A meandering path connecting evolutions steps

Every step along the path of particle evolution, shown as a blue line, has enriched the universe with new and more complex particles. The 'blue path' introduces the operator hierarchy which is discussed in more detail in the next section.

The blue path connects the superstrings, the quark-gluon plasma, the quark confinement, the hadrons, the nuclear hypercycle, the electron shell, the atoms, the molecules, the catalytic hypercycle, the cell membrane and the cell.

Then the path divides. The lower branch runs towards the prokaryotic unicellulars, where it ends (at least on earth). The upper branch runs via eukaryotic unicellulars and CALM hypercycles to the sensory interface, to finally reach the memon.
