The complexity of biology is comparable to quantum mechanics ... our whole fundamental view of biology needs to change.
Evolutionary biologist Michael Rose at the University of California, Irvine
Dr Bapteste said: "If you don't have a tree of life what does it mean for evolutionary biology. At first it's very scary – but in the past couple of years people have begun to free their minds." ... He says biology is vastly more complex than we thought and facing up to this complexity will be as scary as the conceptual upheavals physicists had to take on board in the early 20th century.

Our world may be a giant hologram:
If this doesn't blow your socks off, then Hogan, who has just been appointed director of Fermilab's Center for Particle Astrophysics, has an even bigger shock in store: "If the GEO600 result is what I suspect it is, then we are all living in a giant cosmic hologram."
The idea that we live in a hologram probably sounds absurd, but it is a natural extension of our best understanding of black holes, and something with a pretty firm theoretical footing. It has also been surprisingly helpful for physicists wrestling with theories of how the universe works at its most fundamental level.
Transudationism is the best hypothesis that fits all the evidence, unifies the Forces of Nature, and ties Reality into a cohesive whole:
The Big Bang was an autotelic cosmic seed, and the universe is an organism for cultivating Consciousness.
All life is a form of light, and the cosmos is a Holy Hologram.
