The physical universe is reduced by physical science — spatialized or geometrized — to a whole within which different isolable systems arise — like our solar system — but they can have reality only as they are parts of the whole within which are no real creatrcie or objects, only the whole.

Neither the explanation of the Darwinians who appeal to chance variations chosen by natural selection, nor the operation of the external cause of light itself, nor the inheritance of acquired characteristics which have arisen out of the effects of the form itself, can satisfactorily account for the appearance of so complex an organism in so divergent forms under so diverse conditions.
