MEMORY AND NOISE 1)2)
Memory is able to built itself (in whatever form) only by orderly integrating noises into already existing informed sequences.
In this way, there is an increase of information in the system… But the price that must paid for it is a decrease of redundancy, i.e. reserves of internal unused potential states usable to counteract external variety introduced by noise.
Thus, memory as a process uses up its potential as it enrich itself.
This understanding of memory as an accumulative, but self limiting process of organization, is significant for biological as well as socio-cultural systems limited survival.
