All irreversible processes, including life, arise, persist, and proliferate to produce entropy. It is the dissipation of a generalized thermodynamic potential that is important in driving life, not finding a clever route to channeling energy into some kind of self-indulgence … Continue reading
Understanding the thermodynamic function of life may shed light on its origin. Life, as are all irreversible processes, is contingent on entropy production. Entropy production is a measure of the rate of the tendency of Nature to explore available microstates. … Continue reading
