Maia is the tale of an idea, and its improvement right into a operating speculation, that offers a cybernetic interpretation of ways progress is managed. development on the lowest point is managed via regulating the speed of progress. entry to the output of keep an eye on mechanisms is supplied by means of perturbing the becoming organism, after which filtering out the implications to development expense. The output of the expansion keep an eye on mechanism is then available for interpretation and modelling. Perturbation experiments were used to supply interpretations of hormesis, the neutralization of inhibitory load and bought tolerance to poisonous inhibition, and catch-up development. The account starts with an advent to cybernetics protecting the law of development and inhabitants elevate in animals and guy and describes this new method of entry the regulate of progress methods. This publication is acceptable for postgraduate scholars of organic cybernetics and researchers of organic development, endocrinology, inhabitants ecology and toxicology.
