Definition Life/Maturana: in ontogenetic drift push through a range of interference, while a constantly changing niche is realized. - Living System/lS: operates only in the present - is open for the passage of molecules (parts of autopoietic systems) - Purpose: part of the observer - living systems have no within/without - they are in the process of autopoiesis or disintegrated - Environment: is not "used" by the system - instead they bring their own niche out.
Life is knowledge - living systems are cognitive systems.
