: Re: Morphic fields
If an organism is at a certain size scale, it must do certain things because
of the way the world is. These, as you say, are constants, as much a
property of the universe as a vortex round a plughole, therefore outside the
realms of which you speak. If he's 'branched out' into MR, which I'm not
sure that he has, then that's a pity.
This may sound as a daft question, but are you talking about Goodwin
here or about people in general !?
If it would be the last, would that than mean, in a sense, that we humans
have no free will due that we must do certain things because of the way
the world is !?
Morphic realm or not, if structures whatever they may be are constants
that would undermine our understanding of free will, not !?
