Evolutive Algebras & the Lateralization of the Brain

Jonathan J. Dickau


The formula to extract the flow of time from non-commutativity, used by Connes and first suggested by Tomita, finds expression in the way the lateralization of brains results in hemispheric specialization.  In an unpublished 2009 paper, I suggested laterality arises due to the directionality of processes and time.  In more recent work, I show that Connes’ derivation of time informs our understanding of time’s evolution more generally.  So here I explore how the two insights are connected in a way which explains our perception of time by revealing the origin of brain lateralization from more primitive creatures to humans.
