Ursula and Jon,

 

We have the foundations for an interesting discussion! I’m just heading out the door for several days of traveling and speaking and won’t be able to reply immediately. However, for various “flavors” of materialism, I find the discussion in Wikipedia interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Materialism (although I realize that for many scientists, this is a suspect source). When I have more time, I will be exploring, for example, David Christian’s definition of the universe used in Big History for comparisons.
