Syntropy and Living Systems

How might we design living systems that increase syntropy rather than participate in building more efficient entropy machines to exterminate and replace life on Earth?

Without realizing it, humanity has been working on a global project of accelerating the process of entropy, which is reversing billions of years of physical, chemical, and biological evolution that has resulted in the process of life, a phenomenon of negative entropy.

“It seems fitting that some of the most important insights in exploring these hidden principles of nature have come from scientists who had the courage to cross over from one specialty to another. One of these was Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger, who won a Nobel Prize for his work on quantum theory, then ventured into the fundamentals of biology, publishing a seminal book in 1944 entitled What Is Life? Schrödinger's groundbreaking answer to this age-old question began with the second law of thermodynamics, which states that the universe is undergoing an irreversible process of entropy: an inexorable decline from order to disorder. This law predicts that heat will always flow to cooler regions and explains why, once you've beaten an egg, you can never get the yolk back. However, Schrödinger observed that while the universe as a whole undergoes entropy, life somehow manages to reverse this process. Living organisms, he noted, survive through sucking order out of the entropy around them and organizing it in a way beneficial to them. They do this through the process known in biology as metabolism. Schrödinger called this process negative entropy (or negentropy) and saw it as the defining characteristic of life.”

How might we actively participate in the emergent phenomenon of the process of syntropy and life that we are engaging in, to reverse the entropic industrialized, mechanized, digitized, artificially intelligent engine of global neo-liberal colonization and capitalism?

私は知性の性質について同様の考えを持っています。混沌を理解するために、私たちは主張をします。たとえば、同じビーンズの2つの山。 1つは夕食、もう1つは夕食と呼びます。それぞれの主張は言葉であり、現実、粒子を量子化します。 次に、アサーションを文に構成し、プロセスと時間の概念を作成します。つまり、アサーションは粒子であり、何度も繰り返され、頭の中にqmモデルがあります。 Imo、それがqmの性質であり、カオスを量子化するために名前を付ける必要があります。したがって、qmは頭蓋骨の現実の投影です。

I have similar thoughts about nature of intellegence. We make assertions, to make sense of chaos. Eg, two piles of identical beens. One we call dinner, another supper. Each assertion is a word, quantizing the reality, a particle. Then we compose assertions into sentences, creating processes and notion of time. So, assertions are particles and on and on, and we have a qm model in our head. Imo, thats the nature of qm, our need to name things, to quantize the chaos. So, qm is a projection of reality on our skull.

--jspoet,

アーウィンが持っていたなんて奇妙な認識。私が自然を観察すると、生命はより多くの生命を生み出し、常に拡大することであるように思われ、廃棄物でさえエネルギーに再利用され、それが再び生命に燃料を供給します。

そして、私はカオスからそれが秩序、新しい生き物、新しい生命に自己組織化すると言うでしょう...

What a weird perception Erwin had. If I observe nature, life seems to be about creating more life, always expanding, and even waste is reused for energy which then fuels life again.

And I'd say from the Chaos it self-organises into Order, new creatures, new life...
