Ervin Laszlo argues that cosmology, quantum physics, biology and consciousness cannot explain many of the anomalies of coherence with their current paradigms. Consequently, they resort to extra, ad hoc assumptions, increasing complex adjuncts or even deny the data. However, eventually new paradigms are developed to replace the old ones, and that is occurring at this time in some avant-garde research communities.
Laszlo then offers a series of propositions from which
he concludes, "that anomalous coherence
implies a system-wide field."
Ideas to Explore
Anomalous coherence in a system implies quasi-instantaneous correlation among the parts and components of that system.
Such correlation implies system-wide connectivity.
System-wide connectivity implies in turn the presence of an interconnection medium.
In a realist perspective the interconnecting medium is a system-wide field.
