A description of the experience
Lyall Watson - Supernatural
If part of the eye of a frog is grafted below the skin anywhere on its body, the epidermal cells in that area will form a perfect lens. So the structure of the eye.... in a frog is not dependent on a special gene or on special cells.
There seems to be some sort of organiser somewhere else, a master plan that knows what the animal should look like and that will make the necessary arrangements in times of need.
Most of this organisation is in the hands of DNA, but this does not seem to be sufficient.
The remarkable thing about life is not that it exists in such a variety of forms but that so many forms manage to maintain their basic shape and integrity for so long in the face of the multitude of environmental forces that never stop trying to disrupt it.
Certainly the DNA code carries instructions that determine the general physical form, but perhaps there is another organiser a sort of stream of shared experience that allows only the best copies of the species plan to survive.
