Conway et épigénétique

Image
Une recherche via Googlesearch sur le mathématicien John Horton Conway [et son automate cellulaire appelé "le jeu de la vie"] a fait émerger ce papier des résultats : Conway's “Game of Life” and the Epigenetic Principle https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4905947/ . Il propose une équivalence entre l'approche de Conway et la biologie.
On y trouve en particulier tableau suivant :


Une autre équivalence pourrait émerger de la comparaison : nous devrions tous adopter cette règle simple "TOUJOURS CHAUSSER DES LUNETTES ANOPTIQUES"... clin d'oeil anoptique à John Horton Conway et Olivier Auber (ANOPTIKON) 😜

MAJ du 25 mai 2020
En 1967 John Horton Conway travaillait sur sa théorie mathématique des nœuds et des liens (An enumeration of knots and links, and some of their algebraic properties https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/B9780080129754500345). Cette théorie trouve des applications dans différents domaines et notamment en biologie molé…

Yuval Noah Harari: the world after coronavirus

Citation :
"This storm will pass. But the choices we make now could change our lives for years to come (...) In this time of crisis, we face two particularly important choices. The first is between totalitarian surveillance and citizen empowerment. The second is between nationalist isolation and global solidarity (...) Asking people to choose between privacy and health is, in fact, the very root of the problem. Because this is a false choice. We can and should enjoy both privacy and health. We can choose to protect our health and stop the coronavirus epidemic not by instituting totalitarian surveillance regimes, but rather by empowering citizens. (...) We must hope that the current epidemic will help humankind realise the acute danger posed by global disunity. (...) If we choose disunity, this will not only prolong the crisis, but will probably result in even worse catastrophes in the future. If we choose global solidarity, it will be a victory not only against the coronavirus, b…
