now, i’m beginning to think the best way to describe an open system is one in which the context is not part of it. it’s literally an index of objects. in an open system, those objects are not really tied together. or rather, there is no requirement that they be tied together into any context. in order words, this object does not necessarily go ‘next to’ this object. that is determined by anyone who builds with these objects.
