Heredity is the preservation of structure in a historical series of unities. Feb 27, Michael rated it really liked it. Maturana, along with Francisco Varela and Ricardo B.

Copy creation from a mold is historical if iterated. This describes an entirely new direction in understanding living symmetries and relational hypersystems.

Different observers and even the same observer at different times with different goals will have different domains of interactions and will zrvore a unity in a different way.
