Facing 6G or any future IT-system, watching the development of past mobile communication standards or any machine communication solution, common advancement strategies can be observed. Across all domains, systems become more flexible, universal and increase their general-purpose capabilities. Modern IT-systems require to be well maintainable, allow to exchange elements, avoid vendor-lock and to supply powerful management features, like software-defined device control or remote functional deployment. All this implies a modular system setup. Up until now, such systems had to be modular by its own design and be packaged with own tools altogether. In this work, a fundamental design paradigm based on organic principles is proposed alongside basic tools to realize it. This can be utilized to build up any distributed system, like e.g. interconnecting infrastructures. It aids in the development and implementation phase and supplies a high degree of flexibility and adaptability. In particular upcoming mobile communication standards such as 6G can benefit greatly as they have to be reliable, resilient and future-proof.
