[Fis] Chemo-informatics as the source of morphogenesis - both practical and logical.

2011-11-06 Thread Jerry LR Chandler
List, Loet, Joe: This email responds to several questions raised in response to my long post of Oct. 16, 2011. Loet asks: 1. What is the equivalent in chemo-informatics of a bit of information? Can this be operationalized as a formula like Shannon's H? 2. Can one compute with this formula in

Dear Michel, Jerry and Loet, Welcome back to the fray, Jerry, but I recall a kind of gentlemen's agreement we made at our meeting in Li├Ęge, namely, that I can find a place for your theory, but you should reciprocally find a place for mine! In the following, I will try to disentangle two major

without excluding either. And without confounding one another! We are able to specify the differences and then to translate meaningfully between different discourses. Best, Loet ___ fis mailing list fis@listas.unizar.es

Dear Jerry, Perhaps, we exchange at cross-purposes. I don't wish to deny that in specific fields such as chemo-informatics or social-science informatics, one studies specific arrangements and configurations. (I mentioned graphs.) However, the red herring emerges when these configurations are
