is the question asked by the physicist Erwin Schrodinger in his book ‘What is
Life?’ In chapter 1. Schrödinger explains that most physical laws on a large
scale are due to chaos on a small scale. He calls this principle
focuses on one important question:
can the events in space and time which take place within the spatial boundary
of a living organism be accounted for by physics and chemistry? Schrödinger
concludes that the complexity of life cannot be totally explained by classical
physics, but is due to the discrete nature of quantum mechanics.
chapter VI Schrödinger states:
matter, while not eluding the "laws of physics" as established up to
date, is likely to involve "other laws of physics" hitherto unknown,
which however, once they have been revealed, will form just as integral a part
of science as the former.”
this theory the fundamental nature of the Universe is a process of spherical
symmetry forming and breaking relative to the atoms of the periodic table.
is madness to think that organization could form out of chaos and disorder, but
it is logical that such beauty could form with the disorder and chaos of
everyday life out of a process of symmetry forming and breaking!
