Biosemiotics and Death - Self-destructive Systems and Language

Black biosemiotics agrees that, as the number of perceived signals increased in evolution, agents learned how to integrate them into meaningful categories representing various objects and situations, of which the usual ones are food items, partner agents, and enemies. Agents also learnt to predict events using models. These classifications and models represent the knowledge of an agent about itself and its environment, but in a self-destructive system that knowledge is used to destroy the system, at  rate faster than dissipation would expect. 


Biosemiotics and the sequence of actions

For a self-destructive system, logic is a useful tool that facilitates creative destruction of communicating agents in an environment in which those agents wish to survive at any rate.

A virus is the perfect self-destructive system. All it wishes is to replicate itself, and in its replicating itself it destroys its environment, thus attaining its self-destructive goal. Now wait! Isn’t that what humans they do themselves? Seen from this perspective, it seems viruses and virus-like systems are more beneficial than harmful, as they tend to destroy those who destroy the Earth…

Consider language acquisition from the extreme philosophical behaviorist point of view: x learns that in a certain context, people use a certain phonetic string for some reason or another. Probed by the context, x starts to use this string in similar situations. The use is either accepted or rejected by the linguistic community. Dependent on which, x continues to use the noise in such contexts, or the use is revised. Such an analysis clearly leaves out some of the processes behind meaning formation and fixation; and, for the record, this behavioristic line was explicitly denied by Wittgenstein.
