The following is an embedded article that I wrote several years ago. The article deals with my ideas about how the development and growth of the brain is constrained by physical laws. The ideas that I present stem from my interest in evolution. I have written other articles/chapters related to this topic as well as to Systems Theory. and the organization of the brain. Of importance to this blog is the fact that I have implemented these ideas in regards to autism. I hope that by publishing the same in this blog it may promote some helpful discussion.
