The Brain Agents Universe
Pp. 165-183 (19)
Background and Purpose: This work explains the duets in both, human brain and
animal behavior. Duets transmit the knowledge and learning messages within the
Universal Brain, by the Flow of Favorable Factors, through the Barrier. The Time-
Information-Space Set, TISS is formed.
Materials and Methods: Real-time computer is used for data acquisition from three
duets: the northern true katydid, Pterophylla camellifolia (Orthopteria, Tettigoniidae);
the firefly, Photuris versicolor; the bird, white-crested jay thrush, Garrulax leucolophus
patkaicus (Timaliidae). Computer models relate behavioral duets to the duets within the
human mind, perception and brain.
Results: The following types of duets have been identified: solo, alternation,
aggression, selective courting, aggressive mimicry, complex messages using sequences
of syllables. These duets are based on: steps in a response function; Brain Windows;
patterns; message quanta; chaos and attractors. The human brain-mind tissue, TISS, is
Conclusions: Human Brain, Mind and behavior are composed of communicating
agents. Three classes of duets have been identified. The chaotic duet is a dynamic
structure. Duet trajectories concentrate into a narrow attractor space. This is a case of
massive self-organization. The courting/mimicry duets are based on symbol-signal
processing and are capable of discovering the hidden information by observing sample
behavior and comparing it with the past learned experience. The pattern duet is
capable to recognize inexact, incomplete patterns. Through many duet loops, the human
brain agents called katydids, fireflies and birds learn about the partner, and adapt
answers and behavior. Symbol-signal processing is responsible for mental states and for
consciousness. The genetic, sensation and mental vehicles in all layers of the Barrier,
combine the born-with knowledge, with learning. The layers are unconscious of the
underlying vehicle traffic regulations. Yet each layer of the Barrier recognizes the
intentions and the meaning of quantum messages within its duet domain. The duets are
involved in the Universal Brain and Mind self-organization and in perception. The
dynamic nodes, groups, flocks and pools form the brain-mind tissue TISS.
Applications: Experimental support to the Universal Brain Theory; Human Brain
image and data analyses; stimulation and diagnoses; autonomous agents; intelligent
systems; Global Mind services on Internet.
