In existographies, Francoise Tibika (0- AE) (1955- ACM) (LH:#) is an Algerian-born French-Jewish chemist and metaphysical philosopher, noted for her 2005 to present attempt to stitch out a chemical and thermodynamical type of neo-vitalism, hinged around Prigogine's 1980s models of molecules talking to each other at the chemical level, which she outlines in her 2010 Molecular Consciousness: Why the Universe is Aware of Our Presence, which attempts to argue that molecules are conscious.


In 1986, Tibika met Colette Muscat (1909-2003)[1], daughter of neurosurgeon Henri Aboulker (1876-1957)[2], who taught her about "guided imagery"[3], which is some kind meditation technique, themed on some sort of new age "spiritual psychodynamics". This convinced Tibika that she could mix chemistry, with Prigoginean thermodynamics, with Jewish spiritualism, so to extend of the so-called "power of the mind" on the "trajectory of molecules", or something along these lines.

In 2005, Tibika, in her “A Matter of Life: Hypothesis on the Role of Electron Waves in Creating Order Out of Chaos”, building on Alexander Oparin, Ilya Prigogine, Jacques Monad, and Shneior Lifson (1997)[4], attempt to sketch out a molecule communicating with each other via waves associated with their electrons theory; the following are a few quotes:[5]

“Thanks to Prigogine, in the passage from matter to life, there was no question of jumping from one reality to another. Continuity between inert matter and the living realm was established, Darwin’s evolution theory could be ‘stretched’ to Mendeleev’s table, and Oparin’s [anti-vitalism] statement returned to its proper place.”
— Francoise Tibika (2005), “A Matter of Life” (pg. 270)
“Prigogine said that this organization is the result of communication between molecules. Our hypothesis is that, if communication between molecules indeed exists, it is accomplished through the wave associated with their electrons.”
— Francoise Tibika (2005), “A Matter of Life” (pg. 272)

She the discusses the wave mechanics of Louis Broglie, Erwin Schrodinger, and Werner Heisenberg, and also what Einstein, Planck, and Max Born said about this.

In 2010, Tibika, in her Molecular Consciousness: Why the Universe is Aware of Our Presence, building on her 2005 article, attempts to argue that some sort of consciousness exists at the molecular level; the following is the abstract:[6]

“The molecules of living organisms are in constant communication, storing and transmitting information both at the intracellular level as well as across vast distances. The mystery of how this communication occurs—whether through molecular structure, chemical reactions, entangled states, or some other method—has baffled biologists, chemists, and quantum physicists for more than a century. Revealing the intimate connections between mind and matter, Françoise Tibika explains that conscious communication exists all the way down to the very molecules of which we—and the universe—are made. Using the fundamental laws of thermodynamics to support her argument—especially the first law: ‘energy is neither created nor destroyed’—as well as modern scientific research in quantum physics and molecular biology, Tibika explores how each imperishable atom of the universe is intrinsically linked with all other atoms through their memories and the information they carry. She shows not only how each atom of your being is part of the greater whole of the universe but also how your thoughts, feelings, and state of mind are profoundly related to the activity of each of your molecules. Just as we are undergoing constant transformation by the molecules surrounding us, our own molecules are continuously transforming the network of which we are a part.”

One nice point about her book is that when she talks about "information", she does not cite "Shannon", which is good. She simply understands entropy according to Clausius, Boltzmann, and Planck.

In 2013, Tibika did a one-hour video interview with Iain McNay, on the YouTube Channel Conscious TV, in London.[7]

Beliefs | Religion

Tibika grew up with a Jewish father who impressed strong views about god being a part of everything upon her. In her published works and interview, Tibika seems to come across as a secular-inclining chemist, with latent quasi metaphysical spiritual chemistry belief system, with god as an ontic opening found or operating in the way molecules "communicate" with each other, at the electron level, defined in some kind of quantum mechanical way, or something to this affect.


Tibika completed her BS (1974) in chemistry, MS (1979) in chemistry, and PhD (1986) in chemistry, with thesis on “Inorganic Synthesis”, under Avi Bino, all at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.[8] Presently, she is part of a research group of the chemistry department of Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


Quotes | By

The following are quotes:

“With each chemical reaction, molecules leave a past they cannot return to. The entropy of the universe will never again be what it was yesterday. When you dissolved your sugar in your coffee this morning, you contributed to the increase of the entropy of the universe, and, without noticing it, you continued to do so all day. If data on the entropy state of the universe could be recorded at the precise time of historical events, it would be easy, without even knowing what they were, to order these events chronologically. The one whose entropy is the lowest would be the oldest, and the one with the highest entropy would be the most recent. The direction of time is always from the lower to higher entropy. Matter is said to carry itself the ‘arrow of time’, an arrow that shows the direction of time, an arrow that would have been launched at the very moment of the birth of our universe, and which, since then, nothing and no one can stop.”
