Biological phenomena making sense, creating experiences. No neural network necessary. Molecules are 'recruited'. How? IMO, Molecular quorum sensing. Sensorimotive semantics. Molecules detect each other. They can figure out what's going on within their intertial frame of perception (a range of scale/frequencies). A single molecule is held together by a feeling of shared 'charge'. It's a sensorimotive-electromagnetic circuit that feels saturated or unsaturated in different ways. We exploit this level of sense and motive in electronics, using the charge sensitivity and motive power to drive our own senses and motives through the macro-molecular semiconductor. This effect is orders of magnitude simpler than the synergistic senses and motives which can be achieved with cells and tissues. Different, richer qualia on the sense side, smarter, more volitional power on the motive side. This scaling up of qualitative content possible within inertial frames is another kind of meta-sense = perceptual-relativity through cumulative entanglement. This is what makes carbon different from just hydroden x 6 and a silicon chip from a living kidney or a brain. Different sense, different motive. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
