wedge 5. Semiotic Function Circle (forming structures in ecosystems: ExtrO, ExtrA, IntrO, IntrA)
wedge 6. Affinity and Anaformation (conditions and effects of co-evolutive semionic structures)
wedge 7. Culturality (ExtrA structures common to members of a group related to their IntrA structures)
wedge 8. Personhood (IntrA structures related to common ExtrA structures)
wedge 9. Secondarization (Anaformations of Anaformations; IntrA- and ExtrA-Secondary Systems)
wedge 10. Communication (Influence mediated by intermediate environmental structures)
wedge 11. Temporality (present interactions building past line from tree of possible courses)
wedge 12. Methodology (scientific anaformations: possible evolutive paths under specified conditions)
wedge 13. Horizons (Structure formation can and should be understood on several levels)
wedge 14. Comparison (as semiotic procedure)
wedge 15. Autonomisation and Integration (all structures both apart from and part of other structures)
