FOREWORD
This is a collection of essays with a variety of
contents: theories, hypothesis, science fiction, remarks,
comments, talks --- with topics ranging in natural science
and social science. It is more philosophic than scientific.
It aims on the purpose of describing an outline for a
modern and rational world view. A world view serves as
a framework for ones knowledge and directs ones
ideology. It is not a specific knowledge or skill you can
make a living out of, but without a rational world view
one cannot say he leads a quality life.
If you have a child, it is important to teach him
principles, disciplines and responsibilities, but never try to
restrict his imagination and initiative, because that is
where the hope is. This principle not only applies to a
family but also to a society.
Let thoughts free and fly in the sky like a bird, and
some day they will come back to the ground and free our
body and soul from the imprisonment of their physical
restrictions and take them with them to the deep space
towards the magnificent eternity.
To push information evolution as far as possible
under given conditions, the author used imagination rather
than strict scientific methods. Beware there are loads of
mistakes and fallacies; but also some useful information
the author step on giants shoulders to present. In the
authors logic, 99% mistakes, 1% contribution, will worth
it.

The so many so called laws made up in this book


are meant a bit of inspiration rather than impose ideas on
scientific society. The author did not employstrict
scientific methods in this book so do not obliged to take
scientific responsibility nor scientific accreditation. The
authors respect is on the scientific society it is them
doing hard work and making solid progress.
In the later editions the author will talk more about
social issues which cause concern.
Science philosophy is the ultimate foundation of
the rational ideology which our world view build on and it
is this world view which will direct our values, principles
and strategies which will lead us to the far future or doom
us sooner than we expected. Science philosophy is linked
to our society, our behaviour. If we want to plan a future
we cannot avoid talking about it and we have to get it
right anyway. Since last edition of this book, scientists
and engineers, especially NASA scientists and engineers,
have made great discoveries and based on their
achievements the author has to adjust, modify and correct
his views, statements accordingly to approach the truth
one step further though he know he will never reach the
absolute truth.Also the author has to acknowledge the
contributions of the tax payers that make NASAs
discoveries and progress possible and in turn, make the

IS THERE AN END OF THE WORLD?


------------- THE UNIVERSE WILL NOT
HAVE A HEAT DEATH
The universe has no environment; its environment
is itself. In the universe, mass-energy transformation
movement is proceeding on anywhere and anytime. So it
abides by the law of conservation of matter (conservation
of mass-energy), but the first* and second law of
thermodynamics* are not applicable to it. Of course this
is speaking of the universe as whole (when conditions
attached to these two pieces of laws, they can be applied
universally).
Recent years, scientific society had made great
discoveries and progress. They provide many vivid
pictures of the universe in billions of light years range and
they made TV programmes to explain to us the secrets of
the universe. So here based on their teachings the author
can depictthe world in a sketch:red shift is caused by
energy loss when light travel through space. So there is no
space dilation and in turn there is no big crunch and no
big bang. NASAs pictures showed us that far or near,
long time ago or recently, the universe is full of energy
rich matter and in the universe matter is quite evenly
distributed. Their pictures showed in vivid detail how the
mighty super black hole is jetting out enormous energy
rich matter and high energy electromagnetic wave beams
hundreds of light years away through both sides of its
poles of electromagnetic field. This is a live show of large
scale mass-energy transformation. This mass-energy

Seeking Answers

transformation is a continuous processes which mean it is


an effective mass-energy transformation process and in
the meantime much more benign than a big bang to life.
Though when black hole bite a chunk too big for it to
comfortably swallow it may give a terrible bang which
might be able to wipe out lives light years range nearby
but it is still much more benign than a Big Bang.It means
the threshold for lifes long term survival is much lower
than we think before.It opened the possibility for life to
accumulate and preserve its own evolution achievements
to high levels.
Black holes are such powerful entities but they are
very stable structures in the meantime. Extreme gravity
and electromagnetic field holds the extreme heat and
pressure and great centrifugal force created by the
extreme fast spin of matter. It takes in matter, process
them and jet out matter in huge quantity. But somehow by
some mechanisms it can keep its own structure and
function in a dynamic balance. This is a nature made
super Tokomak combined with super compressor; its
purpose is to recycle energy depleted matter (evolution
waste) and produce energy rich matter for matter
evolution processes to continue (the product of this
evolution processes is effective information). This is
actually the mode of motion of matter, the mode of
existence of matter. Nature is benign, nature is beautiful,
and natures laws are beautiful. That is because nature is
governed by its own laws and these laws bring absolute
order.
There are no space dilation, no heat death. This
world is endless, timeless and restless. There is always

