Sheldrake's Morphogenic Field - Innovation (Evolution)

DAVID: (under Evolution: a different view): Another essay from Andreas Wagner which explains the enormous protein landscape and how evolution seems to navigate it through large relationship networks.

dhw: Thank you, David, for another interesting approach to the subject.

> “Nature's libraries” seem to me to be very akin to Sheldrake's "morphic fields", though it is still not clear how organisms gain access to the right "book", or whether there is an almighty librarian in charge of the whole shebang.

To assemble Protein molecules with precise function and their duplicates managed by protein genes in a simple order to allow for gradual change, when trillions of carbon based protein molecules are possible to assemble, does take an 'almighty librarian' to invent the scheme.
