Is Darwin's Theory of Evolution based on Photon Electron Interaction?
Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is one of the greatest ideas to come out of the human mind. But what we observe in the diversity of life does not seem to be based just on the survival of the fittest there seems to be a self created beauty for its own sake! Because Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is a process over a period of time could a deeper understanding of the nature of ‘time’ explain this? Both the ancient Greeks and Sir Isaac Newton believed ‘time’ was a thing in itself, but more important than this today we have Einstein's theories of relativity. In these theories ‘time’ is more than just a measure of change of things happening because we have the dynamic geometry that forms the curvature of space-time. Energy and momentum of an object slows the rate that time flows forming time dilation and the curvature of space-time. This dynamic and interactive geometrical process must have existed before the evolution of life. Therefore the evolution of life within the Universe must have been based on the momentum and dynamic geometry of this universal process. The dynamic geometry of this process would explain why life seems to have a mathematical base. In this theory the momentum and dynamics geometry of this process is formed by the spontaneous absorption and emission of light photon energy. If our eyes were more sensitive to the light we would be able to see that everything is continuously radiating light waves of electromagnetic radiation. We have an interactive or participatory universe because the wave particle duality of light and matter in the form of electrons is acting like the bits or zeros and ones of a computer. This forms an interactive process continuously forming a blank canvas that we can interact with turning the possible into the actual! Life will create its own ripples in the fabric of space-time forming its own broken symmetry of its own evolutionary path. We see and feel this process of photon energy exchange as the continuum of time with an emergent future continuously coming into existence light photon by light photon with each new photon electron coupling or dipole moment. This theory does not change Charles Darwin’s theory in any way; it just supplements it by another more deeper and fundamental process. This is not a new idea and was the view of the influential British Quaker scientist Edward Newman.
