Summary: Memory implies that step-functions exist and that the system contains more than one
resting state. 'Memory' is 'change of resting state'. Example 3833, 3856, 3842, 3900. Multiple resting states are necessary: they are also sufficient if we observe them
through a system U, which can be the observer! Memory what is necessary
Summary: Resting states and latent roots of complex-variable systems.
Activity positive effect of Memory filling of Oddments : Prolonged activity of a parameter makes the system's behaviour tend to depend more
on the parameter's particular line of behaviour than on the system's particular initial
Genes fundamental property Memory and genes Natural Selection : Tobacco mosaic protein can exist in many forms; but the only form that can persist
through the generations is the self-reproducing type, 4184.
Summary: In all cases so far, all arcs are assumed to have some sign that they are, or have
recently been, active, and the discriminative feedback hits only those with the sign.
5557, 5584, 5601, 5609, 5628 Activity as information for feedback Discrimination methods known
Summary: Certain concepts about a machine demand a set, which can exist only in another machine.
Such concepts can hardly be used by the machine if thinking about itself. Summary: Machine whose output is invariant for changes in the speed with which the input is
sent in. There must be an intervening stage of memory. Memory allows input speed to be irrelevant
Summary: The great difference between teaching by pain and teaching by pleasure. 6550 Summary: To feel sympathy is to have no assurance that the other entity is really feeling.
6384 Pain distinct from pleasure Pleasure different from pain Sympathy proof of feeling?
