The proteins, in Complex Adaptive Systems and Spontaneous Emergence 27 turn, have substructures such as alpha-helices and beta-sheets that determine their three dimensional structure. From there we go to small interacting groups of proteins, such as the Krebs cycle, on to building blocks for membranes and tubules, to organelles, and on up through the hierarchy of living organisms. If we turn from organisms to artefacts, we see that most major innovations in science and technology amount to new combinations of old building blocks.
