Constitutive absence

Continuing this post, Deacon argues in this article "that the key to understanding emergent phenomena is to understand organization in terms of what is not included, not realized, not present – a property he describes as 'constitutive absence.' […] Everything that has emerged is the result of a hierarchy of constraints – speciļ¬c forms  of absence that give rise to further, even more complex forms of absence."
