Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
The human experience exists as a fleeting epiphenomenon emerging from the dynamic interaction of diverse interrelated systems. Each individual exists at the nexus of physical and meta-physical networks; among others, genetic, chemical, biological, cultural and social structures define our existence and connect us with other humans in the past and present and with the environment surrounding our bodies. Information and energy are transferred between the environment and each individual and in the context of molecular and neurological processes, among nodes in the interior of each individual. The boundary between individual and environment begins to appear constructed and trivial in the context of these pervasive systemic connections both within and without the human form. Can the conception of an individual as an autonomous entity be reconciled with this concept of epiphenomenon of a distributed network of interrelated systems? Can free will be attributed to this system we call human? The work currently in progress explores these issues. More information is also available under www.marcusahlers.com
