The community will be divided into general disciplines or fields of study. Much of the overall system can be taken from existing university structures. Students defer to a teacher or mentor who defers to a department head, who in turn defers to a committee or a faculty leader.

When dividing into different people into separate subjects this should be done with great care and should not isolate subjects or members completely from each other. Evolutionary theory and programming can be very inter-related not to mention physics and chemistry, art and biology etc.
Decisions where practical should always be contestable by a dialogue in a public forum once the motion has been overturned or won however the decision should be gracefully accepted until new facts have been found to bear on the case in dispute.
