Scales and Filters

(p.68) Chapter Three Scales and Filters

T.F.H. Allen

Thomas B. Starr

University of Chicago Press

Signals are filtered to give message. Filters can run into the future to give anticipation. The filter defines the scale of a holon. The distinction between signs and signals is explained in the origins of writing. Internal genons and external environs are conceptual devices for addressing signals arriving into and departing from holons. The symmetry of some filters for transmission versus reception is explained by coupling movie cameras to projectors.
