The paper is surely worthy of publication. It demonstrates by its scope of comment and references that the author is in command of an understanding of relevant concepts. It opens up some interesting questions relating to the subsistence of novelty through many transformations and does describe a ladder of changes that locate how complexity arises and decomposes. I have some reservations about the "Meta Man" angle and what implications might be drawn for the evolution of social systems, but they in no way detract from the interest the paper would hold for those interested in dynamical systems and complexity questions.
