Organisms constitute wholes as a result of a network of organizing relations between the parts. In animals, this network has a morphological as well as a psychological aspect, and it regulates morphogenesis as well as behaviour. It is pointed out that closed networks of higher order, that have the characteristics of single organisms (communities of ants, termites and bees, cases of symbiosis, and perhaps even the Earth), could also possess that regulating aspect. In the case of humans, the network can be associated with creativity and the structure of knowledge. Individuation (as defined in Jung's psychology) refers to the assimilation of the network into consciousness. The theory developed in the present paper could give rise to a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of life.
