My Thoughts on my 8oth
question should be how does matter arise from life? Life is creative, but
everything in flux would simply be chaos. As a ground for building order, life
takes on habit - over-powering habit. The result is matter, entities that no
longer are capable of self-acting. There is more to reality than we knew. Could
there be living patterns of energy? Is there a biofield in pre-space creating
the past is more like physics. That biology has led to the study of structure
where we wind up with nothing but misleading guesses as to what processes are
going on. Now, electronic
has been discovered. The living energy structure in our bodies is electronic
and biophoton energy flows.
said "If Nature wants to do something she will find a way to do it if
there is no contradiction to basic rules of Nature. She has time to do so.
(Living Nature also often works with more complex systems than the physicist
uses for testing his theories.)"
"From the organizing
principles of life we can learn better choices for acting, both individually
and for social policy." ~ Quote from Life As Creative Organisms by Norm Hirst
Life is sui generis, that is, life is unique and in a class by itself. It
cannot be compared to or explained by physics.
primordial activity, which Bohm called the implicate order.
means the organizing principles that are creating all forms of life.
An organism is not calculating,
and second of all, it is connected to the requirements of its environment.
Living organisms must live in an organismic environment to function. Organisms function to conform to coherence
conditions imposed by their environment while co-creating coherent acts through
internal processes that individuate and add their uniqueness to the whole. Thus
organisms have a Janus character.
Janus was a Roman God with a double-faced head, each looking in opposite
directions at the same time. An organism is looking both to its own unique
experiences while sensing what also can be unique contextual conditions of the
moment. Thus to develop their unique contributions, organisms must harmonize
this reality and that is accomplished through the use of inherent value intelligence.
I have found that this requires values as guiding force, as opposed to cause
My Reflections of 80
I began at MIT delving into
the foundations of knowledge from physics and mathematics to metaphysics,
logics, biology and theology—and then into new findings in biophysics and
..Instead, I would discover
through a lifetime of inquiry that physics and it's foundations in substance
metaphysics and accompanying logics is totally inappropriate for applications
to understanding life. Way down deep human knowledge developed in a way that
became committed to errors that destroy life.
