Reseña del editor:

Dynamic Evolution offers a comprehensive challenge to the Darwinian premise that the diversity of life is explained solely by the natural selection and survival of the fittest. It will become apparent from a complete study of this work that the principle of the selection of strong functions / properties of life and living organisms, whilst providing a partial fit and a compelling argument, falls under the shadow of the complete picture provided by Dynamic Evolution. Just as a large multi-piece mosaic can appear quite beautiful and coherent, even when some of the pieces do not quite make the right fit (they “look almost right”; the emergent patterns can still be impressive and instructive), the picture they present seems to lack something. A comparison with the more accurate paradigm, with the pieces in elegant continuity exhibiting many contiguous patterns, becomes the preferred arrangement. This work endeavors to demonstrate that Dynamic Evolution, by virtue of the coercive argumentation used and the fecundity and uniformity of the inter-connected principles covered, provides a greater number of “correctly fitting pieces” of the proverbial mosaic. Indeed, the challenge that this work presents is for the reader to find pieces that cannot be made to fit, or to point out patterns that are inconsistent and can be demonstrated to have a better fit. If a small number of “patterns” are found to require a better fit, then modification of the theory is required. If a large number of patterns are found to require a better fit, then it may be time to abandon the theory. For many decades scientists have searched for the “theory of everything” (ToE), which would provide unifying principles and formulas to guide researchers, using existing or modified prevailing theories, toward a more accurate understanding of how the universe and, in particular, life arrived in its current state. This is often described as a consolidation of Einstein's theory of relativity with quantum mechanics. The principles and theories set out in this work have the noble objective of laying down the groundwork for the ToE. The principles explained in this work have been granted the descriptive name “dynamic” by virtue of the evidence presented in the progressive modules, and the nature of the evidence. This is contrasted with Darwinian Evolution which is seen to be a “passive” explanation to the evidentiary argumentation. For example, natural selection, by definition, requires that an organism or function is already present in order to be selected for survival. The Darwinian principles tend toward the strengthening of a function that is in competition with another function for the perpetuation of the organism. But there is less emphasis on the mechanisms that explain the development of the competing functions prior to selection; survival has been enhanced at the expense of arrival. This underscores the quiescence of the Darwinian model. Dynamic Evolution, on the other hand, deals with the processes that underlie the development of the function or organism. These processes are dealt with in detail and contrasted with parallel or similar developments that form a repeating pattern throughout the Dynamic model. Hence the term “passive” or "quiescent" is contrasted diametrically with “dynamic” or “active” in relation to the very processes that Darwin felt served to underpin his theory. The concepts covered by this work reference the scientific fields of physics, mathematics, astronomy, biology, anatomy, physiology, zoology, and cellular microbiology. Relevant studies in these fields are cross-referenced and contextualized for each of the arguments that are presented in the study of Dynamic Evolution. The advanced ideas proffered by this work demonstrate that Dynamic Evolution is the most convincing and attractive alternative to the theory of Darwinian Evolution to date.
