Architecture and Planning ETDs
We have a direct correlation between the complexity of the organism, the complexity of the structure and the complexity of the social structure. This is to say that there exists an inverse function between the complexity of the living organism and the simplification and sublimation of the structure in which that organism lives. We are getting more and more specialized, but as the technology advances, we get to the point where the person or organism that does nothing becomes much more important, purely and simply so that there is some reason to produce. And if the quantity of that organism goes up, we start something that says that the more complex we become, actually the simpler we become, because we've got less and less to do.
