Causality/explanation/Bieri: if we build it purely physiologically, we know how to continue it, that is, always becoming smaller.

Explanation/Bieri: always means revealing a certain kind of relationship._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
