Upshot: Autonomous systems cannot be pre-specified or pre-programmed, but enact themselves based on history, sociality and internal fragmentation. History entails nonlinear, circularly causal process; sociality entails topological differentiation; fragmentation entails downward selection. Reciprocal causation-selection is the single architecture that satisfies these requirements: structure determines topologically extended flow, which reciprocally selects structure.
