Contributors in psychology, physics, art therapy, and other fields explore complexity in the interface between living systems and information technology. Their topics include fractal geometry as a bridge between realms, exploring structural and dynamic properties of microtubules by means of artificial neural networks, the biotic logic of quantum processes and quantum computation, recurrence indicators for estimating characteristic size and frequency of spatial patterns, and a parametric generator for architectural and urban three-dimensional objects.
