CSS Colleagues,

Last month's discussion of entropy dissipation as a possible discriminant between living and non-living systems meandered back to self-referential systems and lead Milt to forcibly assert that we should (finally) address autopoiesis head on. We are lucky to have a local, Dennis Sandow of https://reflexus.org/, give us a short introduction primed by Maturana's article "What is Sociology?" , after which we'll digest it with a talking circle.
