abstract

  • The existence of several stable isotopes for most chemical elements is a well known and widely used fact of chemistry. Nevertheless, despite all the attention given to the stable and radioactive isotopes of individual elements, there have been very few, if any, attempts to look at isotopicity as a single phenomenon in its own right. Some possible links between isotopicity and various structural and functional levels of organization of the material and informational realm are put forward in this article, which presents isotopicity as an independent and informationally active level of spontaneous pattern formation and self-organization, giving a flexible link between morphogenetic potentialia and the microscopic operational level of physico-chemical processing. A dynamical parallel is drawn between Anderson localization induced by an isotopic disorder and holographic mental processing interpretable as self-focusing of mental patterns and spontaneous creativity.
