To Tim Freeman on relevance of the "life force" to science:

Many scientific questions, when examined, come out of such philosophical
speculations. They result from an attempt to make such ideas detailed and
complete rather than vague allusions to something or other.

The increasing interest among neurophysiologists in understanding 
"awareness" gives a living example right now that you can see happening
before you.

So no, just because it smells of philosophy doesn't mean it should be
excluded outright at all!
				Best and long life
