George Edelman is introduced as a neurobiologist who believes that all investigation of mind, consciousness and human condition in general must take into account the fact of the evolution. This ontology presupposed a specific ontology. Life on earth cannot be described by reference to physical laws only. Due to the Evolution ever more complicated systems are brought forth, and their constitution cannot be reduced to the constitution of earlier systems. On the other hand, however, new structures incorporate older structures, and, according to Edelman, living creatures are endowed with memory that help them retain their older structures.
