Daniel Hüttler „ADOAPT + MAXDEAMON“

(Adopt = Adapt - a + o ) / Adopt / Adapt

"Clearly, that funny little creature sitting on my desk must be a demon. After a while he started to talk. I was right. Ì am Maxwells´s Demon,´he said. And then he disappeared."

"Living organisms that are interacting with their environment (arrangements) have serveral options at their disposals:

1. They may develop `languages´ (sensors, neural codes, motor organs etc.) which `fit´ their given environment better (reveal more order).

2. They may change their surroundings until it `fits´ their constitution.

3. They may do both. However, it should be noted that whatever option they take, it will be done by computation. That these computations are indeed functional isomorphs of our demon´s activity is now for me to show."
