The titular "Bandie" is a fictional creature devised by Tadeusz Skalski in his "Fairy Tales of
Functionalism" (published in "Folia Philosophica" 24). It is supposed to be a reduction ad
absurdum for the thesis of organizational invariance. I show that the argument works only because
the though experiment Skalski uses is highly suggestive and that, contrary to Skalski's intentions,
The Bandie is in fact quite a complex dynamic system.
