A system with high action efficiency allows the system to grow in quantity of action. Therefore the total amount of action was found to be in a positive feedback with the organization of the system, as more time and energy are necessary to achieve further constraint minimization and action efficiency.
For biological systems and processes it is challenging to measure the physical quantity of action. Therefore, to expand the applicability of our theory and to make it more widely usable for the scientific community, we hope to find other correlated characteristic measures that can be used to derive the more fundamental ones.
