Why is the query of the di?erence among residing and non-living topic - tellectually so appealing to the guy of the West? the place are our desires approximately our personal skill to appreciate this di?erence and to beat it utilizing the ?rmly tested applied sciences rooted? the place are, for example, the cultural roots of the firms coated these days via the self-discipline of Arti?cial existence? Cont- plating such questions, one among us has famous  the lifestyles of the everlasting dream of the fellow of the West expressed, for instance, within the previous testomony as follows: . . . our lord god shaped the fellow from the airborne dirt and dust of the floor and breathed into his nostrils the breath of lifestyles, and the fellow turned a residing being (Genesis, 2. 7). this can be the dream in regards to the workmanlike act of the construction of Adam from clay, in regards to the production of lifestyles from anything non-living, and the con?dence within the magic strength of applied sciences. How has this dream constructed and been switched over right into a truth, and the way does it ascertain our present-day actions in technological know-how and expertise? what's this con?dence rooted in? Then God acknowledged: “Let us make guy in our picture. . . ” (Genesis, 1. 26). guy believes in his personal skill to copy the Creator’s acts, to alter principles into genuine issues, simply because he believes he's godlike. This con?dence is – utilizing the fashionable Dawkins’ time period – maybe crucial cultural meme of the West.

Still, individuals of one class can, if necessary, perform activities typical of the other class. This self-organizing, adaptive aspect of labor division can be explained by a simple behavioral threshold model: although each ant is equipped with a complete set of behavioral responses, diﬀerent ants have diﬀerent threshold for diﬀerent behaviors. For example, a soldier generally has a low threshold for defense related activities and a high threshold for nest maintenance duties, while for workers it is just the opposite.

This paper presents recent work in computational modelling of diffusing gaseous neuromodulators in biological nervous systems. It goes on to describe work in adaptive autonomous systems directly inspired by this: an exploration of the use of virtual diffusing modulators in robot nervous systems built from non-standard artificial neural networks.