Seeking Answers

hope, there is alwaysbeauty. What is the most dangerous


thing in the universe? Ourselves. We can destroy
ourselves more easily than anything else in the world.
The entropy of the matter under normal conditions
is increasing.
Entropys increasing is the natural
tendencyunder normal conditions, because when entropy
is increasing, the structure of matter will be more stable
(does not matter in which level). For instance, when
energy is condensed into mass, this first mass still
contains massive energy. Whenever there is the chance, it
tends to release the energy, so that its structure will be in
a thermodynamically more stable state. And as energy is
released grade by grade, the structure of matter will be
more and more stable level by level. Einsteins massenergy relation formula E=mc, expressed the relationship
of mutual transformation between mass and energy.
A black hole exchanges matter (mass and energy)
with its outside world, self-organizes (has negative
entropy), huge fluctuates (sometimes bang, and can come
back to normal), far from equilibrium (does not have heat
death). Has all the characteristic features of an open
system and dissipative structure* in the meantime it also
is a concentrative structure. It can organise matter into the
largest concentration possible into a finite space to form a
mighty structure to create the extreme conditions to
perform mass-energy transformation. It is an open system;
its existence state is a combination of dissipative structure
and concentrative structure. It is alive. Together with
its own galaxythat nurtured them, they form the basic
mass-energy transformation unit in the universe; it is the
cell of the universe. Galaxies are born uninterruptedly and

Seeking Answers

dying unceasingly. But in the universe there are always


full of such livinglygalaxies. One galaxys death means
anothers birth. So, as far as the universe is concerned,
life is eternal, and the disaster of heat death caused by
entropy ever growing will never happen. Mass-energy
transformation is the basic mode of motion of matter, and
it is accompanied by the increasing or decreasing of
entropy. As long as there is the movement of massenergy transformation, the movement of entropy will not
be able to keep one direction for ever.
The galaxy with super big black hole jet out
energy rich matter much more violently than average
sized ones. And it jet out energy rich matter so far away
from its own gravitational centre. Maybe that is one of the
mechanisms that regulating the size of the galaxies so that
nothing can keep swallow the world for ever.
When question is discussed to this point, what we
are more concerned with is that: will our human have to
follow the changes of the existence states of our massenergy transformationunit to live and die or is it possible
for us to escape the seemingly doomed catastrophe and
survive the recurrent selection of the universe and
sublimate our lives to a higher existence state? Please
read next article Go for Eternal Life - Position of Life in
the Universe.
It is necessary for us to have a generally correct
notion for universe, human future, and human mission.
This will prove to be helpful for setting up a positive and
correct philosophy of life and world outlook. And this in
turn will direct our strategy of survival and behaviour and

which will in turn decide we will ruin our future or save


it.

1.
The first law of thermodynamics:
conservation of energy. (This is a relative law)
2.
The second law of thermodynamics (stated
in terms of entropy): The total entropy of the universe
does not change when a reversible process occurs ( S
Universe = 0) and increases when an irreversible process
occurs ( S Universe> 0).(This is a relative law)
It means: in this world, natural processes (in
extreme conditions such as in black holes should be
exempted.Black holes form such intensive gravity and
electromagnetic field that produce extreme high pressure
and temperature which can form the enormous

transformation) and human activities both make useful
energy more and more useless. Energy always tends to
dissipate into its environment and dilute its own density.
And this process will proceed on till energy entirely
spread out in whole space with the same density. This
equally distributed energy is unavailable for any work but
this process is irreversible (under normal conditions. This
is the condition should be applied to this relative law).

systems continuously fluctuating and self-organizing


themselves. These systems take in useful energy (energy
with higher density) to sustain their own stably
continuous (though there are fluctuations) self-organizing
processes. And put out useless or less useful energy
(energy with lower density) into the environment, and it
increases the entropy of the whole environment. The
evolution of self-organizing system is driven by the
ordering nature of this system and its interaction with the
environment (an open system always and ever interacts
with its environment). This self-organizing process is
propelled by the work gained from the energy flux (which
is spontaneously flowing from high density to low
density). As the dissipative structure of a self-organizing
system becomes more and more complicated, the speed
and amount of the energy flow will increase accordingly,
and the speed and amount of the entropy grow of the
environment will increase as well. In the meantime, its
energy efficiency will increase also.
We may simplify it by saying: Under the effect of
negative entropy flux, an open system, when in the state
of far from equilibrium, can spontaneously form a stable
ordering organization called dissipative structure. This
form of ordering organization is sustained by this
systems continuously taking in energy and material from
the environment and making use of them by circulation
and transformation of them inside the system while
dissipating the energy. This system has self-organizing
function, it can make itself more and more complicated
and in the meantime it will dissipate out more energy.

