Local/Global/Self-organization/Technology/Kauffman: Local rules create global order.

Until the evolution of rational human technology, the rules run from local to global, then the direction is reversed._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
