I have a vague recollection of there being three forces in nature
which work together to create a conscious entity. The first two
follow the gradual evolutionary path you describe Liesel, but the
third is "invoked" (deal with it Rick) after the form has reached a
sufficient stage of development to call forth this quickening. Anyone
else familiar with this theory?
