## A New Level in the Meta-Hierarchy of Semiotic Interpretance Emerges Iff a New Level Emerges in the Scale-Hierarchy of Dynamical Organization

## A New Intermediate Level N Organizes the Topological Variety of Level N-1 as Typological Meaning for Level N+1, or the Typological Variety of Level N-1 as Topological Meaning for Level N+1

So here, in summary, are the two principles I would offer as, respectively, weaker and stronger hypotheses about the development, emergence, and evolution of semiotic processes in complex, hierarchical, infodynamic systems.

The first one I would be fairly sure of, and any exceptions would at least be of interest for the light they would shed on our definitions of the terms involved.

The second one is a very strong hypothesis, strong enough perhaps to guide research and theory for particular cases in interesting directions, even if it may not tell us the whole story of these fundamental processes.
