Non-local, holographic universe, are you not familiar with the idea and the science? If the universe is made up of information within a non-local,
holographic framework, then evolution isn't purely an isolated phenomenon, and so the last or more recent would conceivably be the most evolved ie:
the last shall be fist and the first, last. Ah never mind, it's out there and not really on topic. It's just an idea I've had and "grokked", that
evolutionary development might involve information sharing within the context and framework of an interpenetrating, organic, cosmological unity.
Just to show that I'm not totally bonkers with this idea which might be thought of in terms of a cosmological evolutionary framework arising both as a
top down, downward causation, and, from the bottom up as an evolutionary phenomenon in eternity, I would like to defer to these two impeccably
credentialed scientists of reknown.

If you think of white light as a metaphor of infinite, formless potential, the colors on a slide or frame of film become a structured reality
grounded in the polarity that comes about through intelligent subtraction from that absolute formless potential. It results from the limitation of the
unlimited. I contend that this metaphor provides a comprehensible theory for the creation of a manifest reality (our universe) from the selective
limitation of infinite potential (God)...
If there exists an absolute realm that consists of infinite potential out of which a created realm of polarity emerges, is there any sensible reason
not to call this "God"? Or to put it frankly, if the absolute is not God, what is it? For our purposes here, I will identify the Absolute with God.
More precisely I will call the Absolute the Godhead. Applying this new terminology to the optics analogy, we can conclude that our physical universe
comes about when the Godhead selectively limits itself, taking on the role of Creator and manifesting a realm of space and time and, within that
realm, filtering out some of its own infinite potential...
Viewed this way, the process of creation is the exact opposite of making something out of nothing. It is, on the contrary, a filtering process
that makes something out of everything. Creation is not capricious or random addition; it is intelligent and selective subtraction. The
implications of this are profound.
If the Absolute is the Godhead, and if creation is the process by which the Godhead filters out parts of its own infinite potential to manifest a
physical reality that supports experience, then the stuff that is left over, the residue of this process, is our physical universe, and
ourselves included. We are nothing less than a part of that Godhead - quite literally.

And, his other seminal work
Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos: The Rise of the Integral Vision of Reality
Ervin Laszlo is considered one of the foremost thinkers and scientists of our age, perhaps the greatest mind since Einstein. His principal focus of
research involves the Zero Point Field. He is the author of around seventy five books (his works having been translated into at least seventeen
languages), and he has contributed to over 400 papers. Widely considered the father of systems philosophy and general evolution theory, he has worked
as an advisor to the Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. He was also nominated for the Nobel
Peace Prize in both 2004 and 2005. A multidisciplinarian, Laszlo has straddled numerous fields, having worked at universities as a professor of
philosophy, music, futures studies, systems science, peace studies, and evolutionary studies. He was a sucessful concert pianist until he was thirty
In his view, the zero-point field (or the Akashic Field, as he calls it) is quite literally the "mind of God".
Naming Hal Puthoff, Roger Penrose, Fritz-Albert Popp, and a handful of others as "front line investigators", Laszlo quotes Puthoff who says of the
new scientific paradigm
[What] would emerge would be an increased understanding that all of us are immersed, both as living and physical beings, in an overall
interpenetrating and interdependant field in ecological balance with the cosmos as a whole, and that even the boundary lines between the physical and
"metaphysical" would dissolve into a unitary viewpoint of the universe as a fluid, changing, energetic/informational cosmological unity."
an excert from "Science and the Akashic Field, an Integral Theory of Everything"
Akasha (a . ka . sha) is a Sanskrit word meaning "ether": all-pervasive space. Originally signifying "radiation" or "brilliance", in Indian
philosophy akasha was considered the first and most fundamental of the five elements - the others being vata (air), agni (fire), ap (water), and
prithivi (earth). Akasha embraces the properties of all five elements: it is the womb from which everything we percieve with our senses has emerged
and into which everything will ultimately re-descend. The Akashic Record (also called The Akashic Chronicle) is the enduring record of all that
happens, and has ever happened, in space and time."
Laszlo's view of the history of the universe is of a series of universes that rise and fall, but are each "in-formed" by the existence of the
previous one. In Laszlo's mind, the universe is becoming more and more in-formed, and within the physical universe, matter (which is the
crystallization of intersecting pressure waves or an interference pattern moving through the zero-point field) is becoming increasing in-formed and
evolving toward ever higher forms of consciousness and impressioned experience.
