Summary: If a field should alter its organisation, and particularly its dominances and independences,
reversibly when a variable exceeds a given value, we may either look on it in this way, or (preferably)
we may set up new and more comprehensive field equations treating it as one constant
organisation. But see 1038 for a much improved statement. Adaptation by break Break theory
Summary: The idea that "orderliness" or "intelligence" spreads like crystallisation is probably
covered more correctly by the more precise idea that it is "reaching neutral point
and stopping still" which spreads along a chain of dominance. Break equations for Dominance chain of Equilibrium spread of Organisation spread of Step function in differential equations
Summary: Differential equations with step-functions are fundamentally unsolvable. Adaptation by break Break and adaptation
Summary: The concept of "breaks" by itself is not sufficient to cause any emergence of adaptation
or intelligence. Brain, i.e. a machine of particular type, is necessary. (See 1063) Adaptation brain necessary Brain necessary Intelligence brain necessary
Summary: The idea of a system, like the brain, altering its own organisation necessarily implies
the presence of step-functions and breaks. Break to change organisation Organisation self change = break
Summary: The question of "dominance" is still further clarified. I define "immediate", "distant"
and "ultimate" dependance. Also "completed matrix of an organisation". "Dominance"
(two equivalent definitions). "Parameter" is defined as "dominant and constant". It
is proved that if a dominates b, and b dominates c, then a dominates c.
Summary: If an organisation stops at a field which is only partly stable this does not really
matter; for if the danger of breaking is large, it will soon break and try new fields,
while if the danger is small then there is little to worry about. Break number of Organisation number of
