The dynamics of development of an organism or organization from its autogenesis to the irreversible development of its basic processes and structures.
This concept can be translated in a more or less analogic way from biology into systemics: any new social system, as for instance a new business, or institutional organization, or a new nation undergoes this type of original structural and functional development until it reaches a viable state. The latter is precisely characterized by a more or less complete dynamic stabilization of the critical interrelations between the parts of the new system.
