EAI OnGoalsAndMeans"There cannot be Ethics without Models of possible behaviors, and Imagination to explore them."
We build models of the universe to correctly influence our behavior for the best; But these models in turn influence our very goals. So we may consider the dynamics of models together with that of people, and how some patterns of thought emerge from the chaos. Life forms (in the broadest meaning of the term) are agents internal to the world, and getting some feedback by observing it from the inside, in the general form of "information".
