Parent Node: Dimensions of Self and Reality


Subsystem, Part, Subindividual

Just as the Individual is a microcosm of the universe, so according to the holarchical paradigm, it is also a macrocosm, consisting of smaller elements. These, the Subsystems or Parts, are holons beneath the level of the individual. Here we have again a near infinite number of possible ranks, subdivisions, etc (in the human physical body holon we would say organs, tissues, cells, molocules, atoms, etc)
