These considerations, as well as the molecular evidence, show that arborescence does not represent the ancestral life form in monocots.
Such a tactical level DDSN is not only effective and efficient, but also both resilient and adaptive, enabling a rapid transition away from the traditional hierarchical arborescence structure, which required mountains of iron necessary to buffer uncertainty, inefficiencies, and rigidity toward an adaptive network design consistent with sense and respond logistics.
Symbolically, I have decided to code the trunk as the infrastructure of the government's entrenched privilege: those mediating discourses of official policy, centralized governmental power, and global capitalism that undergird and undermine any true attempt at moving from a hierarchical arborescence, to a rhizomatic bioregionalism that truly embraces and fosters diversity.
