Hello Albert,

Yes, am inclined to agree with your line of thought - and other
folk were thinking that way too. Here's some quotes, in no
particular order

"there is a grand design in the Universe that favours the
development of intelligent life" --John D. Barrow & Frank J.
Tipler in 'The Anthropic Cosmological Principle'

"To my way of thinking, there is still something mysterious
about evolution, with its apparent 'groping' towards some future
purpose. Things at least seem to organize themselves somewhat
better than they 'ought' to, just on the basis of blind-chance
evolution and natural selection." -- Roger Penrose - 'The
Emperor's New Mind' - 1989

"in brief, classical Darwinism is no longer considered valid by
qualified biologists" -- Norman Macbeth   (p. 5 of 'Darwin
Retried' 1971)

"An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us
now, could only state that, in some sense, the origin of life
appears at the moment to be almost a miracle." -- Francis Crick
- p. 88 'Life Itself, Its Origin and Nature' (1981)

"The Darwinian theory is wrong and the continued adherence to it
is an impediment to discovering the correct evolutionary theory"
--Fred Hoyle - 'Mathematics of Evolution' 1987

"we must therefore admit the possibility that, if we are not the
highest intelligences in the universe, some higher intelligence
may have directed the process by which the human race was
developed, by means of more subtle agencies than we are
acquainted with" --A R Wallace

Those thoughts, on evolution, seem to follow your reasoning.

With regard to the (local?) structure of the universe - and the
problems of matter, mass and inertia - Planck was quite

"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force
which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this
most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume
behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent
mind. ..." -- Max Planck - Das Wesen der Materie [The Nature of
Matter], speech at Florence, Italy (1944)

The data, some mainstream some more advanced, tend to make me
side with Planck, he might indeed be right.  Only I'd maybe,
when thinking about it, put that in the plural - as "conscious
and intelligent minds".

Cheers Ray D
