In this paper we address balancing process of ecological flow networks. In existing approaches, macroscopic objectives to which systems organize are assumed. Flow balance provides only constraints for the optimization. Since flow balance and objectives are separated from each other, it is impossible to address how the appearance of objectives is related to flow balance. Therefore, we take an alternative approach, in which we directly describe a dynamics of balancing process. We propose a simple mathematical formula for local balancing dynamics and show that it can generate a self-organizing property, which could be seen as a primitive objective.
