From complexity theory we review the contributions from Lorenz (1963), Thom (1977), Nicolis and Prigogine (2007), Prigogine and Stengers (2002), Bonabeau, Dorigo, and Theraulaz (1999), Watts (2006); from complex adaptive systems we take insights from Gell-Mann (1994, 1995) and Holland (1992, 1995, 1998); and we follow Ashby (1962, 1964), Von Foerster (1981) and Beer (1981, 1988) from the cybernetics tradition.

Pero la division no se detiene alli: en 1964, el fisico estadounidense Murray Gell-Mann propone un modelo segun el cual protones y neutrones estarian compuestos de dos tipos de "quarks", "up" y "down" (los calificativos de estas particulas, que escapan por su naturaleza a toda representacion sensible, son el fruto de la imaginacion de los investigadores: se habla por ejemplo, de particulas "coloreadas", aunque no tienen ningun color "visible").
