Title Emergence of dynamic form through phase relations in dynamic systems
Date 2005-10-24
Description Gregory Bateson construes mental process as the flow and transforms of differences in a system. Stuart Kauffman uses NK Boolean systems to model the emergence of order in biological evolution. Because the Boolean base (0, 1) maps to Bateson's idea of difference, we simulate Bateson's epistemology with a Boolean system. Following Bateson's idea that knowledge emerges from the relations among multiple (at least two) descriptions, where a description is here defined as a systematic process that encodes relations between two such descriptions. The first description is retinal activity, which here is modeled as a discrete dynamic system that falls into different attractor cycles with simulation model we also propose a second, representational, description. Dynamic from perception emerges from the phase relations between the frequencies of the two descriptions. Moreover, two classes of forms, fundamental and derived, emerge from these phase relations.
