Organism and ecology are codetermined

Bees see ultraviolet and plants are distinguishable in ultraviolet, which one came the first? East Asian cultures exhibit conformity and rice plantations require massive communal coordination, which one came first? Natural drift theory argues that entire ecologies evolve through a tight structural coupling, an intimate codetermination process, involving multiple entities at multiple levels of abstraction. Through satisficing in selectionism, various ragged evolutionary trajectories mutually inform each other in a recurrent fashion.
