Link: The Universe Is Biophilic?

> According to physicist Jeremy England, the origin and evolution of life are processes driven by the fundamental laws of nature — namely the Second Law of Thermodynamics. He’s come up with a formula showing how a group of atoms, when driven by an external source of energy (like the sun) and when surrounded by a heat bath (like the ocean or atmosphere), can sometimes restructure itself as a way to dissipate increasing rates of energy. ([io9][])

I wonder how far of a leap it is from this kind of notion of evolution of order to the kind of order we call culture?
