Yes, if my THEORY OF INTELLIGENCE is correct, this is exactly what I imagine: that our intelligence arises from the pooled intelligences of the different cell communities communicating with one another (materialism). And (dualism) it is possible that this pooled intelligence gives rise to a form of energy which transcends that of the individual cells/communities (as in ant societies) and even survives the death of its source, as images survive the death of the materials that produced them, thus explaining phenomena such as ghosts and déjà vu. Whether the energy survives as an ongoing consciousness remains a matter of faith.

NB This is part of Chapter 2 in the history of life. The source of the first intelligence remains an open question (see "Quantum Physics: conscious universe").
