In a book called What is life? the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger ask himself why we don't perceive atoms, and says:
The reason for this is, that what we call thought is itself an orderly thing, and can only be applied to material, i.e. to perceptions or experiences, which have a certain degree of orderliness.
From that he derives:
- As thought is an ordered thing the brain must be also an ordered thing.
- That there must be an order outside so, as atoms move caotically, we can't perceive them.
In other words, internal order of the organism implies that we can not perceive a single atom.
I have never heard an argument like that, i.e, that thought implies internal and external order.
Do you have any argument or know any text about this issue?
