Computing science is used as one of the best arguments within reductionism. The more computers are able to produce complex structures, the more dethroned seems human mind and life.
Interpretations of physical phenomena such as dissipative structures, unpredictable structures like Bernard-cells, autocatalytic reactions and their computerbased modeling seems to point to a pure naturalistic understanding of human life. I want to show that this is not correct on basis of a philosophical understanding of life, individuality and mind. This subject needs to clarify the task of philosophy, the inferences to mind structure and the conclusions for life and identity.
