Enformy is conserved. It is also intertransformable with energy and mass. Thus, energy, mass, and enformy are three distinct descriptors of the universe. Energy accounts for work, mass accounts for matter, and enformy accounts for organization.
The concept of enformy and its implications not only explains the occurrence of life, it resolves the classical mind/body problem, and predicts the occurrence of telepathy and "ghost" phenomena. Because it also applies to non-living systems, the concept resolves the mysteries of Schrodinger's cat of quantum mechanics and the principle of least action of classical mechanics. Thus, enformy provides a conceptual framework for integrating the physical, biological, and psychological sciences.
