-|  "Complete" Autonomy  | Does no exist: All life and intelligence relies on other systems to some extent. Autonomy is usually a relative term applied to a particular limited set of dimension for two systems that are being compared (or the same system at two different times or two different states).       |+|  "Complete" Autonomy | Life and intelligence rely on other systems to some extent. The concept is usually applied in a relative way, for a particular limited set of dimension when systems are compared, as well as same system at two different times or in two different states.       |
