Summary: Suppose the cortex is a 'representation' of the environment, i.e. corresponding to
events in the periphery (stimuli, reactions) there are events in the cortex. Nothing
new in this idea. But suppose that the cortex is more 'sensitive', so that if the
periphery is being driven out of its range of stability the corresponding variable
in the cortex will break first, i.e. get outside its range of stability, and thus switch to another portion of the
field (817), and change partially to another organisation. Cortex as 'sensitive' Reactions right and wrong Reflex, conditioned
Summary: One stage in our long journey is finished and solved: the 'exact' case, i.e. an organisation where we are given full and exact information
about every little detail. Differential equation and linear partial differential equations
Summary: A number of interesting points from Richardson's book.
Summary: The various "constancies" of the body, so carefully maintained (homeostasis), are
also separations and independencies. This needs further investigation. (See 2314) Homeostat design Isomorphism making machine Natural Selection : Homeostasis = constancy = independence, why the latter? 2181. Answered 2314, to preserve the gene pattern.
