In 1963, 1965 and 1967 "Symposia on Quantitative Biology of Metabolism" have been prepared at the lovely island of Helgoland (Biologische Anstalt) through me in col­ laboration with O. KINNE and F. KROGER. regrettably this necessary method in the direction of bringing jointly students in a standard means ceased, in most cases for monetary purposes, even though the necessity for and curiosity in meetings like those for the alternate of rules on distinct themes unchangeably persists. So I needed to search for different percentages and one among them was once to attempt to rearrange an analogous con­ ference lower than the auspices of NASA. This establishment, notwithstanding, finally re-. taken care of, even though in the course of my dialogue with its representatives a brand new certain subject matter received form. this is often the subject to which this quantity is dedicated: Bio­ genesis. it's also handled in a brand new approach that most likely can be a version for. comparable undertakings: a symposium through correspondence. during this new method of clinical details trade, manuscripts have been amassed via the editor and despatched to each contributor for his reviews. the writer may perhaps then answer through a concluding comment. So, sometimes very worthwhile principles about the issues of different papers may be collected and it truly is to be was hoping that this process has conferred upon this quantity a undeniable specialty. after all, I needed to realize the contract with Springer-Verlag to not exceed the level of the amount dispensed to us.

HAMANN, J. R. and BIANCHI, L. : J. Theor. BioI. 28, 175 (1970). DISCUSSION FONG: Because of lack of explanation of many of the special concepts introduced it is difficult to understand some of the discussions without a previous knowledge of this line of development. I do feel that the concepts of relation and information can be unified (as I did in my paper in this volume). Relation is just one kind of information. The basic principles are the same. ROSEN: Without going into the specifics of the authors' developments it should be pointed out that their use of the term "relational" seems rather different from that used by RASHEVSKY in his discussions of "relational biology" starting in 1954.

If we know that the system is conditionally stable, then it can still model biological processes, with the proviso that, under "normal operating conditions", the 35 system never sees a perturbation which would elicit the instability. This is a point frequently overlooked in analog simulations, which are frequently plaguedbyinstabilities and therefore discarded; the point is that all the rheostats of an analog computer are equally easy to reset, while the corresponding ·parameters of the system being modeled may beexceedingly hard to perturb.

Hile by such conditions. But can this idea also be upheld for the grjgin of information? It seems to meventuring an idea being in vague analogy to GOEDEL's theorem - that the origin of information cannot be explained by information theory itself. This suspicion is obviously shared by several workers and possibly the reason why on the one hand the necessity to define a qualitative information is frequently postulated and why on the other hand arguments have been put forward claiming a theory of algorithms (or programs or instructions) which give the directions according to which information can be transmitted.
