Stephen, all ...

My systems engineering professors taught me that systems
are concrete artifacts that systems engineers engineer.

How many systems will systems engineers engineer
when systems engineers engineer systems?

IDK, depends on whether they're intelligent systems engineers.

A system could be real in the Peirce sense that what it does is independent
of what we think. I am tempted to say nothing is just anything. Everything
is something. A weather system is real. A system for determining wins and
losses is real. This post is real. One could say everything is an
abstraction and that would not affect all that occurs regardless.
