> As for "memory" explaining ontogenesis,
It depends on what is called "memory". I would not say "memory" speaking of the laws that are governing the embryonic development, but why not?
"Ontogenesis" in the sense of the physical development of the embryo is at odds with any Darwinist viewpoint, it's rather in perfect agreement with the concept of "punctuated equilibrium". Here, nuclear genes are not relevant.
