The conclusion reached is that the extra legs of insects and vertebrates obey Bateson's rule for the same reason, but that reason has nothing to do with the specific molecules in their signaling pathways and their polarized alignments along the limb axes.
Morphological Computation as Morphogenesis: From Leibniz and Goethe to René Thom and Beyond
An exploration of the potential methodology for hypercomputing using the long intellectual experience of the study of morphology and morphogenesis shows that the missing element of the process of computation in the studies searching for the generalization of computation is encoding.
Antinomies of Symmetry and Information
When information and symmetry are conceptualized at a suf ficiently high level of generality and with sufficient precision, the apparent antinomies are eliminated together with the causes of misconceptions within them.

On the Informational Essence of Emergence and Evolution: An Analysis of the New Dualistic Approach
In his book “What is Information”, Robert Logan explores certain issues related to information on the basis of the connotation of information itself, and puts forward two important theories of
The Difference That Makes a Difference for the Conceptualization of Information
A mathematical theory is formulated for this alternative approach to information founded on the concept of a difference in terms of generalized orthogonality relation, which is a special case for the approach based on one-and-many opposition.

A review is presented of the relation between information and entropy, focusing on two main issues: the similarity of the formal definitions of physical entropy, according to statistical mechanics,


All theories of biological evolution depend upon at least three sorts of change: (a) change of genotype, either by mutation or by redistribution of genes; (b) somatic change under pressure of

The unity of science as a whole is achieved by this system of minimal demands imposed by each science upon its neighbors, and—not a little—by the lending of conceptual tools and patterns which occurs among the various sciences.
