Winston Ewert recently published a paper in BIO-Complexity suggesting that life is better explained by a dependency graph than by a phylogenetic tree.
A dependency graph is not any old ad hoc hypothesis. It was posited because it is something that we observe in software engineering.
Ewert proposes that life is best explained not by Darwin’s hypothesis of an ancestry tree, but by a modern design-inspired hypothesis.
I am intrigued, but to be honest, I don’t quite know what to make of it just yet, and don’t want to jump to any conclusions.
