The chromosomes are indeed highly structured, as are the cell organelles, the chemical substrates, and the extracellular environment. Emphasis on the structure in the genome without full acknowledgment of structure in the surround is common. Gould (1977, pp. 21-2) claims that the preformationist critique of epigenesis is still valid: if the egg is “truly unorganized, how could it yield such consistent complexity without a directing entelechy. ” Preformationists and epigeneticists agreed that a formless egg required form from without.

A seed may remain dormant for years, and though plants frequently show this kind of developmental passivity,6 it is observed among animals as well (Clutter, 1978). The seed “initiates” a period of growth when it is triggered by some change. Genes affect biological processes because they are reactive, and this reactivity is a prime characteristic of our world, at all levels of analysis, from the subatomic through the social to the astronomical. T o describe biological processes as the product of exchanges of energy, matter, and information, while consistent with the temper of the times, is misleading in seeming to postulate a third, quasiphysical force at work in the world.
