Dear LO' ers

There are too many interesting topics on this list. And after a two week
trouble with the Internet connection to the provider, the avalanch of
contributions is so great that there are still lots of unread mails. So,
my apologies for not being active for quite a while.

The question of the subject header that I put forward some months ago, has
echoed in my mind too.

The only answer I can give is this:
To help keeping the internal organistation as high as possible. So the
amount of free energy to spend is the highest.

The next question however, that came in my mind is:

Is it necessary that a leader is a person?

And now my answer is no. If a leader is some sort of organising force
(which I thus believe) then leadership could very well come from a
testemony, concept, or principle (such as 'democracy').

Thus, leadership is inward oriented. Free energy and entropy production
will cause the outward oriented (irreversal) emergences.
