Summary: In forming a big organisation the process must be (1) to list the main* variables, (2) to attempt stability by the same number of completely independent
commutive systems, (3) with variables which refuse to get stable, add small joins,
letting them be few in number and simple in type (i.e. step-functions). [* Now called 'essential', not 'main'.]
Society : In forming any social system the joins should be minimal, 1905.
