Embryos, Galaxies, and Sentient Beings


Embryos, Galaxies, and Sentient Beings: How the Universe Makes Life deals with theoretical issues arising out of Embryogenesis, including: the relationship between thermodynamics/entropy and the emergence of life; a general set of embryogenic principles for life on planets and moons in the cosmos; an explanation and critique of Intelligent Design and the proposal for a more dynamic psychospiritual theory of creature development; a series of alternatives to genetic determinism; a discussion of the relationship between consciousness and matter; and an interjection of 9/11 (which occurred during the writing of this book). Chapters include:
What is Life?: Evolution, Thermodynamics, and Complexity;
Is There a Plan?: Creationism, Cultural Relativism, and Paraphysics; Biogenesis and Cosmogenesis: Cells, Genes, and Planets;
The Principles of Biological Design: Physical Forces in Nature;
The Dynamics of the Biosphere: Deep Time and Space;
The Limits of Genetic Determinism: Dimensionless Epigenetic Landscapes;
Topokinesis: Physical Forces in Development;
Tissue Motifs and Body Plans: Coordinating Form;
The Primordial Field: Metabiology and The Molecular Apparatus; Meaning and Destiny: The Relation of Consciousness to Matter.
