I am just an observer, and this is what I have seen.
Before my becoming, yours, everyone's, and the people from before, a natural system of systems or operations was all but what it was: the settling
and erosion of parent material or the foundation that we walk on.
At some point, a few operations including lifeforms in the natural system shifted and the people before us experienced this shift, bringing us to
where we are today.
They observed these natural systems surrounding them. They developed relationships with them and created their own system of systems (for example:
fire, water, dirt, and air observed from volcanoes, rain, shelter, and sound).
The people before us, together they spent some time developing their systems to the point where their system enabled them to control products (stone
tools, fire) of the natural systems and themselves (social behavior, symbolism, kinship, mana, funerary rituals).
The people before us developed their systems to the point that enabled their system to control and breed other lifeforms (agriculture) and
themselves (government, god(s) in full force or cosmology, taxation, economy, and caste systems). The abstract system of systems is its own and most
people and resources have been integrated and operate within it
Where does it go from here?
Will we, and/or the people after, experience a reintegration within the natural system of systems? Has the abstract system of systems produced the
destruction of systems within the natural system?
