Imagine that you have a flask full of some molecules that move randomly and you add external energy. Let’s also assume that the molecules are a little bit sticky and they attach to each other for a while. What you will see after a while is areas of clumps and dead space. That is how disorder looks.
Now suppose the observer is a group of clumps. The observer may think that the purpose of this environment is to create clumps like him that die and get reborn. He be like: Hey, isn’t this place supposed to be a total chaos if you take into account the initial ingredients and the conditions? But that’s his false narrative.
We now know that:
1)All life relates to each other and an organism exist, because of...all the other life that exist.
2)All life is related to each other and if you consider life as a whole thing, it becomes a more disordered thing.
3)The number of chemical interactions in living systems is unimaginably large. The numbers are so vast, our intuition cannot grasp.
4)Similar systems under the same laws of nature will lead to similar results that can be perceived as periodic phenomena.
5)We ourselves are composed from tons of chemical reactions and we are a part of the resulting reactions of life, so we observe the system from an insider perspective.
Do the similarities between the two systems suggest that we should be cautious when we arbitrarily refer to life systems as order-generating without actually measuring their entropic changes first??
