Perhaps the most distinct question in science throughout the ages has been the one of perceivable "reality," treated both in physics and philosophy.Reality is acting upon us, and we, and life in general, are acting upon reality. "Potentiality," found both in quantum reality and in the activity of life, plays a key role. In quantum reality observation turns potentiality into reality. Again, life computes possibilities in various ways based on past actions, and acts on the basis of these computations.

This book is about a new approach to biology (and physics, of course ). Its subtitle suggests a perpetual movement and interplay between two elusive aspects of modern science reality/matter and potentiality/mind, between physics and biology both captured and triggered by mathematics to understand and explain emergence, development and life all the way up to consciousness.

But what is the real/potential difference between living and non-living matter? How does time in potentiality differ from time in reality? What we need to understand these differences is an integrative approach. This book contemplates how to encircle life to obtain a formal system, equivalent to the ones in physics. "Integral Biomathics" attempts to explore the interplay between reality and potentiality.

The theory of Memory Evolutive Systems represents a mathematical model for natural open self-organizing systems, such as biological, sociological or neural systems. In these systems, the dynamics are modulated by the cooperative and/or competitive interactions between the global system and a net of internal Centers of Regulation (CR) wich a differential access to a central heirarchical Memory.
The MES proposes a mathematical model for autonomous evolutionary systems and is based on the Category Theory of mathematics. It provides a framework to study and possibly simulate the structre of "living systems" and their dynamic behavior. MES explores what characterizes a complex evolutionary system, what distinguishes it from inanimate physical systems, its functioning and evolution in time, from its birth to its death.
The behavior of this type of system depends heavily on its former experiences, and a model representing the system over a period of time, could anticipate later behavior and perhaps even predict some evolutionary alternatives.
The role of the MES model will be two-fold: theoretical, for a comprehension of a fundamental nature and practical, for applications in biology, medicine, sociology, ecology, economy, meteorology, and other sciences.
Key Features:
*Comprehensive and comprehensible coverage of Memory Evolutive System
*Written by the developers of the Memory Evolutive Systems
*Designed to explore the common language between sciences
