Abstract:

The Turing-inspired Meta-Morphogenesis (M-M) project (2011--) asks: "How can a cloud of dust give birth to a planet full of living things as diverse as life on Earth?"
In particular, what transitions in information processing (contents of information, forms of information, mechanisms of information, uses of information, sources of information, ... etc.) were required for production of all the varieties of life on Earth.
Additional topics are included or linked at the main M-M web site:
http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/cogaff/misc/meta-morphogenesis.html
A partial answer is a theory of construction-kits, including construction kits produced by biological evolution and its products.

This talk presents some preliminary, incomplete, ideas about types of construction-kit and their roles in biological evolution.