GO FOR ETERNAL LIFE


---------- POSITION OF LIFE IN
THE UNIVERSE

If we suppose the whole universe is constituted of


innumerable galaxies which are the cells of the universe
(unit ofmass-energy transformation), then the border area
in the outer rim is in a unique position. Here, the impacts
of the mass-energy transformationare minimal. Here
there is free space, is highly active region.
The highly intelligent forms of life will infinitely
approach the absolute truth of the universe, but can never
reach it (according to the great philosopher Hegel). The
highest form of life is the highest form of existence of the
universe itself, is the highest form of matter existence.
And they have to understand the world, understand the
law of motion of matter and open their road for survival
and development.
That is: matter develops itself,
understands itself and preserves its own achievements of
development. This is the purpose of evolution of matter,
and this is the purpose of life. So, the highest forms of
life will have necessity to strive for eternal existence. For
this purpose, they will have to move towards regions in
space, which is of high vitality and high freedom. This
kind of space only exists between the edges ofmassenergy transformation unit. Where they will live with
high manoeuvrability (because the edges of unit massenergy transformation is moving constantly). There, they
will jump out of the recycle procedure of the nature. Their

13

existence and development will be aloft of the state in the


transformation of matter of the universe.

Humans have two choices: stay in our galaxy or


nearby galaxies or fly into deep space. This is entirely
depending on our knowledge about the existence states
and future interactions of our galaxy and its
surroundinggalaxies.
If we do not self-destroy (e.g. nuclear war,
environmental destruction, etc), and have sufficient
development rate (e.g. cosmic catastrophe would not fall
on Earth before human gets the ability to deal with it),
then, sooner or later, humans will master those important
mysteries of the universe (e.g. gravity, superlight, massenergy transformation, forms of lifes existence, etc).
Then, it is possible for humans to liberate ourselves from
the imprisonment of the space and time and the existing
forms of life, to go for magnificent immortal life.
In this book, if reader find words such as Big
Bang, Big Bang unit, big collapse,Big Bang
cycleperiodical mass-energy transformation please correct
/ replace them in your mind with black hole, galaxy, and
continuous mass-energy transformation. Those mistakes
are part of the thinking information evolution history. The
author will leave them there as it is (when he is too lazy to
change them).

DAWN LIGHT OF THE NEW ERA


--------- Information Evolution Theory
Every bit and piece of achievements of evolution
of life is to be recorded and passed down by genes.
Genes are successively changing, some changes are not in
favour of the development and survival of the organism
and they will be eliminated. Some changes are in favour
of the development and survival of the organism, so they
are kept and further developed by the organism. This is
just part of the story, because evolution is not as simple as
an error and try game. The fundamental reason for
evolution is based on the intrinsic nature of matter
existence itself --- ordering. Natural selection is just one
phenomenon caused by the ordering nature of matter but
not vice versa.
That is why this process is changing, and will be
entirely changed in the future. It is not the principle of
natural selection itself (though the old theory needs to be
modified and complemented) but the way to fulfil it is to
be changed.
Gene is the most basic living matter. Genes are
the carriers of biological information, with the function of
information recording, storage, output and duplication.
The corresponding biological information has to be stored
and expressed by the corresponding biological structure
(genetic structure).

