The Seventh Law states that morphogenetic field vectors may be bundled/bunched or dilated/herniated in a geometrically regular fashion to generate compound eyes or other torologous traits. The influence of the Seventh Law is very ancient, for example, it may be observed in the pre‑Cambrian chiton Clementechiton sonorensis. The occurrence of the seven laws implies that we exist in a law‑governed universe, where the operation of laws of morphogenetic evolution leads to repeated and predictable outcomes in the history of life.
