As the opposite of materialism, the philosophy of idealism held that consciousness, not matter, was the ultimate basis of reality. And once combined with a scientific understanding of evolution, Schelling realized, idealism would represent a force with which all serious thinkers of the Enlightenment would have to contend.
Those with a particular interest in the evolution of life forms always seem to begin from one massive and (arguably) unsupportable assumption: that matter preceded consciousness.
 John von Neumann's interpretation of quantum theory, the most strict interpretation, 
makes clear the necessity of an observing consciousness 
in order to make this physicality manifest.

When, pray tell does it begin?