Seeking Answers

15

Life is a form of existence of matter (or, say, a


mode of motion of matter). The evolution of life is the
advanced stage of the process of evolution of matter.
At the early stages of evolution of life, every step
of achievements has to be recorded, carried (stored),
copied (asexual reproduction), input and output or say
exchanged [sexual reproduction, gene transfer (e.g. in
their life activities, sometimes a virus may cut a piece of
gene from an organism and transfer it into the sequence of
a gene of another life)] by the gene.
But when life evolves to a certain stage, since the
restrictiveness of the gene itself will hinder the process of
evolution of organism, life itself will employ more
efficient mode for its own evolution process: Use
thinking --- the mode of motion of the brain to replace the
role of the gene. This process has started when humans
began to use things outside their brains to record
information (e.g. keep records by tying knots, cut symbols
on a rod of wood or a piece of flat stone). In the recent
couple of hundred years, the study for biology and the
study for the function and structure of genes in this
century have brought this process into a substantial stage.
The laser disc, magnetic tape, paper materials in
gene data base began to replace genes functions as the
carrier of biological information, and the functions of
recording, output and duplication is carried out by human
brains (assisted by computers). What has a more positive
meaning is that: The self-repairing function of the gene is
starting to be replaced by artificial repairing of gene
defects (in thousands of repairing works a day, an

Seeking Answers

16

organism may have some casual failure). Artificial


repairing --- artificial modifying --- orientated evolution -- artificial designing.
In the future, the fate of life will no longer be
manipulated by gene; it will be controlled by the thinking
of the brain.1
Though the brain is so great a device, to say
thinking information (or to say achievements of thoughts)
is the creation of the brain seems not accurate. To say
thinking information is the product of the interaction of
the brain and its environment seems more reasonable. In
its physiological meaning, brain is a subsystem of its
whole body; in thinking activities (in the evolution
process of thinking information) the brain is a subsystem
of its environment. So the interaction of the brain and its
environment is included in the mode of motion of the
brain. Therefore, we define thinking as the mode of
motion of the brain and thinking information as the
evolutionary achievements of the mode of motion of the
brain.
The efficiency of evolution of thinking
information is quite high. Though thinking information
will feed-back react on the evolution of the gene (artificial
1

This hypothesis is based on and inspired by Prof. David Suzukis


revolutionary idea that the evolution of the gene will be replaced by
the evolution of the brain. Which is heard in a TV program in channel

and foundation of thinking information evolution was laid down by
Richard Dawkinss epoch breaking mneme concept, Selfish Gene .

17

designing), the evolution of the gene (or biological


information) still will further and further be lagged behind
by the evolution of thinking (or say thinking information).
This is caused by the essential difference between the two
different modes of evolution of information.
One simplified saying is that: In the future the
evolution of the gene will be replaced by the evolution of
the brain.
This statement is apt to cause
misunderstanding. To say the evolution of biological
information will be replaced by the evolution of thinking
information seems more accurate. Gene is the basic living
matter, is the carrier of biological information. Biological
information directs the existence of the whole organism.
Brain is a part of an organism, so its existence and
development is under total and direct control of the gene.
What can evolve so freely like birds flying in the sky is
the mode of motion of the brain (of course in reality it is
not always so freely especially in countries which practice
strict thoughts control) --- thinking information (or say
achievements of thoughts). Which is not to be controlled
by gene (though it may be affected by gene), but the other
way around, it will control the gene.
Gene is the carrier of biological information, but
what has an essential meaning is the information in it, not
the substance that it is composed of. The essence of the
continuation of life is the successive motion of biological
information, but the aging, dying, and decomposing of the
organism is not of substantial meaning. The substances
that our body is composed of have already been replaced
many times in our lives, but as long as the elements

compose you according to your biological information,


you will always be yourself.
The evolution of biological information depends
on its own material base --- gene to record, store, repair,
duplicate, output and exchange information [exchange
information depends on sexual reproduction, gene transfer
(e.g. conducted by virus)]. The evolution of biological
information totally and necessarily has to depend on the
corresponding evolution of the biological structure
(structure of gene). Which is strictly regulated by the
laws of biology.
But the evolution of thinking
information is not entirely dependent on the structural
evolution of its subject --- the brain; it is an evolution of
the mode of motion of the brain. It must use tools to
record, store, copy, output, receive information, and tools
(from ancient primitive calculator to modern computer)
also be used in processing information (assisting
thinking). Modern science and technology have made
every brain a unit of a global wide interlinked network
(here it does not only means the Internet but all the means
of information circulation and processing). This is the
mode of evolution of the material structure of thinking
information: At first, some simple nerve cells
accumulated and linked together to form a simple network
to function simple roles. As the evolution process of any
open system, it becomes more and more complicated and
can function in more and more complicated roles. As this
process carried on, it achieved such complexity that it
became a human brain.
Then these brains were
accumulated and linked by languages, then writings, then
faster transportation means, long distance communication
means, electronic means As elements put together and

