About the Biomechanics category

PCT claims to deal with all forms of life, from bacteria and slime-molds to mosquitos, trees and elephants. The means by which they survive as individuals vary, but all must deal with perceptual control in the context of their physical structure. This category is about differences and similarities in perceptual control hierarchies in bodies with different kinds of biomechanics, such as the flexible trunk of an elephant, eels with electric possibilities for action, trees that sense and act against the predations of some insects. How do their different biomechanics affect what and how they control the perceptions they do?
