"The Physics of Life illuminates the meaning of evolution in its broadest scientific sense and empowers the reader with a new view of the intertwined movement of all life -- evolution is more than biological. The same physical effect is present in all patterns and flows -- from population growth, to air traffic, to government expansion, to the urge for better ideas. Evolution is everywhere, and the same elegant principles of physics apply to all things. Every animal and human wants power. From power comes movement: body movement, internal flow (pumping blood, and air), external flow (locomotion, migration), and safety such as warmth, drinkable water, health and the construction of highways and steel beams that do not break when we walk or drive on them. The growth and spread of civilization is the flow of more power to more individuals, for greater movement. And everyone wants more power. That desire to improve, to organize, to join, to convince others and to affect change is a trait we all share, and the freedom to change is what makes all evolution not only possible but mandatory"--… (més)

Just a placeholder, but this looks like it's going to be great. Jared Diamond Guns Germs and Steel great. Richard Feynman great. Wheeler on Special Relativity great.

For Bejan, a specialist in engineering thermodynamics, it's all about not just things like water, heat and energy, but about their flows. Flows and channels. ( )

To live, or not to live, that is not even a question. Life is a universal tendency in nature. It is physical movement with the freedom to change.
Citacions

We are wedded to an incorrect, dichotomous understanding of life: natural vs artificial, animate vs inanimate, bio vs non-bio and nature vs nurture. Yet most of us are unaware that we are flowing together with so many like us. We are like the raindrops falling on the plain. The water must return to the air, and it manages to do so by flowing through many designs such as tree-shaped river basins, grazing and migrating animals, grasses, trees and forests, waves on the ocean, sand dunes, oceanic and atmospheric currents and disruptions caused by fallen trees and broken branches, all causing eddies, whirls and turbulence, all flowing and dying downstream. All this is life.
The talk about "sustainability" is popular today, but the discussion lacks a physics definition of the term and shows no interest in such rigor.
A basis in physics for why we needier is necessary, because today's focus on efficiency and conservation gives the false impression that the future requires burning less fuel, uniformity (those who burn more should burn less, and vice versa), and belt-tightening.
