human brains can solve problems that could not possibly have been anticipated in the genetic code
My understanding is that the only thing the genetic code actually does is program protein synthesis. Do you know of good evidence that it does more than that? Rupert Sheldrake in "A New Science of Life" suggested that there are "Morphic Fields" that cause living tissues to take the forms that they do. Such fields may explain protein folding too. Surely DNA doesn't cause consistent protein folding patterns. Does it?

a generalization of their behavior that inserts intentionality into a mechanical process.
I think you mean "a generalization of their behavior that [wrongly attributes] intentionality [to] a mechanical process."

The essential premise is that we, as biological organisms, receive information from the external world, process it, and then issue actions back into that world, which alter the conditions affecting us.
I have a different perspective. We're not "organisms". We're consciousness & subconsciousness that has caring, intention and decision. Consciousness consists of Perception, Thought and Emotion. Subconsciousness includes Memory and Will. Information exists in our Memory, not in an "external world". The "external world" consists only of our own Perceptions. The "external world" exists as virtual reality in our Memory and Perceptions. "God" is universal consciousness/subconsciousness. Instead of consciousness consisting of matter/energy/space, it seems more plausible that matter/energy/space consists of consciousness. Also, Caring seems to be the "Creator", the cause of everything, including consciousness/subconsciousness.
