dhw: But now you try to fudge the issue again by replacing guidance with “guidelines”. (Presumably something like: Thou shalt not do what thou canst not do.) Once more, “working things out for themselves” entails autonomous cellular intelligence. Either you agree that this is possible or you don't.

David: I've never changed my stance. An onboard inventive mechanism is possible, but it will always contain guidelines or guidance. No need to go round and round.

BBella: Might not the guidelines be Sheldrake's morphogenic field?

Good point. His morphogenic fields regards shape, so there is still the issue of organizing the biochemistry to fit, unless it is a part of the field concept.
