Abstract

Although life is destined to be approximately described as a self-referential form, the self-reference is invalidated and life avoids a contradiction. Since life does not include any contradiction, it reveals a unity as a whole. Since life is not a self-circulation, it implements diversity and evolvability. Here we show life as invalidated self-reference by constructing a model cell driven by damaged damage. Since life is always close to destruction, it exhibits both of the amoebic motion and the intelligent Physarum-like behavior.