Seeking Answers

19

interlinked, they form a new entity which has entirely


different properties than the single elements.2 And this
principle applies to every level of complexity: chemical
elements link together to form a compound, compounds
link together to form a prototype of a living matter, it
evolves into a cell, cells link together to form more
complicated forms of life, the life got some nerve cells
which linked together to form a nerve knob. It evolves
into a human brain, human brains link together to form a
larger thinking information evolution structure and these
structures of different intelligent beings will link together
to form larger and more efficient structures, the structures
of our Galaxy will link together with that of the nearby
galaxies to form a structure of the galaxy group, it will
link the structure of another galaxy group and so on (Be
ware that this is just a guess. Because there is only one
single absolute truth, so the advanced will necessarily
have already covered the backward ones. So this sort of
multiculture may not be necessary for them). Every
time when a lower level of elements (or say units) link
together to form a new entity, it will show some entirely
different properties than the single elements (or say units)
which formed it.
At our present stage, in our planet, all the human
brains and all the artificial information terminals (e.g.
computers) and information centres (e.g. libraries, data
bases) have been linked together by all the means of
modern science and technology to form a global thinking
information evolution system. In this system, you give

out a single piece of information, it will automatically


undergo a continuous process of permutation and
combination, and grow. It may evolve into a design or a
complicated theory, and they will continue to grow and
evolve as well. Humans are trying hard to find the signals
of aliens, so that we can join larger and more efficient
thinking information evolution system. On the other
aspect, to achieve this also depends on our evolutionary
level. When our thinking information evolves to the
necessary level of the planet unit of an interstellar
network structure of thinking information evolution,
probably it will be easier to establish an interstellar
communication.
For the present stage and the foreseeable future,
material resources (which are available to our
corresponding ability) are of extreme importance to our
survival and development, but as far as the deep future of
human being is concerned it is nearly irrelevant. Because
matter is boundless and indestructible (only can be
transformed to another state), you do not have to worry
about the material resources in the universe. What we do
have to worry about is our ability to use the material
resources, because any material resource available to our
present and foreseeable ability to use it is temporary (e.g.
Earth, Solar system, the Galaxy, this unit universe). The
only resources we can depend on for our unforeseeable
deep future is thinking information that will eventually
lead us to eternity. Only the corresponding thinking
information can give us the corresponding material
resources utilizing ability. After all, thinking information
is condensed by energy, but it can control the energy
(different levels of thinking information can only control

21

their corresponding levels of energy). Mass is also


condensed by energy, it can control energy as well (the
formation of a star, the energy releasing of a star, the
mass-energy transformation of a unit universe etc). But
the unit accumulation of mass cannot be possibly over the
limit of the Big Band critical mass while the unit
accumulation of thinking information (the sum of
thinking information of a species of intelligent life) can
infinitely approach infinite (the absolute truth cannot be
reached, but can be infinitely approached).
The starting point of thinking information and
biological information are nearly the same, both entirely
depend on their own subjects respectively --- brain and
gene. The difference in their evolution efficiency (which
is caused by their different mode of evolution) makes the
evolution of thinking information overpass the evolution
of biological information and furthermore the former will
replace the latter. The process at the present stage is:
liberate the evolution of biological information from the
gene and make it evolve under the direction of the rational
thinking (thinking information). That is: First, extract the
biological information from the gene (read out, recognize,
decipher and record), then put it under artificial evolution
with the mode of evolution of thinking information [under
the direction of rational knowledge (thinking
information)] --- process the biological information with
human brains and computers, then finally incarnate the
processed biological information with the form of gene
again to realize this evolution achievement.
This
evolution achievement is not only recorded in genes but
more significantly also recorded in artificial record
carriers such as characters, symbols, graphs etc. This

Seeking Answers

22

gives the evolution of biological information (partly) the


efficiency of that of the thinking information. The
difference is that when thinking information is recorded
onto paper, magnetic tape, laser disc etc, it is realized, but
the biological information has to be reincarnated into
the form of gene to realize this achievement.
The process of evolution of biological information
to be replaced (or controlled) by the process of evolution
of thinking information will be of decisive significance
for the control of human population both in quantity and
quality. But this is not something that can happen in the
near future.
Since biological information is strictly been
carried and expressed by its corresponding biological
structure (genetic structure), it is bound up by the laws of
biology and its evolution efficiency is confined. For
instance, the evolution unit time of the gene is an
individual generation, while thinking information is in a
mode of continuous evolution; the evolution of biological
information need large amount of time and energy to
change the structure of the gene but the evolution of
thinking information have only to change the signals
recorded in artificial record carriers (such as paper,
magnetic tape, laser disc etc). Of course it is not always
so easy (sometimes people have to risk their lives to
achieve a little bit of progress of thinking information),
but here we just try to indicate the difference in their
modes of evolutions. Actually the evolution of thinking
information is the result of the interactions between the
thinking subject [an individual brain, a society, a whole
network of thinking information evolution systems

