oh lord this is beautiful already; fracture points / interfaces / gaps is one of the areas of my fascination, particularly stress on materials – tribology for one example; but I’d never looked in this direction down at this scale in biology; I hadn’t known there WAS research at this level of life.

This was a brilliant paragraph.
“An increasing number of organisms are subjected to abiotic (e.g., air, water, and soil quality, temperature), but also biotic (e.g., new pathogens) stressors. These stressors may disturb the chemical and physiological homeostasis of living systems, and thus impact their ecology and evolution. Because eukaryotes are often associated with symbionts, these changes do not only impact the host but rather the holobiont, an assemblage of interacting species. Indeed, stressors can modify the symbiotic community composition and functions directly, but also indirectly through their impact on host physiology. Any disruption of the symbiotic homeostasis can then impact the host fitness. On the other side, several symbionts protect their host against various threats, and they may facilitate the adaptation of the holobiont to the new environment by limiting the negative impact of stress on the host”
 Now, I’m not studied in political theory but searching for “tacit consent” comes up with this from Locke:
“Locke’s most obvious solution to this problem is his doctrine of tacit consent. Simply by walking along the highways of a country a person gives tacit consent to the government and agrees to obey it while living in its territory.”
So before moving fully up scales to civilizations and the future; is this the understanding I should have about tacit consent?

The Wikipedia authors are quite negative towards it; likely because it is currently in common use.
I’ll have to look more into it and its evolution; can’t know where we’re going until we know where we’ve beem
Ok. There is a very good chance I’ll find a model “out there” online somewhere as NetLogo has been used several times to model symbiotic systems apparently. I pulled these from a list, so hopefully one of them has an available model that’s similar to your needs.
