Individuation, therefore, precedes the individual. Simondon argues that the simple model of crystallization may be used to understand the process of individuation throughout physical and biological systems.

The main trait of n-Natures rests on the fusion of the deterministic nature of the mathematical function, the empirical information regarding the unique geometry of the gallery space, and the physical requirements of the tensile material system.
