Ursula and Ed,

It seems to me that “the reduction of biological life to mechanical systems” does not go deep enough into the underlying nature of what are described as “mechanical systems.” At the quantum levels, mechanical systems dissolve into energetic systems that seem to have an informing life-force or, as Ed writes, “biology will appear more as an intelligent life force.” We have far to go to understand the quantum dynamics beneath what are described as “mechanical systems.”
