MACHINE (Social) 2)4)
This concept is discussed by J.L. VULLIERME, who states that: "If one day really thinking artificial machines should appear, they will necessarily be socialized machines, able to communicate with other machines, in order to construct their own references, through cross referencing with others" (1990, p.153).
This emphasizes emergence through interacting combinatorics, i.e. networking, which seems to be the very basic bedrock of social efficiency.
It could be said that any society, of any kind, is somehow similar to a connection machine.
