Brief and simplified discernment to complement the on going exploration https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/09/one-quantum-physics-greatest-paradoxes-may-have-lost-its-leading-explanation:
Phenomena such as coherent and decoherent. And superposition and collapse of wave functions require not only mechanism but also process since mechanism requires process. Another way of saying is mechanism cannot function independently but require process to interlink them or facilitate their functions. Furthermore, in an infinite cosmos, the process and mechanism have to be extremely dynamic, transformative, and efficient; otherwise no amount of functions and energy would suffice. In other words, process implies topology, structure, function, mechanism, and order.
For example, there are many mechanisms to build technology, however, processes are essential to facilitate such mechanisms. And these processes include topology, structures, functions, and order such as from product planning and marketing to research and development to manufacturing and test to sales and services. No product is possible without process. And is basically across living experience such as prepare a meal, write a scientific paper, and develop an experiment which all require interlink of actions from thinking to acting. A simple way of stating is mechanism implies process and process implies mechanism or process and mechanism are irreducible.
And an example of a process in the natural world would be: phase transition, criticality, symmetry or non-symmetry breaking, emergence. And which contain mechanism along the continuous process. Another way of saying is process and mechanism are irreducible.
And in nature, the process of emergence embedded within process of being and becoming contain many interdependent and interconnected processes and mechanisms as sum of parts of the greater whole process and mechanism. And in order for processes and mechanisms to interlink and function in an infinite cosmos, they have to be extremely dynamic, effective, and efficient. For example, long haul transmission of information is not possible based on conventional information science and technology. It is only possible through the science or mechanism of entanglement which is very dynamic and transformative. Furthermore, topology, structure, and order require processes and mechanisms that not only facilitate potentialities of possibilities but also safeguard the whole topology, structure, function, mechanism, and order. And such process can best be simplified as continuous process of intertwinement and entanglement in the local and no-local cosmos (from physics to chemistry to biology and beyond) based on the essence, nature, and ground of being. And essence, nature, and ground of nature since it is a self-assembled, self-organized, self-transformed, self-evolved, and self-optimized or self-realized and self-actualized universe. While the processes and mechanisms for technology and products are based on the current states of essence and nature of human species.
And therefore, gravity or a simple natural phenomena is far from adequate to give rise to life which give rise to or emergence of mind such as many sentient composite body-mind system. And as such, simply including or integrating the subtle body-mind or real self as parts of the many sentient composite body-mind system would greatly open insights and potentialities of possibilities into the epistemology and ontology of being and becoming. And help solve or transcend out of this world complexity since the interdependent and interconnectedness of nature processes and mechanisms from observable to subtle to hidden have meanings and purposes.
