We may be stumbling onto real ontological (and perhaps evolutionary) topics here...
I guess to frame my thoughts on where does a larger system come from I would say that a car may come into existence through a production system it know nothing about. It may be driven on a road system it doesn't know about.
A caterpillar comes into existence through a natural, evolved system.

I question the presumption of 'larger system' of which the caterpillar is supposedly part.
