Thank you so much for your insights and for the example of Newton!
It seems to me that the will to live is field-like in its behavior, i.e. fecundity principle or life principle. The universe, biosphere, collectives of organism, individual organisms, functions within organism and individual cells all struggle to survive and hierarchically at that.
The functions of an organism (e.g. cardiovascular) cooperate and the organism survives, individual organisms (e.g. army ants) cooperate and the collective survives, etc.
This behavior is also mentioned in Romans 8, the willful creature.
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now Romans 8:19-22
If there exists such a field it is likely expanded from the big bang instead of compactified (Kaluza/Klein) in which case, the math would be akin to this: Five dimensional relativity and two times
It may be inter-dimensional as Lisa Randall suggests gravity might be.
Any hoot, thats what I would expect.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
I read Lisa's book last year. It was quite instructive on branes and possible mediators or communications between branes. I use bits here and there in That's In The Bible?, especially in the section I did on Daniel chapter five, the handwriting on the wall scene.
