1. The Triple Pulse of Attention



1. The Triple Pulse of Attention is the first Notebook in the Information Dynamics series. It consists of a series of articles that have a dual purpose. First, this article stream provides an introduction to some basic mathematical forms that are at the heart of Information Dynamics – the Pulse (a.k.a. Pulse of Attention) and the Triple Pulse. Second, the articles establish that there are numerous patterns of correspondence between experimentally verified behavioral reality and the mathematical model provided by the Living Algorithm's digestion process. These include the necessity of sleep, the importance of naps, and the negative impact of interruptions on a productive session. Contemporary science has not produced a mathematical model for any of these behavioral phenomena, and is instead mystified.
