“To individuate the parts, there is more individuality within a context of similar individualities. How can an affinity be recognized if not through the establishment of relationships? Networks provide an identity to the parts of the system. We are built, life is built, organized and selected in the rhythms of the system’s relationships.”
– Ángela Delgado (Networks, The Vital Principle)
