1. The sequence of the organisation levels is regarded as originating from a sequence of symmetry breakings. Each breaking generates a more improbable structure. In addition to the Euclidian symmetries, homogeneity, isotropy, translation, rotation, helix displacement, neutrality and even indiscernibility can be broken. Here are considered the initial (§ 2) and the subatomic breaking molecular morphogenesis (§ 3, 4) and other higher breakings.2.1 HOMOGENEITY BREAKING OF THE VACUUM SPACE. We studied this as a new model of wave-corpuscle relation. Every noticeable point breaks the space homogeneity. Directed by a momentum this breaking operates as a fissure.2. Postulate of the corpuscle. The quantum mechanical corpuscle is the end of a fissure, the momentum of which characterises direction and velocity.2.2. Postulate of the wave. The associate wave comes from the end of the fissure and works to split the medium.2.3. Corollary to the trajectory. The fissure prefers continuity and a straight line. Nevertheless the fissure can stop at a point and then start from an other point. This discontinuity and any momentum possible discontinuity are limited only by uncertainty relationships; frequency of discontinuity is limited by the first one. Vacuum has no memory of the fissures. 2.4.Corollary to the localisation. The fissure diminishes the medium constraints and allows the medium to vibrate in a domain surrounding the end of the fissure.2.5. Physical analogies. – - Photo-elastic studies of the fissuration of solids (Corten & Park, 1963) show a little sphere and a wavelike perturbation at the end of the fissure. – - A fragile and resonating object can be broken by a sound wave. This crack emits a sound wave. Here we consider one associated wave, emitted and absorbed. – - Broken panes picture an emission of rays. li]2.6. Consequences of the fissure model (without modifying the laws of quantum mechanics).