Seeking Answers

23

(including their brains and all their scientific and


technological means) of a species of intelligent life] and
its environment [colleagues, society, global thinking
information evolution systems (and higher levels of
thinking information evolution systems such as
interstellar, intergalaxy), different levels of major
thermodynamic supporting systems (such as Solar system,
the Galaxy etc)]. The structure of an open system has the
tendency to keep itself stable but the interaction between
this structure and its environment tend to change it (e.g.
the exchange in energy, material, and information).
Evolution itself, by nature, is step by step progress. Any
revolutionary quantum leap is based on its existing base
and environment. Trying to jump levels is as impossible
as to try to hold the evolution still.
The evolution level of thinking information is also
dependant on the level of evolution (including structural
evolution) of its environment. Thinking information is
the highest level of energy condensing. But the energy,
which is directly being condensed into thinking
information, is nearly negligible. Most of the energy
condensed in thinking information is collected and
concentrated from lower levels of energy condensing. It
is like a pyramid structure. Every lower level has a wider
base and is more important and decisive than its upper
level that is supported by it. For instance, when you find
the thinking information of a society has got some
problem, you can check the lower bases one by one
underneath and its environment around, you may find the
reasons and maybe the solution as well. The levels of this
thinking information - energy dissipation pyramid can
be divided very fine and it also can be divided in many

and it is more important and more decisive than its upper
level which it supports. Give a roughly divided sequence

Or in this sequence: Natural environment and heritage of

society --- the upper limit of civilization tolerance of this
society (which is determined by the upper limit of the
survival structure stability of this society) --- the level of
social and cultural freedom --- the level of thinking
information of this society.
We talk so much about this, is just to show that the
realization of thinking information can be just changing
the signals in an artificial information record carrier, but
the process does not start from there and does not finish
there, it has its material base and actually determined by it
[including biological structure and biological information,
but the most basic and decisive thing is energy [that is
why we should pay a little bit of respect to it when we
know a galaxy or a group of galaxies have an age a couple
of billion years older than ours)]. The evolution of
thinking information is based on energy dissipation just
like the evolution of any other matter. But the efficiency
of the evolution of thinking information is the highest in
the universe, even much higher than that of the biological
information.
The life-span limit is a necessary condition for the
natural evolution process of biological information, but
when the process of the evolution of thinking information
replaced (or controlled) that of the biological information,
as long as humans are concerned, life-span limit will not
have positive significance any more. For the evolution of
biological information, life-span is not only necessary but
also have to be not too long. One generation is a unit of

26

the evolution of biological information. Its length is an


important factor of the rate of evolution. Successive
sexual reproduction in generation sequence is an efficient
mode of evolution of biological information.
It
guarantees the biological information to be successively
repermuted and recombined in a limited time span. But
for the evolution of thinking information, as it is not to be
carried and expressed by the structure of organism, so it is
not only irrelevant to the limit of life span and sexual
reproduction but the eternal life of individuals is actually
the necessary condition for the efficiency of the
accumulation of thinking information achievements and
accordingly thinking information potential. So the
replacement process of the evolution of biological
information by that of the thinking information will bring
about the process of longevity, and finally lead to the age
of human eternity. But, actually the existence form of an
eternal individual will continuously evolve, so every other
period afterwards, he is not himself any more as long as
the original meaning is concerned. So, the continuous
evolution of an eternal individual and the successive
generational evolution of limited lives are just the
different mode of evolution and existence of life in its
corresponding stage of evolution. It is the demand of
efficiency of the evolution of thinking information, which
makes the continuous eternal mode of evolution replace
successive generational mode of evolution of life. Of
course, sex, as a mode of evolution and socialization will
not be entirely deserted. But for future humans, the
exchange of thoughts and feelings will have much more
important significance.

