A Rayleigh-Benard cell, convection current and a human are all related as dissipative structures. The emergence of dissipative structures from “chaos” seems mostly to be a linking phenomenon between high pressure heated zones and colder zones perhaps with distributive convection currents. The dissipative structure exists because it more rapidly equalizes temperature differences between zones than if accomplished by random molecular collision. Structures that may occur spontaneously between zones of different temperature may be recapitulated in kind but not in detail. A hurricane linking warm ocean waters and the cold, high troposphere is a similar phenomenon.
Are humans truly similar to these other categories of thermal phenomena? Undoubtedly they’re related, but it seems that humans and other life have arisen not solely to equalize thermal gradients but rather to equalize or reduce chemical energy gradients with infrared radiation as a product of exothermic reactions. Molecules with precise and rapid electromagnetic bonding to energy rich prey molecular species would be selected for by evolution. Energy freed from enzyme like attack of molecular species could provide energy for the anabolic activities of an early RNA or ribozyme, especially in its own reproduction. Such a chemical gradient reducer would have eventually created information like DNA and would have enclosed its metabolism within protective cellular confines.
Although human cell aggregates (humans) still break-down chemical gradients by devouring and digesting massive chunks of cells of other species, they have through the chance combination of brain, vision and hand-freeing upright postural adaptations, among others, come to imagine, produce and wield various enhancing tools. Although a sharp spear does not electromagnetically seek the flank of a bison, like a highly evolved enzyme seeks a substrate, it has much the same effect. The human RNA, like the cell, also evolved so as to save the specifications for its tools in various forms of information and to enclose its technological metabolism within homeostasis maintaining cells or factories.
The conversion of humans to dedicated RNA has continued and accelerated with the creation of a resilient corpus of information that could be passed from generation to generation and be worked upon to achieve more effective tools. The resulting tools have been very effective in breaking into new energy gradients that were indigestible by unaided humans but useful in their combustion for heat, cooking and later for providing the motive force to various complex technological tools comprising many parts and which could be employed in amplifying the digestible types of foods for humans.
Although the technological developments have seemed very beneficial to humans, allowing them to use new, more resilient materials and chemical species, all is not well in paradise. To varying degrees, the technological system is toxic to the biological one and the energy gradients upon which it feeds are finite. Will the humans adapt and create technological RNA replacements so that the evolution may continue without consideration of ecosystem damage or will technology be limited to stay within safe bounds for ecosystem health. It seems that some technological human RNA, having mentally divorced themselves from the ecosystem, may prefer the path of saving their technology even though it may result in their own extinction. It may be that evolving technological systems no longer serve the interests of their primitive organic RNA humans, but rather competes against them or curtails the scope of human lives in its own interest. Recently it has even been suggested that humans need chips implanted in their brains in order to adequately interface with their rapidly evolving technological tools.
In general it seems that organic cell RNA perform relatively simple, repetitive tasks as compared to the enzyme tools they construct from the DNA template. Humans lament their own self-destruction but continue on the path, even fooling themselves that their “souls” will be transferred to the new replacement technological systems that will somehow live forever. Other anachronistic, legacy predatory and competitive behaviors, still extant in the human RNA brains, may make any further considerations of technological evolution moot as the current collection of war tools is more than adequate for ending any further technological advancement.
