Computing with space

This is the first in a series of postings concerning computing with space. I shall try to give a gentle introduction to – and later discussion around – the ideas from the paper

Computing with space: a tangle formalism for chora and difference

We shall talk about:

– mathematics of metric spaces with dilations

Bateson viewpoint that the map is the territory, as opposed to Korzybski dictum “the map is not the territory”.

– Plato’ Timaeus 48e-53c where he introduces the concept of “chora”, which means “space” or “place”

– research in the neuroscience of vision, like Jan Koenderink paper “Brain a geometry engine”

and many other.

Older papers of mine on this subject: arXiv:1009.5028 “What is a space? Computations in emergent algebras and the front end visual system” and the arXiv:1007.2362 “Introduction to metric spaces with dilations”.
