Sheldrake's Morphogenic Field - Innovation (Evolution)

dhw:I think it’s all the information and the energy that constitute the nature of whatever is.


BBella I possibly disagree. I'm thinking that all information is matter and energy is energy. Energy may possibly be the force that guides the matter to be what it is. But the morphic field, I see as an imprint (memory) that energy is guided by to continuously create what IS.

Information is not material.. Life's code is material but the information it imparts is immaterial

dhw:I don’t know if consciousness gives a living thing life, or consciousness depends on life. NDEs suggest the former, since the “I” appears to survive the death of the body, but the materialist view of course suggests that consciousness depends on life (though I’ll come back to that if and when I ever get round to formulating my reconciliation between dualism and materialism!).


BBella: I look forward to your formulation!

I agree
