Maybe that anxious, phrenetic energy undermines our ability to stop, reflect, and think. Maybe the best way that we can do to functionally manage is to seek refuge in the comfort of categorical simplicity and binaries: of dramatic hero-villain narratives.

Discussion Paper Series: The Markov blankets of life: autonomy, active inference and the free energy principle https://butwhatdoweknow.com/discussion-paper-series-the-markov-blankets-of-life-autonomy-active-inference-and-the-free-energy-principle/ https://butwhatdoweknow.com/discussion-paper-series-the-markov-blankets-of-life-autonomy-active-inference-and-the-free-energy-principle/#respond Thu, 20 Aug 2020 17:18:20 +0000 https://butwhatdoweknow.com/?p=2949 Abstract: This work addresses the autonomous organization of biological systems. Itdoes so by considering the boundaries of biological systems, from individualcells to Home sapiens, in terms of the presence of Markov blankets under theactive inference scheme—a corollary of the free energy principle. A Markovblanket defines the boundaries of a system in a statistical sense. Here we consider how a collective of Markov blankets can self-assemble into a globalsystem that itself has a Markov blanket; thereby providing an illustrationof how autonomous systems can be understood as having layers of nestedand self-sustaining boundaries.
