There are two types of intelligent design theory:
1)Subscribing to Allopoiesis and
2)Subscribing to Autopoiesis.
Allopoiesis is the process whereby a system produces something other than the system itself. What best describes this system is creationism. God (one system) creates the world and man (another system).
Autopoiesis is a bit more complex. It describes a self contain system which causes its own design and its own species specific reality. The system (living organism)is a learned response. The relationship between the species reality and and system can best be described as causalistic (cause and effect).
The Autopoiesic Intelligent Design Theory. First describes an Intelligent Absolute Reality which is typically termed "mind". From the mind emerges thought. The thought process causes relative reality. Relative reality means that nothing in a conceptual state can exist unless its attributes can be compared. We are not able to define anything in existence unless we compare attributes. There is simply no self-dependant existence. For example, the term ABSOLUTE ZERO has no meaning unless there is something more or less than absolute zero. The term "Stop" has no meaning unless it is referenced. And so on.
According to this Autopoiesic ID viewpoint, the mind is non-local. The word "existence" cannot apply to the mind because it is considered uncaused.
One you understand the basis of this theory format you can find evidence, and more importantly practically in the field of health.
