PRINCIPLES OF THE BRAIN-COMPUTER ANALOGY:
UNCONVENTIONAL HYPOTHESES OF BIOPHOTONICS

 

The essence of the human being is founded on the qualities of homo significans & homo cogitans / loquens & sapiens, that is on his / her competence of signification, knowledge / verbalization, wisdom. The attempt to define man's highest attribute of “sapiens sapiens” presupposes a better understanding of the "natural" process of the human thinking and language, the resources of their cognitive mechanisms. This understanding is proposed by the authors from the original perspective of biophotonics (biology + theory / technology of lasers) and neuro-semiotics, using the main functional principles of the brain-computer analogy, on the one hand, the genetic mechanisms of the natural and computational language, on the other hand.
