This paper represents one part of a larger research project into the philosophy and science of structure which I’ve been pursuing for the last 4 years. This paper has been re-written numerous times over the last couple years and has been subject to a lot of fine-tuning, though I recognize that some of the arguments still require significant work. Any feedback or questions are most welcome.
