In terminology, social (TR=1181), from the Latin socius ‘companion’, ‘ally’, ‘associate’, refers to aggregation (see: sociology terminology upgrades) or states or behaviors of aggregation, tending to be used in reference to two or more arrangements of powered CHNOPS+ geometries, often in the form of systems, e.g. as in a social system, or interactions, as in social interaction.

The following are related quotes:

“Do not social exemplifications of physical principles have some value for somebody? And is not this value to be found in their heuristic and pedagogical suggestions? In other words, can such social exemplifications of physical principles illuminate our understanding of the principles themselves and lead us to ask more intelligent questions about them? Can they possess pedagogical value for those striving to understand physics without the intention of becoming physicists or even scientists of any sort? Affirmative answers to these questions will justify attention to the social examples even if their actual use in the development of the social theories is questionable. It is the purpose of the present essay to suggest that such social exemplifications of physical principles do indeed often have heuristic and pedagogical value. We begin with the principles of thermodynamics, a fruitful source of social examples.”
