What is life – lecture: A new theory for evolution. Speaker: Jeremy England, MIT.

“The formula, based on established physics, indicates that when a group of atoms is driven by an external source of energy (like the sun or chemical fuel) and surrounded by a heat bath (like the ocean or atmosphere), it will often gradually restructure itself in order to dissipate increasingly more energy. This could mean that under certain conditions, matter inexorably acquires the key physical attribute associated with life.” https://www.quantamagazine.org/20140122-a-new-physics-theory-of-life/
