"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Evolution is not a Toss of the Dice

The principle that there is an hierarchical ordering of the earth's biosphere that determines evolution is born out in recent research that shows adaption via disparate genomic pathways in different species. Thus the vector of evolution is not random genetic mutation but a energy landscape constrained and bounded by conditions that prevail in similar ways globally. This is to say that there is a reverse projective conformal causal geometry at work.

The idea of a pre-established harmonic ordering that Leibniz proffered is quite real. To understand the implications of this though, one must go beyond the relatively fixed range of possible mutations in mere biological evolution. Indeed, we need to project backwards from the unique nature of humanity's defining characteristic. We are not limited in the same way that all other species are in this regard. We can consciously change our mode of energy throughput via deliberate innovations to move to previously unknown resource bases. It is this higher ordered non random lawfulness that thereby governs all possible forms of evolution. This unique property of human creativity provably exists necessarily. It alone is the measure of all things.
