Dear Bruno and Alberto,
I agree some what with both of you. As to the idea of a "genetic
algorithm can isolate anticipative programs", I think that anticipation
is the analogue of inertia for computations, as Mach saw inertia. It is
a relation between any one and the class of computations that it belongs
to such that any incomplete string has a completion in the collections
of others like it. This is like an error correction or compression
ROGER: For what it's worth--- like Mach's inertia, each monad
mirrors the rest of the universe.
Yes, but the idea is that the mirroring that each monad does of
each other's "percepts" (not the universe per se!) is not an exact
isomorphism between the monads. There has to be a difference between
monads or else there is only One.
