The system, however, is not normally alone. We must therefore consider how constructions are affected and influenced by those of others.

The physics of non-equilibrium of the 1970s–1980s expressed similar ideas in talking of irreversibility of the ‘time arrow’: see Prigogine (1985a) and (1985b). Luhmann (2000), p. 141.

Regardless of the time construction of others, with their presents and futures, memories and projects, we all share the same present.
