The history of an environmental system revolves around its components, and the conception of these local systems within a larger network comprises the spatiotemporal extensiveness of reality and the systems of reality. The valuation of the physical object and the mental schema stresses the rational, grounded, and inherent connections of the objective reality. Both the “physical pole” and the “mental pole” manifest a two-way causality property. Local systems have their own coordinates that define their individual histories, which are expansively intertwined with one another; that is to say, they are spatiotemporally coordinated, with a shared larger historical environment. The speed of transmutation of the local systems in composing a shared group of systems is a function of spatial and temporal relativism. Examples are provided in this section to elaborate the historical ordering of events, restricted durations, and relativity theory. The relations in societies of enduring objects and complex historical environments are made possible, taking into account the approximations and differences in individual histories.
