 Break and delay Summary: If a field should alter its organisation, and particularly its dominances and independences, reversibly when a variable exceeds a given value, we may either look on it in this way, or (preferably) we may set up new and more comprehensive field equations treating it as one constant organisation. But see 1038 for a much improved statement.Adaptation by breakBreak theory 0965 0966

 Summary: A carefully calculated field is given, with four neutral points. Useful for experimenting. (Others are on 817, 828, 839, 885, 941, 990, 1021)Break exampleBreak surface interaction of 1025 1026
 Summary: A much better statement is given of the idea of varying patterns of dominance etc in a system. Summary: "Break" does not involve "irreversibility".Break definitionDominance varyingReversible process breaks 1037 1038

 Summary: The idea that "orderliness" or "intelligence" spreads like crystallisation is probably covered more correctly by the more precise idea that it is "reaching neutral point and stopping still" which spreads along a chain of dominance.Break equations forDominance chain ofEquilibrium spread ofOrganisation spread ofStep function in differential equations 1047 1048
 Summary: Differential equations with step-functions are fundamentally unsolvable.Adaptation by breakBreak and adaptation 1051 1052
 Summary: The concept of "breaks" by itself is not sufficient to cause any emergence of adaptation or intelligence. Brain, i.e. a machine of particular type, is necessary. (See 1063)Adaptation brain necessaryBrain necessaryIntelligence brain necessary Break in machineOrganisation in machinery, examples Society [12]: Organisation has two complexities: number of variables and number of parameters, 0984. In man-made machines, 1054. 1053 1054
 Summary: The idea of a system, like the brain, altering its own organisation necessarily implies the presence of step-functions and breaks.Break to change organisationOrganisation self change = break 1057 1058
 Adaptation by breakBrain essentials ofBreak and adaptation Summary: Although a general system has no tendency to survival by adaptive behaviour, yet a "brain" has. Details are given. (see 1068)Organisation two meanings united 1063 1064
 Summary: Formulae are given in the special case where one variable always moves towards some function of the other variables.Operator special Adaptation by breakBreak and adaptation 1067 1068

 Summary: The question of "dominance" is still further clarified. I define "immediate", "distant" and "ultimate" dependance. Also "completed matrix of an organisation". "Dominance" (two equivalent definitions). "Parameter" is defined as "dominant and constant". It is proved that if a dominates b, and b dominates c, then a dominates c.

 Summary: If an organisation stops at a field which is only partly stable this does not really matter; for if the danger of breaking is large, it will soon break and try new fields, while if the danger is small then there is little to worry about.Break number ofOrganisation number of 1139 1140
