Tieing together some issues
Peter Krieg, one of the founders of the German start up bring polylogics to the market, sent to me an evocative paper titled "Biological Computing"
He is still editing this paper, the draft of which is posted in the National Debate bead tread.
How does biological computing, in the sense you are introducing become, "anticipatory"?
The answer that Ken Ewell and I are presenting in seminar at George Mason University is that anticipatory reactions by living systems involves an real time entanglement of top down anticipatory reactions, called habits, and human memory of the textures, colors and emotional invariances.
These invariants are separated from real time experiences and, something in the physical brain serves to re-create the invariant into new contexts. As a consequent from this storage mechanism, knowledge of the invariances from experience are stored in the fibers of the limbic system.
This is "pure relational information" (using the language of Maturana that Krieg is also using) likely best expressed, as Richard Ballard and John Sowa points out, in the notation for of a n-tuple:
< r, a(1), a(2), . . . , a(n) >
The Readware substructural, letter, semantics will serve the same function as the invariants separated form experience, in the formative structure (subject matter indicators) produced by the Ontology referential base when that base contains the Readware substructural semantics. We need perhaps four weeks to integrate the two systems.
As this entanglement begins to occur, in the formation of experience in real time, the associative cortex becomes involved and links primary relational associations and allows a global non-specific inhibition of electromagnetic phase coherence by the frontal lobes to create a competitive/associative selection (Neural Darwinism - see G. Edelman’s work).
