"The interplay of assumptions in your brain and in your creative process is what we call an embedded hierarchy." #readingToday
The interplay of assumptions in your brain and in your creative process is what we call an embedded hierarchy. They are like your body. Your body is made up of organs, your organs are made of cells, your cells are made up of organelles (the organs of your cells), your organelles are made up of molecules, and so on. In essence, a society is nothing other than the changing density of the molecular elements that make us all up. Each is just an attractor state within a larger system, like waves rising on the sea before crashing on the shore, or transient whirlpools on a fast-flowing river. The lower and more foundational the assumption, the more its change can affect the rest of the system, since the hierarchy builds off of it. So, the right question—though small—can cause a person, an invention, an idea, an institution, or even a whole culture to change (hopefully for the better, but not always).
