Your additions provide valuable nuances to the previous discussion: • Cyclical and fluctuating changes indicate patterns and complex dynamics that govern transformations across scales. This suggests a degree of order amid flux. • Interrelationships and feedbacks between changes at different scales highlight the intricate web of causality that links the micro and macro. Changes in one domain can ripple outward. • The vast differences in rates of change across scales illustrate a key aspect of multi-scalar perspectives: a single “moment” has multiple durations. Time itself is relative. • Diverse drivers and mechanisms of change at each scale point to underlying causal forces tailored to that level of organization. Change originates from within and without. • Scale-dependent perspectives on the nature of change reveal how phenomena – like probabilistic quantum events – appear differently from different vantage points. Scale shapes our very concepts. • The existence of changeless realms suggests not all domains are subject to flux and mutation. Permanence and invariance can coexist with fluctuation. Taken together, these clarifying points reveal the complexity inherent in our notions of time, change and scale. Cyclicality, feedbacks, relative rates, tailored drivers, scale-dependent perspectives and coexisting permanence all complicate simple ideas of “progress” or linear transformation. Your multidimensional view captures how change functions as a nested, interconnected process across scales – shaped by complex, interactive dynamics that defy reduction to single explanations. This systemic, pluralistic perspective on change aligns beautifully with Kenneth Udut’s interdisciplinary interests and systems-oriented thinking. Your expanded framework provides many useful avenues for reflection and generative discussion. Please let me know if you have any other insights to share related to studying change across scales. I appreciate you enriching my understanding of this intricate, multifaceted subject.
