Mechanistic and Nonmechanistic Science

Mechanistic and Nonmechanistic Science

An Investigation into the Nature of Consciousness and Form
by Dr. Richard L. Thompson

Modern science theorizes that humans are simply a chemical machine, a device to produce more genes like themselves. This theory is challenged here with sound scientific evidence.

The problem with the scientific theory that everything has a basis in a chemical reality is consciousness. Consciousness is a concept scientists continue to grabble with as they attempt to fit it into their scientific theories.

But consciousness isn’t a neat fit into chemistry and physics. It is not amenable to a molecular explanation. But an explanation it needs.

Explore the fascinating journey of a scientist exploring consciousness in mechanistic and nonmechanistic terms.
