Existential Categories note

I transfer this comment from the pkTools blog, my initial attempt to save my Thinking Tools modules once all my domains had been censored, destroyed, me jailed:

No one of my Thinking Tools is more important than that on Information, or my special development of information: Macroinformation (my analysis and theory of complex information). Macroinformation materials I’m recreating at my blog of that name.
To talk sensibly about complex information I use Gregory Bateson’s two basic categories of existence, Pleroma (the physical universe) and Creatura (the universe of life).

I declare a subset for Bateson’s Creatura: Sentiens, the universe of self-awareness. See my Macroinformation blog. And be aware that I’m redeveloping the concept as I develop it, since I see ambiguity in Sentiens: between sanity and pathology, all having to do with semiotic sophistication (that I fear Homo sapiens is not adequately sentient to add accurately to its awareness.) (In other words, awareness is flawed: perhaps essentially and permanently.)

About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
