We explore the concept of “biological individuation” (l’individuation biologique) which was introduced by a French philosopher: Simondon in his doctorate thesis initially defended in 1958 and entitled “l'individuation à la lumière des notions de formes et d'information. More precisely, we will focus on the assertion according to which within the living, there is “a regime of internal resonance” that requires “permanent communication” and through which individuation is acting on itself. We will provide a formal representation of this assertion.
