    The piece originally had footnotes. These are the references you asked about:

    Domenica Bueti and Vincent Walsh reference
    D.Bueti, V.Walsh Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society, Biological
    Sciences 2009 364, 1831-1840

    Yehuda Rav reference
    18 Unconventional Essays on the Nature of Mathematics. Edited by Reuben Hersh. 2006 Springer, New. York

    Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela
    H. Maturana, F. Varela, The Tree of Knowledge, 1987 Shambhala Publications

    Hope you’re still interested in looking at them.

    – “In a recent essay, mathematician Yehuda Rav chooses …”

    – “As suggested by biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela …”

    I’d love to chase up some of these references, but without citations, I probably never will, since this is not my main area of research.
