The Environment

Welcome to the physical world and to life in general, ranging in scale from the wild to the civilized.

The Environment is the remainder of the universe that lies outside the boundaries of the system. Here, living and non-living things interact naturally and information is exchanged. The interaction may not imply equality of social status, nevertheless, they develop a sense of solidarity; they trust and help one another. They tend to think in similar styles and patterns even when their conclusions differ. It may have the look, feel and quality of natural surroundings, but The Environment is a completely composed illusion.
