  • Living matter is solemnly perceived as an embodiment of ultimate order that neither centuries long studies nor imagination can fully grasp. Yet, disorder is its necessary component in an intricate interplay between life’s actors from the highest level of populations, all the way to molecules. An intriguing thought is that life emerged from disorder. Reasoning around this starting point, the authors, however, come to a rather dialectic picture of never-ending alternations of the order and… CONTINUE READING
