Part III: Indicational CA


As it is reasonable to define “indicational” stack machines it is equally reasonable to define the concept of indicational cellular automata. In both cases, the definitions relies on the primary ‘semiotic’ properties and not on the specific features of the calculus of indication, like the double crossing.
The same hold for all other definitions of CAs. The specific semiotic properties of digital CAs are not considered, what counts are the transition rules on semiotically identical signs. For kenomic CAs, it is the kenomic definition of the ‘data’ what is relevant. At least all this is correct at a first glance.

This study of “Indicational CAs” is focused on the proto-semiotic conditions of George Spencer Brown’s Calculus of Indication as developed in his work Laws of Form, and not on the ‘arithmetical’ and ‘algebraic’ rules of the calculus of indication (CI) itself.

Hence, the ‘arithmetical’ rules of the process of distinctions, the law of condensation and the law of cancellation are not thematized in this context but their deep-structure of inscription, the ‘topological invariance’ of the notation is chosen as the primary topic and studied in the framework of cellular automata.

This approach has not yet been studies properly in the literature about Spencer-Brown’s calculus of indication.

With this CA-oriented study of the proto-semiotic conditions of the CI, the field of research of the deep-structure of the CI is opened up.

The interesting results of this study are presented as such, and shall not yet be thematized or interpreted by graphematic and grammatological considerations.

Earlier graphematic characterizations of the Laws of Form are helpful for an understanding of the presented approach but shall not be involved into the present considerations.

Commutativity of terms for indCA

”A third deviation from classical semiotics is less obvious: the commutativity of the concatenation operation. For any two terms "a" and "b" the terms "ab" and "ba" are identical. That this is indeed a semiotic identity (and not just a logical equality) has been stressed by Varga."

"We call two elements x = (xIndicational CA_1.gif, y = (yIndicational CA_2.gif∈ AIndicational CA_3.gifequivalent, in short notation
(1) x ≈Indicational CA_4.gif y
if and only if there is a permutation f: {1, ..., n} → {1, ..., n} such that
(2) yIndicational CA_5.gif= xIndicational CA_6.gif i= 1,...,n

We could now say that a "string" in the Brownian sense is an equivalence class of A* with respect to ≈Indicational CA_7.gif, i.e., an element of the quotient set A* / ≈Indicational CA_8.gif.

(A) If the two given tokens of strings have different lengths, then they are different. If they have equal lengths, then go to (B').
(B') Check whether each atom appears equally often in both string-tokens. If this is the case, then they are equal, otherwise they are different.” (R. Matzka) Calculus/Diamond%20 Calculus.html Calculi/Complementary%20 Calculi.html
