Informational Dynamic Systems: Autonomy, Information, Function

Abstract : The main purpose of this paper is the conceptual exploration into the pre-biotic world, a world that we consider to be made up of a relatively continuous sequence of systems directed toward the origin of the first life forms. In a tentative way, we propose the Informational Dynamic System. This type of system would constitute the ancestral system that definitively opened the door to the pre-biotic world. Also, it explains, in a naturalistic way, the physical emergence of functions and information.
