Social organization: The thermodynamic basis

Constructal Law brings social organization under the big tent of physics

Fig_agrregatesDirection of evolution of humans aggregates and technology in the Economics of ScaleIn view of the complexity and diversity of contemporary social organization, why do individuals came to live (to move) together, to organize themselves in the first place ? Constructal law shows that social organization is a natural phenomenon rooted in the physics of economies of scale. It is a reflection of the physics reality (bio and nonbio) that it is easier to move 1 unit of mass in bulk than to move 1 unit individually. This discovery is the connection between physics and social organization, which brings social organization under the big tent of physics.

The new theoretical framework also reveals the physical meaning of innovation: It is a local design change that liberates the flow over the entire territory inhabited by the organized movers.
