Hypercomputación biológica y comunicación entre los seres vivos

Translated title of the contribution: Biological hypercomputation and communication between living beings

Carlos Eduardo Maldonado

Research output: Chapter in Book/ReportChapterResearch


The concept of biological hypercomputation (BH) has been introduced (Stepney, 2009; Maldonado, Gómez, 2015) as a way to understand how living systems process information. This paper presents the developments of BH but it claims that, accordingly, the living beings communicate via structures rather in the form of signs and symbols. Chemistry in general, and chemical topology in particular set out the ground to understanding this idea. What is at stake is the understanding of the logics of life. Key Words: Sciences of complexity; computation; the logics of life; the origins of life; chemical topology.
