What does "Holonix" mean?

The name Holonix comes from Holon

“Holon” is a term coined by Arthur Koestler in 1968. In the theory of nonlinear systems, the holon is a part of a complex system with its own individuality, but at the same time it is also an integrated part of a higher-order system.

The holon is composed of other subsystems, which are usually holons themselves. For example, each human being is a single individual who is part of a social community. In turn, the human being is made up of cells, each individually different from the others, which are holons themselves.

  • They are part of a stratified order
  • Their interaction is significantly different from their individual behavior (the whole is either greater or lesser than the sum of its parts)
  • Each holon is an integral part of the higher-order “whole”, while still asserting its own individual nature (society and nations, individual and society, cell and living being).
