The orders are passed down the hierarchy. The loops that sustain reality have a downward direction. The whole takes precedence over the parts.
"Chaotic logic", Ben Goertzel,Chapter Three, THE STRUCTURE OF THOUGHT, 3.1. THE PERCEPTUAL-MOTOR HIERARCHY, 3.1.1. Perception, p.28.
"That orders are passed down the perceptual hierarchy was one of the biggest insights of the Gestalt psychologists. Their experiments (Kohler, 1975) showed that we look for certain configurations in our visual input. We look for those objects that we expect to see, and we look for those shapes that we are used to seeing. If a level 5 process corresponds to an expected object, then it will tell its children to look for the parts corresponding to that object, and its children will tell their children to look for the complex geometrical forms making up the parts to which they refer, et cetera."
..that orders are passed down the perceptual hierarchy .. unsavoury .. hard to swallow .. but can not escape .. however .. we are talking about loops .. and what we see ..is the direction these loops take .. from top to bottom .. therefore ..passed down ..
.. one can explain that necessity .. as what matters .. is the unit .. the whole .. that has emerged .. that takes priority .. over the parts ..it is made out of ..
.. taken as an example ..it is the survival ..of the human individual .. that matters .. that is what takes precedence before or else .. and its gestalt attribute evolved out of this ..
if it is out-with the parameters .. imposed by .. assigned to .. the parts themselves .. the children .. the subsidiaries ..
a breakdown ..of the unit .. of the whole .. the whole is unsustainable beyond the limits of its parts .. it is the sole and unequivocal master within the realm it resides .. and to that effect its parts should play their role .. to confer the integrity required .. necessary and sufficient .. but not beyond what the parts can afford .. what impacts the parts .. the subsidiaries very own survival ..
computation .. time-dependency .. the shortest time possible .. parts enabled .. the subroutines engaged computation ..
