4. Attention, Life & the Living Algorithm


4. Attention, the Living Algorithm & Life is the fourth Notebook in the Information Dynamics series. This series of articles establishes yet more patterns of correspondence between the Living Algorithm's mathematical system and Life. These include the power of repetition, Posner's Attention Model, sleepiness and the problem of split attention. More importantly this set of articles employs the insights from prior article streams to establish a theoretical framework for this fresh perspective.

This is the article list for Attention in the Living Algorithm System – our fourth monograph in the series associated with the study of Behaviorial Dynamics. On this page the Reader will find 5 columns. The first column (Table of Contents) is a list of the linked articles. The second column indicates whether the articles are finished (√) or are still a work in progress (WIP). The 3rd column (Headings) provides a link to two levels of outline detail. If the Reader is interested in Section headings, click on 3: and if interested in Paragraph headings, click on 4. The fourth column (Stage) indicates whether the articles have been edited (L/K) or not (-). The final column (Pages) indicates the length of each article.
