The mechanism of optimization is a different perspective. It is only interested in the question “how does the information get into the object?”

Via selection, a criterion chooses the systems corresponding best to it. See Fig. on pg. [*]

Via orientation, the system directly gains information from the environment. Here we have to differentiate according to the quality of information reception/assimilation. The quality of the sensors is a significant influential factor in this case. See Fig. on pg. [*]

The higher level of orientation uses information condensed in a model. The system is able to extrapolate beyond known conditions.
