Bennett on evolution /2010/02/08/bennett-on-evolution/ – The Gurdjieff Con

I thought I would put up some more material on Bennett’s (outlandish) perspective on evolution and history. (The material on the eonic effect is much better) I am not a proponent of these views, bu… Source: Bennett on evolution /2010/02/08/bennett-on-evolution/ – The Gurdjieff Con

The real complexity of evolution

The issue of evolution is scrambled by reductionist science but we can get a rough idea of the real problem with evolutionary theories by looking at the eonic effect which rapidly shows what is missing in standard accounts. The works of J.G. Bennett, despite derailing in new age confusions, shows another type of approach. In … Continue reading The real complexity of evolution

The mystery of evolution

The hyparchic regulator: evolutionary form factors in a timeless dimension? J.G. Bennett on speciation, individuality, eight term systems…a warning biology is probably not even remotely close to a theory of evolution  We have suggested two post-Darwinian takes on ‘evolution’, whether in deep time or in history: that based on the eonic effect and that of … Continue reading The mystery of evolution

solving the evolution mystery…soul  questions are insoluble for darwinism…//The soul question and the confusion over the abortion debate… 

The question of ‘soul’ is insoluble for darwinism, to put it mildly, but it is almost equally difficult for any other perspective. We were prompted by J.G. Bennett, here, among others, and his proposal was to bring in his ‘demiurgic powers’ in his The Dramatic Universe, vol 4. It is a remarkable but completely speculative … Continue reading solving the evolution mystery…soul  questions are insoluble for darwinism…//The soul question and the confusion over the abortion debate… 

Evolution and the eonic effect: confusions of ID

https://darwiniana.com/?s=evolution+Bennett In the wake of a new article critiquing Darwin and citing the ID group we might reference our huge number of posts on the issue, starting with J.G.Bennett’s engaging perspective, one of which I am critical but which actually finds a new approach to the question. Bennett’s work is provocative because it suggests something … Continue reading Evolution and the eonic effect: confusions of ID

Life, evolution and the clue of consciousness

We have cited the very important new evidence on mechanobiology as it casts doubt, from still another direction, on hard core darwinism. But the question remains, beyond negative critiques of evolutionary theories, what direction might we look for a positive view? Conventional biology, including even the critics, hardly has a clue to the enigma of … Continue reading Life, evolution and the clue of consciousness

Life, evolution vs mind and cosmic energy /2010/02/08/life-evolution-vs-mind-and-cosmic-energy/ – The Gurdjieff Con

Bennett’s views are outlandish, no doubt, but he raises an issue that won’t go away: is mind evolution in man the same as life evolution in general? Bennett’s outrageous speculations nonetheless fo… Source: Life, evolution vs mind and cosmic energy /2010/02/08/life-evolution-vs-mind-and-cosmic-energy/ – The Gurdjieff Con
