System vs. Matrix
System = items all are interconnected; the range of possible variations in the state of any item is thereby kept within certain limits imposed by the network of dependencies in which it is entangled. As long as such limits are observed, the system is in equilibrium…. In its essence, systemness is the way to subordinate the freedom of the elements to the ‘pattern maintenance’ of the totality.-�in order to meet the criteria of systemness the set of items needs to be circumscribed---must have boundaries. One cannot speak of system unless it is always possible to decide which item belongs to system and which is outside. Systems resent grey areas and no-man’s lands. … uncontrolled border passages are equal to the collapse of the system.

Matrix:
