practopoiesis – got there through isomorphism then “good regulator”

Somehow I end up here again. [about a year or two ago I saw a video presentation by him and read some of his work and liked it]

This time, I tripped over him when I was refreshing my memory on isomorphism (wondering its connection to metaphor, as metaphors are imperfectly mapped (which gives them their power)), ended up on “Good Regulator” in cybernetics ( “every good regulator of a system must be a model of that system”), which let me back to practopoiesis, something I was looking up a year or two ago.

[and yes, reading GEB now that I’m back at my computer but I like shooting out sideways to go deeper and then back again to the subject when a particular point grabs my attention]
