1688Question re: evolution, time, and mind
- May 18, 2002The theories of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin assume that there is an
objective flow of time in the universe. The theory of evolution makes good
sense so long as it is discussed within the context of *Newton's* universe
(i.e., within the framework of Newton's objective/universal time flow). But
the theory does not seem to "fit-in" very well or "belong" in *Einstein's*
universe. Einstein's theory of relativity suggests that there is *no*
objective flow of time in the universe; relativity suggests that the passage
of time is entirely *subjective* and *mind-dependent*!
Can Darwin's objective evolutionary process take place in a universe in
which there is no objective flow of time?
