![](/images/demo/demo-landscape.jpg) To-Do Notes: - Create a new version of this file under '_pages' (save this one as a works-in-progress archive) - Create a tab on the sidebar for this page (and link other social media accounts to here instead of to 'about') - Link to this page using hashtags on each of the individual article pages' headers. - Use dusty old library / bookshelf as the featured image This Archive curates my various articles and projects by topic. It contains works both finished and in-progress. Inspired by [Gwern](https://www.gwern.net/About) each work is prefaced with my current *Confidence* level in the claims made in the article, or how likely they are to be right, with levels being denoted by terms found in Kesselman's [List of Esimative Words](/docs/kesselman-2008.pdf). Additionally, since each piece functions more like a set of notes that gets updated over time, there is also a status level that gives when it was last updated. Finally, each work is also prefaced with the following tags denoting any topics they cover: ## Biology **Individual Works:** [Thermodynamics, Agency, & Living Systems](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/thermodynamics-agency-livingsystems) [Some thoughts on the Free Energy Principle]() [Analyzing Microbiome Data](https://towardsdatascience.com/analyzing-microbiome-data-320728b56b8e) [Classifying Sepsis Patients with Reinforcement Learning](https://github.com/mundyreimer/RL-Sepsis-Prediction) [Organisms as a specific kind of Information]() See many of the papers by Jürgen Jost and this one here as the basis for writing your article: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12064-020-00327-1 Also cite from the following Information Theory book (specifically look at Alex Zahkarvov's review on Goodreads): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/433443.An_Introduction_to_Information_Theory and show the part where information theory melds with physics to construct a single-molecule variant of Maxwell's Demon and show how this could possibly relate to the laws of thermodynamics. Also cite the book Life's Rachet and include some concepts from there. **Rewriting Systems Sequence** [An Introduction to Lindenmayer Grammars]() [Generating our Garden with Python]() Part 1 - use garden of eden with a snake, this is a coding tutorial with turtle **Biological Circuits Sequence:** [Book Discussion: Chapter 1 - Transcription Networks]() ## Cognitive Science **Individual Works:** [The Hyperbolic Geometry of Mental Space](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/hyperbolic-geometry-mental-space) [Thermodynamics, Agency, & Living Systems](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/thermodynamics-agency-livingsystems) [On Representation, Notation, and Thought](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/representation-notation-thought) [Some thoughts on the Free Energy Principle]() ## Mathematics **Individual Works:** [Math to Code Converter Web App](https://mundyreimer.github.io/math2code_sphinx_docs/) [Book Review: The Shape of Space - How to Visualize Surfaces and Three-Dimensional Manifolds by Jeffrey Weeks](https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3404405359) [Book Review: The Four Pillars of Geometry by John Stillwell](https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3563763717) [A Hyper Neat Argument](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/hyper-neat-argument) ## Computer Science **Genetic Algorithms with Python Sequence** **Lindenmayer Systems Sequence** ["In the beginning was the Word": An Introduction to Lindenmayer Grammars with Python]() ## Physics **Individual Works:** [Book Review: The Shape of Space - How to Visualize Surfaces and Three-Dimensional Manifolds by Jeffrey Weeks](https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3404405359) [A Hyper Neat Argument](https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3563763717) ## Linguistics **Individual Works:** [On Representation, Notation, and Thought](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/representation-notation-thought) **Rewriting Systems Sequence** [An Introduction to Lindenmayer Grammars]() [Generating our Garden with Python]() Part 1 - use garden of eden with a snake, this is a coding tutorial with turtle [Turtles All the Way Down - Fractals, Ferns, and Iterated Functions]() Part 2 - use world turtle image, delves into other rewrite systems other other l-grammars, like barnsley ferns ## Philosophy **Individual Works:** [A Hyper Neat Argument](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/hyper-neat-argument) ## History [Notes on the Free Energy Principle]() [On Representation, Notation, and Thought](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/representation-notation-thought) # Science Fiction **Individual Works:** [Book Review: Theory of Constraints & Kynes-style Analysis of Dune](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/theory-of-constraints-dune) [Book Review: Perdido Street Station by China Miéville](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/book-review-perdidostreetstation) [Book Review: The Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/book-review-thequantumthief) [Book Review: The Fractal Prince by Hannu Rajaniemi](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/book-review-thefractalprince) [Book Review: The Causal Angel by Hannu Rajaniemi](https://mundyreimer.github.io/blog/book-review-thecausalangel)
