                     Marks                                                                     Themes

                    00:00      Ech science represents only one view of reality. A tool is needed to understand the whole. 

                    04:22     The problem of understanding reality.

                    32:05     All living systems contain some anticipatory ability.

                    36:12    Anticipation and consciousness.

                    40:36   Anticipation predisposes an organism to react on what may happen.

                    43:08     Is ontology not in itself reductionistic?
