What is the difference between intelligence and structure? Obviously you can't have intelligence without structure can you? In fact that's all intelligence is -- or, let's say derived from -- a highly advanced form of structure. Indeed, without the stucture of the human brain, the most advanced structure we're aware of, we would not be able to maintain our intelligence. And yet what is structure, except that which is most basic and essential to the Universe as a whole? In other words, is there anything about the Universe which is not structured? I think science would have to answer that with an emphatic "no." Or else what are they doing looking for "structure" in all things? So, what else are we to conclude, except that intelligence is the highest outcropping of structure to the Universe? Hmm ... Which of course brings up the notion that the Universe is intelligent or, perhaps intelligently designed. Is such a thing possible? Well, at the very least, we have to admit that it is so-arranged (structured) to support intelligence. Whereas the only means we have by which to verify this is through intelligence, our own. Indeed. So, we have structure producing intelligence, and intelligence acknowledging structure. What could seem more natural than that? ... Could it be that the whole thing has come full circle and, that intelligence has in fact begotten intelligence? It wouldn't be the first time the Universe has demonstrated an ability to replicate itself. In fact it happens all the time. Which would also imply that it was part of its inherent design.
