Sample text

Without a thoroughgoing understanding of the indifference of nature to its most complex (currently known) offspring, there can be no understanding of how awareness has struggled to emerge from the night time of the underconscious of nature and to sustain its fragile claims against its own inertia and entropy. Awareness has to be paid for, and there is no cosmic cost-benefit analysis that can prove that the world, or even our world, has attained benefits from ‘‘consciousness’’ that outweigh the costs.

The logic is similar to that examined in denying that nature could be defined by some specific difference. The question was: difference from what? A framework that struggles to be roughly commensurate with its subject matter, in this case, nature, hopes to be in the same position (although the temptations to grandiosity must be scrupulously examined) by encompassing other perspectives. Again it is noted that all perspectives think that this is possible, even while covering this aspiration with a counter rhetoric that veils their imperial intent.

For finite creatures the answer should be obvious, namely, that power and wonder often combine in deeply ambiguous ways and that power itself has internal ambiguities that run the gamut from sadistic control to a sense of healthy growth and expansion, while wonder can also run its own gamut from voyeurism to astonishment over the sheer splendor of infinitely ramified nature. Part of the secret behind the transition from the former motives to the latter can be found in the role that anthropomorphism plays in a categorial array, whether philosophical or theological.
