Abstract : The purpose of the research reported here was to show experimentally and prove mathematically the nature of H. Blum's hypothesis of signal propagation and abstract transformation. Two machines were developed to transform signals from parallel-spatial input to sequential-temporal output. The first of these was an optical device; the second, and electronic analog of the first, incorporating an internal signal processor. Concurrent mathematical studies provided formal proof of the consitency of such a process. (Author)
