The question might become as of the extent to which integrated biological systems express or manifest an altogether more subtle logic than purely brute-forced calculation. We have a tendency to isolate intelligence and problem solving in the processing unit but, beyond the implicit (or at least plausible) value in any identifiable circuits and cleverly-constructed cybernetic feedback loops endemic to processors or artificial learning systems, what is the distributed and emergent quality of a living system that enables such astounding energy efficiency and endlessly-creative adaptation?
There is another logic at work here. It is the product of a constitutively recursive and unbounded, self-inflected object-hierarchy or ontological matrix that experiences no debilitating paradox in the functional and operational mischief of system self-containment. Where we observe an inhibiting void and challenging logical vacuum of or as holistic systemic self-containment, it is a property of our own shallow (and cognitive) limitations more than it is of the possible ways we might approach these problems. There is a unifying property of such systems ontologies and it is, counter-intuitively, and yet quite necessarily, conspicuous by its absence.
