This brief and simplified discernment is to further elaborate on the following research https://phys.org/news/2019-08-cells-emerged-blocks-proteins-stabilized.html :
Form-formless, whether non-living, living, non-sentient, or sentient have to conform to nature universal process of being and becoming https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-of-reality-and-truth/on-nature-life-and-existence-topology, https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-decode/on-sum-of-parts-of-the-greater-whole-philosophy-and-science, https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-decode/on-formation-and-transformation-of-cosmic-entity, https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-decode/quantum-and-relativity-sciences-as-functions-of-universal-wave-function-process (https://www.quantamagazine.org/the-universal-law-that-aims-times-arrow-20190801), https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/nature-decode/on-the-wave-function-of-the-universe. However, there are non-deterministic aspects such as environment, instinct, consciousness, intelligent, and awareness. And as such form-formless would manifest based on non-deterministic facilitated by deterministic aspects of nature universal laws.
A simple way of saying is the more and more sentient, and more and more conscious and aware species are; the more and more such species could shape their form-formless through resonating in meaningful ways with nature (with or without the use science and technology. Of course, would potentially be faster with science and technology. However, would be riskier depending on the applications). Another way of saying is the lesser and lesser species consciousness and awareness are, the more and more their evolution would depend on the environment or they have less free will (https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/local-and-non-local-blog/on-philosophy-and-science-of-free-will) and intelligent to shape and transform their form-formless. And which are reasons why cells form-formless basically stay more or less the same (i.e. even through their structures and genomes may vary or evolve) after billions years. And only really start to meaningfully evolve through multi-cells (https://www.quantamagazine.org/scientists-debate-the-origin-of-cell-types-in-the-first-animals-20190717). And which are why organisms have better form-formless evolution potential which lead to multi-organisms which have higher form-formless evolution potential. And which lead to extremely primitive species which lead to primitive species ... and so on ... and which eventually lead to primitive conscious species ... and so on ... and which lead to conscious species ... and so on ... which lead to conscious and aware species ... and so on.
And if one goes back to molecules (a recent exploration https://phys.org/news/2019-08-quantum-entanglement-chemical-reactions.html) and atoms, they are even more primitive. However, they are all essential aspects of parts of sum of parts of the evolution and emergence process as known on earth facilitated by nature universal process and mechanism. And should not confuse or perceive consciousness and awareness of the cosmos for molecules and atoms.
For example, science has now revealed many bio-transmutations processes and mechanisms (i.e. fractal interdependent and interconnected processes and mechanisms of the whole process and mechanism) such as plasticity, epigenetic (a recent discovery as an example https://www.technology.org/2019/08/07/beyond-dna) neurogenesis, mutation, metamorphosis, and morphogenesis which are not only physical but also mind dependent or causalities of both physical and mind (i.e. the physical and subtle body-mind are intertwined and entangled as parts of the many sentient composite body-mind system. And the physical body is mean to nurture, develop, transform, and purify the subtle body-mind). And which facilitate form-formless transformation and evolution through generational reproduction, ways of life, and practices (facilitate by nature or through the intertwinement and entanglement with and in the local and non-local cosmos as an illustration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVQ5iYvbb5c). And are not only based on individual but also the collective (i.e. beside generational bio-transmutations, morphogenesis is collective). And these potentialities of possibilities are impossible without the interdependent and interconnected wholeness transition self-assembled, self-evolved, and self-optimized process (facilitated by nature interdependent and interconnected fractal processes and mechanisms of sum of processes and mechanisms of the greater whole or unified universal process and mechanism) of spectra-field to quanta to atoms to molecules to RNA-DNA (a recent empirical data as an illustration https://phys.org/news/2019-08-counterintuitive-physics-property-widespread.html) to cells to multi-cells to organisms to multi-organisms to primitive species to more evolved species. And Metamorphosis process transition from many sentient composite body-mind system to immaterial or spirit-soul form-formless potentialities of possibilities. And which are facilitated by nature universal process and mechanism.
Furthermore, Metamorphosis (refer to past discernment) is the process and mechanism for evolution potentialities of possibilities beyond the known physical. And are interdependent and interconnected or intertwined and entangled process and mechanism between the physical world and beyond realms and world. And as well as a collective process (the word process also implies mechanism since without mechanism, there would not be process). Therefore, meaningful transformation and evolution or transition of individual and the collective to realm and world beyond the known physical world would not only better the individual and species but also the collective (of infinite other sentient in the cosmos or infinite fractal parts of sum of parts of the greater whole), and the whole potentialities of possibilities. For example, transcendence and spiritual experience would be more meaningful since the spiritual realms and worlds as well as the whole would be more evolved or increase knowledge, wisdom, and consciousness and awareness of the collective as previously mentioned. And vice versa. And these potentialities of possibilities are impossible without the interdependent and interconnected wholeness transition process (the whole is far greater than sum of its parts) of spectra-field to quanta to atoms to molecules to RNA-DNA to cells to multi-cells to organisms to multi-organisms to primitive species to more evolved species. And Metamorphosis process transition from many sentient composite body-mind system to immaterial or spirit-soul form-formless potentialities of possibilities. And which are facilitated by nature universal process and mechanism.
There are now much empirical data available through collective scientific discoveries and efforts (main stream and non main stream science. And as an illustration https://www.epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org/philosophy-and-science/on-wholeness-philosophy-and-science-of-evolution-and-emergence) over the past many centuries as had discerned in diverse ways in past discernments. However, they are fragmented and non-organized. If they are integrated and interpolated, extrapolated, and correlated, they would reflect or illustrate what are discerned here. And therefore, "Knowing Thyself" and "Knowing Nature" would better reveal what are determinism and non-determinism as well as what are in between these. And vice versa or knowing determinism and non-determinism as well as what are in between these would reveal thyself and nature. And which implies that raising consciousness and awareness are essential or discoveries, solutions, and meaningful transformation depend on meaningful transformation of consciousness and awareness of mind or formless (mind belongs to the subtle body). In brief and simple words, subtle body-mind emerged with more evolved species through the process of being and becoming. And of course are dependent of the physical body or form. And as had discerned in diverse ways in past discernments.
