Properties of systems We observe that everyone is different communicatively from everyone else. The uniqueness of the individual is expressed in terms of postulated properties of the systems that model them. Properties are set up on the basis of observed real-world communicative similarities and differences of persons and assemblages. They may be taken as binary variables without loss of generality. These properties can be represented here as: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTU... where the underlined properties will figure in the discussion below concerning how properties change.

Historical change is understood as changes at the linkage level originating in changes at the individual level. 6. How are properties structured?
