The task is a theoretical study of multidimensional information. An attempt is made to generalize the concepts of classical one-dimensional information theory to several dimensions. Studies of the natural biological world are sometimes used to suggest optimum methods of information translation. The major effort of the project was directed toward determining the waveshape and coherence properties of natural light on the basis of quantum mechanics. An investigation was made which showed that carriers of biochemical information in the blood and elsewhere in the body have properties which are analogous to those of radio frequency carriers. As a consequence of the investigation, it appears that a fuller consideration of the selectivity aspects of biological carriers would lead to a better understanding of certain biological phenomena.
