In this essay I'd like to formulate some brainstormed ideas
about quantification of order as imposed by autopoietic systems. Any
contribution to develop these ideas further and to brainstorm with me is
welcome.

I would like to integrate the information on emergence,
self-organisation, teleology and autopoiesis:

Entropy is not a good measure of order/chaos when it comes
to autopoietic, self-organising systems (e.g. living systems), which can
replicate.

Each level has its own

**ordering capacity**contribution, its own**resonance**, which must be multiplied by the number of entities in the level to get to the total ordering capacity.__recruiting__frequency
The order of a system is not simply its information-wise
statistical orderly spread in an n-dimensional grid, but also should entail the
capacity to autocatalytically regenerate itself, its meme-spreading capacity,
its "virality/infectivity" or proliferability.

As far as I know there are not many theories describing the
virality/diffusion speed of meme spreading.

Autopoietic systems exist in a hierarchy of levels, where
the number of autopoietic entities encompassed by the level above increases
when going to higher levels. An example from the lowest physical systems up to
"living" systems that we know of:
