There is no one master control component in the Noema. Rather a decision is accomplished by exerting influence and building local majority. Consensus is not necessary and seldom is a global majority reached. See [Ell77] for algorithms on distributed vote counting.
The control of the system is by indicators, governors, and trend setting. An indicator measures the health of the Noema while a governor nudges the Noema in a particular direction. Trend setting provides long term strategies.
These indicators influence the distributed decision process.
