emergent properties of a system allows for layers that communicate only sporatically if at all, having nearly independent systems at the interfaces and completely independent in the middles, bound of course at the edges but entirely free within.
Coin landing on edge situation but it only has to happen once for it to continue.
I’m mostly at peace with a layering situation that can be leaky or not.
You can have sporadic fluctuations that coalesce exhibiting behaviors that are not as random and tend towards “typicals”.
These typicals are a “reduction but not too reduced”.
Other error in thought I think may be considering such typicals as entities of their own without any construction.
sri sri’s got a point about falling into habits when stressed. Constraints upon a system can limit choices. But sometimes they can expose previously unseen choices because of the perspective shift.
