This essay explores the problem od the implausibility of the emergence of consciousness from a non-conscious nature from the perspective of a powers ontology, arguing that since the matter constituting all the elements of the universe is homogeneous, mindedness must be a product of indeterminate processes, rather than a property of particular substances. The collection in which it is published (Advances in Consciousness Research vol.75) contains contributions by contemporary philosophers, neuroscientists, mathematical physicists.
