From the academy

Some more heavy lifting, this time by a guy named Attila Grandpierre in the journal Ultimate Reality and Meaning in 2002, "The Fundamental Principles of Existence and the Origin of Physical Laws".

Here's the abstract, see if you can wrap your brain around this one:
In this essay the ontological structure of reality is explored. The question of reducibility of biology to physics is considered in the context of their ultimate principles. It is shown that biology is an ontologically autonomous science and is based on its own, independent ultimate principle that is independent from that of physics. In the next step it is shown that self-consciousness represents a separate realm with its own, ontologically autonomous, ultimate principle. Understanding that reality is based on ultimate principles, a new possibility arises to interpret the origin of physical laws.


Here's the paper
