Network of Perceptions

Fariel Shafee


The role of perception in conscious behavior and decision-making is examined. The effect of spatial and temporal stochasticity in the acquisition of beliefs is discussed. The idea of an agent as a locally strongly coupled group of states leads to the creation of energy minima in an interaction potential landscape. The interaction of such agent states and environment states acting at different levels of complexity and scale, subject to stochastically expressed interaction interfaces, may lead to asymmetry in perceptions. Agents possessing different perception related beliefs are then connected in a social network.
