Abstract

Biological evolution is characterized by a creativity of structures and species, being the product of 4,600 million years of co-evolution of interrelated complex histories. Clonation tends to render pieces of life the same for man's utility and therefore works in an opposite direction to the history of our planet. The models of genetic engineering are based on molecular reductionism, the absence of time (they are reversible) and a hidden ideology (the so called "pensiero unico"): the sole purpose of utility to man. The development of evolutionary models and of eco-informatics to study the complexity of evolving ecosystems is needed to respond to the ongoing attack on nature by modem technologies, our insane manner of producing and consuming and the hidden ideology of homologation to "pensiero unico". Evolutionary models and eco-informatics need to be: a) systemic and not reductionist, modelling relations and not single molecular structures or single biological species; b) irreversible in the thermodynamic sense explained by Prigogine, so as, to reflect the intrinsic evolutionary properties of ecosystems and living systems; c) integrated, so as to reflect the various "Gestalt" or points of view (epistemological, thermodynamic, biological, eco-economic,...). They also need to consider the sustainability of development, environmental constraints and diversity (biological, cultural and social) of the various geographical areas. What applies to the Atlantic does not necessarily hold for the Mediterranean.
