Robert Rosen's (M,R)-systems are a class of relational models with a structure that defines a necessary distinguishing feature of organisms. That feature is an impredicative hierarchy of constraint on the properties of the model that correspond to the closure of an organism's entailment relations with respect to efficient cause. As a consequence, a computable model cannot be an (M,R)-system. This has been mathematically proven, and hence indisputable. Nevertheless, "computable" implementations… CONTINUE READING
