oh dear. im getting deep into unknown territories https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conatus “effort; endeavor; impulse, inclination, tendency; undertaking; striving”) is an innate inclination of a thing to continue to exist and enhance itself.
Today, conatus is rarely used in the technical sense, since modern physics uses concepts such as inertia and conservation of momentum that have superseded it
Systems theory The Spinozistic conception of a conatus was a historical precursor to modern theories of autopoiesis in biological systems. AUTOPOIESIS now _that’s something I can link into – oh crop there be lightning. back inside.
