Faith in Facts, the "one"...

"design does not need an active interferring designer its an inherent part of the universe"

how are the implications of chaos in particular self organisation and evolution evident in both the physical manifestation and the physcological effect of the decision making process?

how does being exposed to this concept affect our understanding of our ability to comprehend it? how does it develop instinct, emotions, and what are the implications ?

is our consciousness a lie? are we just an amalgamation of millions of self organising systems within self organising systems, at every level the simplicity of the feedback equation affecting our decision making processes. Is Plato's three parts of the soul irrelevant, is Dawkins right?, decision making an accidental feature of millions of years of evolution. What we call subconscious or unconscious are just features of self organising and evolving sytems?

How does this relate to individual and society? If this feedback loop and other theories like existential mathematics have contributed to one vision of the world and the laws of nature (when we consider the search for theoretical particles) the picture of our life can be painted as a beautiful and "elegant" (important aspect to theoretical sciences) but at the same time sometimes alien and cold, the only warmth and respite for the soul lies in the "human" aspects, what can we sense and share from these definitions of the "human" element. At this level how close is science to religion or spirtual understanding and debate? Are different ways of describing the universe as fallible and admirable in equal measure as each other? In our new media churches what is the role of the pop science in engaging the general public in scientific views? What are the wider implications?
