Life in the Multiverse
Living organisms are controlled by a single molecule - DNA. Yet the study of physics tells us that the behaviour of single molecules is controlled not by classical laws but by the strange laws of quantum mechanics. The implications of this for biology have never been fully explored. Until now. In this book, Johnjoe McFadden puts forward a theory of quantum evolution. He shows how quantum mechanics gives living organisms the ability to initiate specific actions including new mutations. Indeed, such an ability may be life's most fundamental attribute. This simple but staggering theory has radical implications. Evolution may not be random at all, as evolutionary theorists have taught recently - rather it may be directed - cells may, in certain circumstances, be able to choose to mutate particular genes that provide an advantage in the environment in which the cell finds itself.
