Why a series of primers?
These primers provide in depth coverage of the nested form constructs in the book: How to Define the Word “Religion”.
Primers 1 and 2 developed the category-based nested forms discussed in “the meaning underlying the word ‘religion’”.
The next several primer address “the presence underlying the word ‘religion’”. This presence can be appreciated through a fully differentiated model of “humans in our current Lebenswelt”. Humans exist in society. Humans organize. Human live as individuals in community. Each of these modes of existence relate to one another as a nested form:
Society( Organization( potential of Individual in Community))
Primer 3 diagrams the individual in community. Primers 4 and 5 present the organization tier. Primer 6 introduces the institution level of the society tier, starting with an example, the family. Primer 7 reviews How Institutions Think (1986) by British anthropologist Mary Douglas.

What is an Organization?

0001 The organization tierB emerges from and situates the individual in communityA.

Here is a diagram:

Organization and Human Evolution

0002 From the diagram, I can tell that I am already in trouble. Look, there is no third tier. According to the logic of the categories, an unidentified upper level tierC brings the organization tierB into relation with the potential of the individual in community (iic)A. The less apparent this unnamed upper tierC is, the more the organization tierB becomes ephemeral. The organization tierB will appear and disappear depending on whether or not there is an upper level tierC.

May I call the appearance order? May I call the disappearance chaos?

0003 Given this logic, I find it easy to imagine the unnamed upper tierC as a selection pressure in the course of human evolution. When it appeared, our ancestors organized. When it disappeared, our ancestors scattered. Surely, the former gives advantage. How do I know? I feel it in my bones. ‘The individual willing to cooperate’ was
