After a recipient has been transfused with blood of a group other than his own, specimens of his blood treated with a serum that(More)

As is now quite common, Bateson used the single term cybernetics in reference to an aggregate of these ideas that grew together shortly(More)
Complex systems such as Cellular Automata (CA) produce global behaviour based on the interactions of simple units (cells). They are fascinating objects, producing more pattern than a single human is capable of observing within their own lifetime. Their evolution is specified by local interaction rules that generate some form of ordered, complex or chaotic(More)

This assumption rests mainly upon increase in hemosid-erin deposits in the(More)

Walter all toyed with related ideas and, more recently, Valentino Braitenberg (1984) has directly hinted at and inspired much of the initial work in this eld. ER's(More)
