Holographic reduced representations (HRR) are based on superpositions of convolution-bound n-tuples, but the n-tuples cannot be regarded as vectors since the formalism is basis dependent. This is why HRR cannot be associated with geometric structures. Replacing convolutions by geometric products one arrives at reduced representations analogous to HRR but(More)
Modern approaches to semanic analysis if reformulated as Hilbert-space problems reveal formal structures known from quantum mechanics. Similar situation is found in distributed representations of cognitive structures developed for the purposes of neural networks. We take a closer look at similarites and differences between the above two fields and quantum(More)
We show the presence of genuine quantum structures in human language. The neo-Darwinian evolutionary scheme is founded on a probability structure that satisfies the Kolmogorovian axioms, and as a consequence cannot incorporate quantum-like evolutionary change. In earlier research we revealed quantum structures in processes taking place in conceptual space.(More)
Noncommutative propositions are characteristic of both quantum and nonquantum (sociological, biological, and psychological) situations. In a Hilbert space model, states, understood as correlations between all the possible propositions, are represented by density matrices. If systems in question interact via feedback with environment, their dynamics is(More)
Non-commutative diagrams, where X → Y → Z is allowed and X → Z → Y is not, may equally well apply to Malusian experiments with photons traversing polarizers, and to sequences of elementary chemical reactions. This is why non-commutative probabilistic, logical, and dynamical structures necessarily occur in chemical or biological dynamics. We discuss several(More)
We show that extensive thermostatistics based on Rényi entropy and Kolmogorov–Nagumo averages can be expressed in terms of Tsallis nonextensive thermostatistics. We use this correspondence to generalize thermostatistics to a large class of Kolmogorov–Nagumo means and suitably adapted definitions of entropy. As an application, we reanalyze linguistic data(More)
In this paper we suggest an alternative to standard neodarwinian evolution theory. The problem is that Darwinism, which sees evolution as a consequence of random variation and natural selection is based on a materialistic-i.e. matter-based-view of science, while matter in itself is considered to be a very complex notion in modern physics. More specifically,(More)
We discuss two classical situations that lead to probabilities characteristic for systems with spin-1/2. (a) Pitowsky model: It is demonstrated that the definition of spin functions does not imply which circle (a parallel or a great circle) on the sphere should be taken as a probability space in calculation of conditional probabilities. Pitowsky's choice of(More)
While some of the properties of quantum mechanics are essentially linked to the nature of the micro-world, others are connected to fundamental structures of the world at large and could therefore in principle also appear in other domains than the micro-world. The aim of this article is to show the presence of genuine quantum structures in human language.(More)
