if everything is network....then everything is connected ...if everything is connected then everything can influence everything (ed. something)...if everything can influence everything then everything is somehow organized.....

can you follow ? :)



What i wanted to say with that my post is:
The fact is everything is connected to something...
I think when we look one component for example earth we can call it system and there are no isolated parts... whatever it is defined or called...even each gray stone has its environment and it is connected with for example earth :)

there might be disconnected components or even isolated nodes....so not everything is able to influence everything....

might be ... it depends how you look on that ... if you need you can look on something like on isolated component, if you need you can look as on system...
but in real world i believe there is no system which has no external environment... and besides every view is subjective!
Also in a system there are no isolated nodes :) In fact if we view some specific node - other nodes at the same abstraction level (and level is chosen by expert) are external environment for this one node...
True - each node do not influence any other...
"if everything is connected then everything can influence everything"
should be written like :
"if everything is connected then everything can (this is the key word ;)) influence something" :) which is not in conflict to definition "organized"
Still wherever you look you can find the way how to see connection...no matter of the connection type... no matter of representation way...if only you have appropriate skills, knowledge, techniques to see the similarities, differences ...
if we do not see (seeing is important aspect here ;)) connection we say "disorder"... when we got ability to see we say "order" ... but still the viewed object do not change.... :)
So everything is relative, subjective and change in time :) It makes life complex isn't it ? :)

...humans tend to see and observe patterns (organizations) where none of those are existent.....this wish to see structures is reasonable because it gives us sense...but this does not mean that there is sense.

True...
But.... any term and its meaning we use is given by humans...
If it gives sense... it means we know how its works...isn't that already much for us ?
At the same time there are many things that probably has no sense but still it doesn't make them meaningless...
