• Orthogonality is a form of designed independence. The constituent elements or dimensions are intentionally decoupled to be independent and interchangeable.

• Orthogonality enables composability – the ability to combine elements in novel ways without interference. This potential for recombination underpins abstraction and emergence.

• However, perfect orthogonality is an ideal. In practice, most systems exhibit some interactions or interdependencies between supposedly “orthogonal” elements. But by orienting towards orthogonality as an aim, complexity can be managed.

• Seeking orthogonality often reveals insight into the fundamental dimensions of a system. It helps cut through complexity by identifying the core components that can vary independently.
