In fact, the notion of morphism in the category of logic systems being employed is the key to create or to block interactions.

From the categorial point of view, the process is the same as for algebraic fibring, the only difference being that the notion of morphism is stronger.

Hence a preordered set is a category in which there is at most one morphism between any two objects.

On the other hand, suppose a category of logic systems in which the preservation of rules such as (*) or (**) above is required by the very notion of morphism.

Ellipses in phase space — curves of constant energy — then become isomorphism classes, because the oscillator motion is periodic, and for any A and B connected by a morphism, you can find another time evolution which takes B back into A.

Man, according to Spinoza, believes that everything (God, nature, man himself) acts through final causes (ends, purposes) be  cause he does not know the true causes and refers all natural phenomena to himself; that is, as if nature were directed to man's benefit (anthropocentrism) by God, who is imagined to be a sort of superman (anthropo  morphism).

We have stated above that, in a spatial setting, an impression of symmetry arises if a design is not changed by a group of automorphisms of the space, and we add to this that, as far as design is concerned, the underlying space is a setting for it, and any auto  morphism of the space is a certain change of this setting.

Symbolism in poetry is animism, anthropo  morphism, inspired by the truth that the universe, nature and spirit must be one at their roots.
