Life is an ongoing process of unfolding within a continuum of matter-cognition-semiotics. Evolutionary dynamics and biophysical forces exhibit end-directed (teleonomic) behavior. They increase interconnection over time, integrating antecedent foundational emergent layers into new aggregations — complete with their own forms, semiotics, and cognition — capable of better navigating the environment from which it emerged.

Our current technologies and systems, an outcome of these currents of aggregation and agency, are increasing capabilities to interconnect and integrate across abiotic, biotic, semiotic, and cognitive spheres, leading to strong emergence and enframing.
