I sliced this video out of the movie - "MindWalk"(1990).
Its based on Fritjof Capra's novel - "The Turning Point."
This movie is a clash between the following points of view.
1. The Descartes-Newton Mechanistic/Reductionist point of view of the Cosmos, (that looks upon life as a reducible natural machine.)
2. Chaos Theory's Holistic point of view of the Cosmos (that rejects the Descartes-Newton Mechanistic/Reductionist point of view.)
3. A Poet's point of view of the Cosmos.
"I feel as reduced being called a holistic system as I do being called a biological machine."
The Poet rejects the Descartes-Newton point of view. As well as the Chaos Theory point of view.
Life is not reducible. Life has no building blocks. No fundamental level. The human being is not a reducible biological machine that gets "mathematically influenced" by the Environment/Cosmos.
