I am not being (overly) metaphorical by saying that what the theory must most do here is make real progress working on mysteries of science at the table where all evidence is to be presented for judging which will then fill the blank pages where it gets written down for history to see, as in:
Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - Runnin' Down A Dream
The result of scientifically challenging this theory is now literally the pioneering of new areas of science. Coding an intelligent causation event is here a milestone, even breakthrough in understanding the emergence of intelligence. The theory explains what the next level has for a circuit schematic and all necessary for such models to be written and tested. That is what a theory is for, to find new ways to answer questions that everyone has. When it can answer questions, all are then glad we’re no longer stuck in the past with the confusing barrage of speculations that as we can see literally consume Wesley, who is more or less saying that I should not take it seriously when I already don’t because of how easy it is (for number of reasons) to actually go crazy trying to make sense of it all. I spare everyone that frustration by having what did work and was needed for theory that here links to the best by-far “What is Life?” answer on the internet from a respected education expert who very well sums up what is important for science teachers and us to know. It is complete enough that the theory is then off to wherever it happens to go after that, instead of stuck trying to answer the question of “What is Life?” without having first studied professor Koeslag.
We don’t need to go back to where Wesley thinks is important for us to begin. Or need to meet some other gauge of what a theory is, which here requires successful experience with it, before even knowing what a theory really is. Some having to hate it just goes with the territory. When the anger is tremendous Collective Intelligence Theory starts making even more sense after theory that was supposed to have been impossible forms inside a collective that includes scientists.
A theory is something that is read which explains how something works which in turn gets science noisily moving along toward new models to explain things (such as light) different ways. Theory being taunting, teasing and all the rest makes it (for a scientist too) like moth to a flame, where I was just one before you who reached its source then got singed real good but was OK.
Considering how there is now theory to predict very scientifically interesting intelligent causation events the theory is well enough already working on a mystery, going wherever it leads, then eventually needing to jump into this forum. Needing more than that for it to qualify as a theory is missing the point of what a theory needs to be for it to be scientifically useful and get around. Just being able to not need to care about thousands of pages of philosophy mixed mess that there once was for theory, only helps indicate how much real progress has been made, by at least us.
The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.
