There are few important conclusions which may derive from the above-mentioned facts:
The number of the hierarchical structure levels of the abiotic matter, accepted by the scientists, depend on the knowledge amount accumulated at a certain moment;
The systems with the lowest organization level (the most simple) at a certain level of the general knowledge, are called “elementary” or “fundamentals”. They are constitutive parts of all the systems with a superior structure (making-up the generating set of all these systems).
The order of magnitude (see annex X.1) of the spatial dimensions of EP systems is about 10-14 m, and of GX system is approx. 1021 m. Therefore, the abiotic matter organization within systems is maintained along an interval of over 35 orders of magnitude of the spatial dimensions. We must also take into account that the systemic matter organization was not known in the ancient times as we know it nowadays, but this does not mean that it did not actually exist. These findings give us the right to assert that:
There is no logical argument able to contest the existence of the systemic organization of the abiotic matter beyond the limits of the human knowledge accumulated at a certain moment.
The boundaries of this organization depend only on the cognition degree reached at that moment.
As a corrolary of the above mentioned statements, we may release the following one:
Comment 1.3.1: As we are about to see later in this book, the matter (or more exactly, the material systems class) is divided in three large subclasses: - abiotic systems (natural), biotic systems and artificial systems. According to the aforementioned issues, some elements of the abiotic class hierarchy (such as the atoms) make-up the generating set also for the other two classes of material systems. SOP is unconditionally valid (according to the objectual philosophy) in case of the class of the natural abiotic systems, fact which results from the model of this kind of system, model which shall be analyzed in section 7. As for the classes of biotic and artificial systems, although they are also material systems, there are some properties which restrict their divisibility range; in case of such systems, there are basic elements which cannot be decomposed any more without loosing the class features, despite of the high cognition level. But these elements are further decomposed as an abiotic support of the biotic or artificial systems. For the attentive and detail-oriented reader, an apparent contradiction might arise between SOP and the division way of the abiotic MS in elements which make-up systems and the free ones, division which was used at the beginning of paragr. 1.2. There is indeed a fraction of MS which does not belong to many forms of organization from the above mentioned hierarchy, although there is always an organization structure which shall also include them. For example, the fractions belonging to free EP, unbound within the nucleus, atoms, media, may be part of an inter-planetary, inter-galactic medium, and they shall be compulsorily part of our universe, which is also a MS. The set of the free living cells (unbound into the multicellular organisms) shall be ultimately part of the planetary biosphere, the biggest bio-system known so far. If the first version of SOP (version a) has a generality level which depends on MS class (as it was above mentioned in this comment), the version b of SOP is universally-valid and it is one of the basic principles of this paper.
