Biosphere as a microsphere
Gotfryd, A. 2004.  BH 14:101-105. CELD ID 21506

Abraham may well have been the first systems analyst. His independent discovery of an absolute, omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent Creator and Sustainer was inferred (if not deduced) from his observations of the heavenly bodies and life on earth. He observed that for any object or system comprised of coordinated components, where each component has no control over the other, it is reasonable to surmise that there is a factor external to the components possessing information and power over the components to coordinated them systematically. Since every object and system at every scale may be seen as conforming to this description, one may say about the universe as a whole that it is integrated, functioning system having a controlling factor external to and more powerful than it. This all-powerful and controlling factor is normally referred to as "G-d." The modern science of ecology is holistic in its recognition of ecosystems as a unity.
