Over its 4. 6 billion year history, the time-dependent behavior of planet Earth, from the origin and emergence of life to the explosive globalization of human culture today, shows the progressive and accelerating production of increasingly more highly ordered dynamic states. Understanding our place as both productions and producers in this rapidly accelerating global becoming is a requisite step to the meaningful grounding of virtually every other discipline, most particularly those disciplines relating to the endeavors and activities of humans themselves. Recent advances in the study of spontaneous ordering provide both a minimal ontological framework required for causally addressing such systems, and the nomological basis for understanding the ubiquitous or universal generic nature of such ordering itself. This paper briefly outlines the main points.
