sparc that is a good find.  never heard of that one.

you know the ultimate reductionism behind 'design thinking' seems to fit right into that biophysical biology stuff that Macosko is doing.  I know nothing about it, and probably never will.  It is interesting.  But when liars claim that an understanding (or belief or acceptance of evolution is irrelevant to understanding biology, i can imagine that they think of some of the examples on Macosko's page.  

cells = machines.  tasks therefore are determine how machines function, using teleology imported from machine analogy.  

i'm not so sure that it's a good analogy (seems to be a category error to me, but I am skeptical about realism in general), but it sure as hell ain't a good teleology.  leads to the mechanical determinism that i found unrealistic in Selfish Gene etc.
