Abstract [en]

Darwinian evolution is reconsidered from a microscopic perspective commensurate with modern advanced molecular readings of our physical world and its mathematical structure. Fundamental biological processes in physical Complex Enough Systems, CES, are defined and analyzed. The material description contrives molecular events at precise temperatures and specific timescales reflecting a fundamental spatiotemporal character of a conceptual class of Correlated Dissipative Structures, CDS. The latter is subject to a higher-order statistical ensemble, the Correlated Dissipative Ensemble, CDE, reminding of Dawkins' notion of an evolution of evolvability. The ontological question is reviewed incorporating the material and the immaterial parts of Nature. The exposition integrates well-defined teleonomic processes, objectively governed by an evolved program, leading up to a self-referential hypothesis for molecular communication, Communication Simpliciter. The principal unit of selection is intrinsic to the molecular genetic level and proceeds toward an extended phenotype that implicates perception and cognition. It is explicitly proven that active and mirror neurons provide communication protocols for cellular recognition and networking. The paradox of upside-down vision is explained together with a basic and straightforward analysis of the Necker Cube and the Spinning Dancer illusions.
