"Information Transfer and the Disciplic Succession" (SB 2.9.45)

Alachua – August 26, 1994 / (072)

Even Darwin admitted concern with some of the details involving the manifestation of human cognition from an earlier primitive state, as conceived in evolutionary theory. With such thoughts in mind, Thompson discusses an argument for “devolution” based on a Puranic analysis involving two parallel lines of creation: (1) the evolution of forms, and (2) the transmission of information. He proposes that considerations such as these can help shed light on philosophical issues involving the enigma of mind.
