-organizing expanding system, not unlike the expanding boundary of our universe. Much of the changes of a boundary’s shape/potential, due to energy/information crossing it, can be characterized using the full Energy Equation and statistical mechanics.
