Dear Bruno,

Thank you for illuminating the subject of differences between a
biochemically and an electrically powered problem-solving device. The frog
catching flies and the anti-ballistic drone shooting down missiles use the
same principles of spatial geometry and calculations of paths and
velocities. The difference I was trying to point out regards the noise
within the processing module. In the synchronised environment, noise is not
necessary and is regarded rather a nuisance. The machine can afford to be
against noise, as in the time slices with no action, there is no action. A
biologic mechanism cannot be synchronised to such a high degree, because
physiology happens in a system with very many, interacting elements, so
there is invariably a stochastic component to its normal running. One
cannot point out 1 cell having been flooded with nutrients discharging an
electrical impulse exactly *x *msec after a specific stimulus and *y *msec
after a different stimulus. This effect can happen only in groups, schools
(like of fish or birds) flocking, patterns. The main thought was that there
can be no rational concept for cause and effect in a multitude that cannot
be synchronised (where there is no external clock). No cause and effect:
only implications and predictions remain.

The discharge pattern is the feedback loop of the cybernetic
self-regulating cycle. We have learnt the auto-regulating loop of the
heating and the thermostat. The click of the thermostat is comparable to
the discharge of the nervous cell, both signal the non-continuable state of
what is the case and cause a discontinuity, disruption of an established
flow of that what is the case. The continuation is insupportable after
having reached a threshold. In the thermostat, the sensor and the heating
element are separate. In a brain, we have to arrive at a concept that the
heater melts down, goes up in a puff, discharges, and the void of a heater
is concurrently the first segment of a cycle in which heating begins, a
heater is re-assembled. The breakdown in the state of the neuron, which to
us appears as an electrical discharge, is not a bug, but rather it is a

One single neuron does not a thought make. There must be at least a few
dozen of them for an observer to be able to distinguish between normal,
usual discharge patterns and such patterns that are systematically
deviating from the most probable varieties. The neurons are the artists
among the information transmitters, and their usage of degrees of
brinkmanship to propagate status news by the predictable breakdown is a
mastery of destabilisation exercises of a system which we at first should
address on a much less ambitious level, namely on the level of the DNA.

May the neurons play with the dissonances that arrive at the interference
of some complicated rhythms, we wish at first to understand the basic
rhythm which runs well-constructed, predictably and in a stable fashion.

For any biologically sustainable interaction to take place, those whatevers
that interact, have to obey the spatial readings relating to *{(a+b,a),
(b-2a,a), (a-2b,b-2a); *[list incomplete]*}*. We cannot have a living cell
outside of realisable spatial coordinates. The assembly also profitably
uses the gravity axe *a+b* and may not be subjected to over-synchronising
of its constituents by external radiation.

Every element in every cycle has at all times a space-related reading also.
If the reading is valid, a coordinate in a 3D Descartes space is generated,
with axes as mentioned above. Valid is a reading if the carry of the
occupants of the places of the 3 planes that can be generated by using the
axes above pairwise, is *a=18, b=33 (at least?)*. This needs serious
attention by professional mathematicians. In the case of a valid
coordinate, the corresponding slice in space has to be assumed to have been
generated also. This gives an inroad to a very flexible concept of space.

For the genetic transmission of information, it is irrelevant, which
physio-chemical properties the tokens and elements have in “real life”. The
task was to build such a conceptual frame around observations that the
observations become intelligible. The model should depict 3 related
statements in a strict sequence so, that each one of the statements can
have one of 4 different forms, and this pairwise. Voilá, this task has been
solved, as a theoretical problem. It is logically possible for genetics to
exist, and we understand how to read the numbers to see it at work.

If one sorts and orders logical tokens, repeatedly, one will observe
patterns, generated by cycles. Some of the cycles generate 3D Descartes
spaces. In fact, there are two 3D Descartes spaces generated, of which the
relation seems to be reflecting on the inner connections between *(a,b)*.
The coordinate of a point in that space is read off from 3 planes. In the
simplest version, there is only one coordinate per plane plus the
almost-symmetrical mirror image in the alternate 3D space.

Merging the two Euclid spaces that have been generated by repeated
sequencings into one, common 3D, Newton space, which has not been generated
by sorting but by approximating and predicting, one finds 4 possible
readings in 6 planes of 1 coordinate. The readings of a coordinate are
among the properties of the coordinate, therefore the *value i (i: 1..6) *is
an implication of *element j (j: 1..4) *sitting on *place k (k: 1..3)*. The
meaning of *value i* can well be: “friends, now Order A is in force,
therefore the right places for elements are: ….”.

The narrative here is that a clean-up in the mental laboratory is needed.
We do away with straight lines and use loops only, with knots of different
kinds in them. The loops circle around the central element, of which there
are two. The central elements are each quite in the middle of a Euclid
space. Each of the spaces is made up by the incessant turning of “now” of
the planes front-back, left-right, up-down. The numbers lead one to believe
that we live in a world made up of two two-thirds of spaces that are as
interlinked as *(a,b)* can be, where the logical moment rides along time,
in space always performing a three-step slide from plane to plane. Our
nervous system has merged the two Euclid spaces of accounting reality into
one common Newton space of sensually experienced reality. Our everyday,
normal space appears to be zipped up from two two-thirds spaces.

The neurons may well utilise the additional artefact of two more planes
that also connect to the spatial grid, although only in the form of planes,
lacking a third common dimension, namely *{(a,b) vs. (b-a,b-2a); (a,a-2b)
vs. (b-a,a)}*. One would want to build a concept, in which no material
breakdown happens in the Euclid or Newton kinds of space, but the
irreconcibilities build up slowly but systematically on the planes of *{(b-a),
a}. *This would lead to a concept of down-in-the-world, where the elements
are where they are and do what they do, and of a world-in-the-clouds, where
for each state actualised in the world, there is an entry in a large book,
how much this fact – of the element being on place p – is deviating with
respect to its expected position on the planes built on *{(b-a), a}.* In
this model, the neuron does not suffer a breakdown in the realm of *(a+b)*,
but simply rebalances after a discharge of electricity, resetting the
differences on the level of *(b-a)* to their starting state.

The numbers deliver a skeleton. The schema – or syntax – of the standard
sentence consists of references to positions of element in linear
sequences. These translate into coordinates on planes. Twice three planes
can be assembled such, that two rectangular spaces exist. These can be
merged into one common space, in which some exactitude is lost, and
varieties can have place. The most elementary variety relates to which of
the four possible coordinates on each of the three planes is being
designated as the correct variety. This accounting exercise describes
nothing but space itself, and how it is built up from linear positions. In
actual fact, what gets ordered are physico-chemical assemblies of types of
logical artefacts. Logical artefacts are pileups in space, where there are
such concurrently running cycles, which generate more invalid spatial
coordinates than valid ones, therefore not enough space is generated for so
many cycles transversing the spatial coordinate. This appears to be a
complicated business and needs careful tabulating. On the other hand, to
build the Mendeleev table up from nothing else but by observing relations
among natural numbers is a fascinating task, and it appears that the task
can be done. We have to go very deep here in FIS. No Heinzelmaennchen in
sight yet, we have to do the job ourselves.
