Ternary (platonic) perception in Leibniz and Peirce In any mental operation, it take 3 to tango. In Leibniz, in perception brainmind operates in 3 stages: A neuron or neurons emit an optical neve signal Raw perception of this signal by the One and converison of this into an image Return of the image to the individual mind And intelligence or thinking requires three entities, as CS Peirce has explained.
That which is observed (the object-- the software) That which mechanically observes (the mechanical perceiver-the algorithm to execute the software code) That which determines or understands what is perceived (intelligence---which the computer does not have) This isn't rocket science: You have a text in your hand (Firstness). You read the text (Secondness). You understand what the text means (Thirdness). Dr. Roger B Clough NIST (ret.)
