Beer R. D. (2020) An integrated perspective on the constitutive and interactive dimensions of autonomy. In: Bongard J., Lovato J., Soros L. & Hebert-Dufrésne L. (eds.) Proceedings of the 2020 Conference on Artificial Life (ALIFE 2020). MIT Press, Cambridge MA: 202–209. Fulltext at
Enaction’s claim of continuity between life and mind is a bold one. We investigate one aspect of this claim using a glider in the Game of Life as a toy model. Specifically, we study the relationship between theories of glider constitution and glider interaction, demonstrating how a glider’s constitution completely determines its interaction graph, but not the particular life that it enacts, which also requires knowledge of the dynamics of its environment.
