Chapter 4 offers a genuine biological model of intelligence. It goes right back to basics: to molecular networks, and life before genes; to evolution and cells; the true nature of complex environments; the kind of information living things really need to survive in them; and the “intelligent systems” that use it. It also explains why the new concepts of “dynamical systems” are needed to understand the adaptability of complex organisms.

Keywords:   evolution, adaptability, pattern-abstraction, dynamical systems, epigenetics
