Project Description:
Central to the Society of Mind are the concepts of 'nemes', which are agencies responsible for representing fragments of states of minds. Together with K-lines, they form critical bridges interconnecting agents in different ways.

"The goal of our project will be to create a Neme simulator that illustrates the three axes of topology, function, and environment. Each of these axes will be illustrated by a system that allows active manipulation and graphical visualization of nemetic structure, its interactions with agents, or exposure to a variety of stimuli. Additionally, since the human mind would have to contain millions of complex interconnected nemes in order to enable us to recognize, memorize, and associate concepts the way we do, we will in this project, discuss the scalability of nemetic structures."
