生命浑沌老化Life Chaos Entropy Ageing



“Yì jīng • qián guà”: “`Qián dào biànhuà, gè zhèng xìngmìng. The chaotic pathways change. The life may transform.” Life is an innate gift to all things in a philosophy mettle talent. The topic of life is still a sentient question since the beginning of mankind’s history. Where life can be born, how to die of life, the life on all scales of its phenomenon of human being can be said to be the most complexity, but in essence may also be the most simple, so the answer of life can be from the life itself. The continuous accumulation of quality can make crushable gravity and destroy all the material. Why human beings can be in the chaos of the critical margin and take all the benefits as well as play the appropriate role in the infinite energy absorbers? The order is a prerequisite for the stability of the genes expression, but the motion of the body and the energy metabolism are in the process of chaos creation. Developing towards the lowest entropy growth rate of the state has become the only choice for life stability. The activity of the body makes negative entropy to resist equilibrium entropy, and only the system is guided to the biggest entropy growth rate in final equilibrium state, which is a means of death. In such a corollary that ageing may not be the time scale about the length, it is a point of view about the latitude and longitude of the vector space. When life is close to the final equilibrium state, the body will be guided to the lowest rate of entropy accumulation. This means no marginal effect, no adaptation, no confusion, and of course, there is no possibility of developing life diversity, and so, what has gone no longer comes back again.
