Major Material Complexity Level 6: A Family System: Hyperland System
Example: Bee Colony
Hyperland as a "physical entity" is the connectness of life in life on land: from the ants, bees, flocks of birds, cattle, dogs, coyotes, mankind and his buildings and tools. This Vernadskian-Margulian view, living matter and its products has extended the life on land (Hypersea) over life and non-life of the Earth as a dynamic functional structure. Bringing carbohydrates, proteins, nuclei acids and a mobile throbbing to the rich-barren, limited mobility of life on land, Hypersea.