Finally, we may leave genes aside and read out the


biological information directly from the biological
information field, then artificially redesign it, check it,
and test it with computers, then incarnate this new
biological information field with its mass state and realize
this achievement.
Actually the ordering process of matter is the same
process of information evolution.
The process of
evolution of non-living matter also contains the process of
information evolution. For instance: The Big Bang, the

the evolution of the Earth, the formation process of a

Any transmission of information must be carried

Destination activity is driven by information

transfer of energy that is controlled by the information
potential is a destination activity).3 The essence of
destination activity is that: It is the information

controlled energy to express this information itself (or


say, information by means of its controlled energy carries
out a self-transmission process). It is the process of
information self-realization and self-expression. This
process is realized by means of information controlled
energy transmission. So it happened: Energy condensed
into information and then the information turned back to
control energy and drive it to serve the process of
information self-realization. It is the most significant
thing happened in the process of ordering of matter.
However, only thinking information can actively
and initiatively drive destination movement but biological
information not. Biological information can only drive a
destination movement according to the programmed
process in the gene. Same as the information carried in
any non-living matter, biological information is the level
of ordering of the structure of matter reflected in the
motion of matter. It does not have initiative. Thinking
information is the level of ordering of the mode of motion
of matter reflected in the motion of matter. It has
initiative. When its potential progressively increases (as
evolution process goes on), the quantity and quality of
energy and information which it can control increases
correspondingly.4 In sequence, they are: thermodynamic
potential {dynamic energy --- chemical energy --- nuclear

This sequence can be divided into much finer levels


according to the levels of thinking information they

are two important factors which will regulate this process:
The level of their thinking information potential, and their

Whether human thoughts conform to the law of motion of

From a thermodynamic sociobiology point of


view, in one life system, there is only one species of
intelligent life. The detailed history of how this life
branching out, trimming in, fluctuating spiral up
recurrent cycles are not our topic of discussion here.
Pretend looking down afar from space, we just consider
this is the way lives survive.
When we are talking about concepts such as
evolution, system, information etc, we usually use energy
as a universal exchange, use time and space as its factors
or co-efficients.
If in this Galaxy (around 40 billion stars) only one
planet happens to have the conditions to generate life, and
in this planet lives have already been generated, then we
can calculate the cost of evolution of this life according to
the energy this Galaxy has dissipated from its birth till
now. And every day this life lived, the cost of existence
of this day is the sum of energy this galaxy dissipated in
this 24 hours.
Any planet with the conditions for generating life,
if it has enough time for it, will generate primary life.
Any primary living matter, if it has enough time, will
evolve into a completed life system [here life system (or
say biosystem) means all the living things in one
ecosystem which are interdependent and interconstraining
and evolve together, including microbes, animals and
plants]. And any life system, if it gets enough time, will
generate intelligent beings.

When the galaxy is recycled, the cost of evolution


will have to be recalculated. Because any life which
cannot escape the control of the gravity of the recycling
unit, will lose its evolution achievements. And the cost of
evolution of all the lives which can escape from control of
the gravity of the recycling unit is the sum of energy (here
we abbreviate it as Qdu) this unit universe has dissipated
during the time span of the mass-energy transformation.
Since the destination of evolution of matter is the
most intelligent life (here we abbreviate it as Lh), and the
whole coexisting life system is functioning as biological
supporting system. So we take the number (here we
suppose the number is X) of the species of intelligent
lives (we consider there is only one Lh in each life
system) which can escape the big collapse of the unit
universe as the divisor for the energy Qdu which is the
total energy dissipation in the expanding phase of
existence of the unit universe.
So the cost of evolution of every species of
intelligent life which can survive the natural selection in
the level of unit universe collapsing is:
Cev = Qdu/X
If no life can survive the natural selection in the
level of unit universe collapsing, then the cost of
evolution has to be recalculated according to a higher
level of natural selection (still not sure if there is a higher
level of natural selection). The scope of this level of
natural selection might be the mass-energy transformation
group. But one still cannot conceive the magnitude of the

Seeking Answers

34

mass-energy transformationgroup is determined by which


factors and the form of this level of natural selection.
From the above we can see: The fundamental
reason for the pursuit of eternal life and the mutual benefit
between intelligent lives from different life systems is that
by doing so they can reduce their cost of evolution and
existence.
And from here another thing we can see is that:
The population of an intelligent life in a life system is not
directly related with the cost of evolution and the cost of
existence (except the population is under the lower critical
limit or over upper critical limit) because they express the
same information (here information means the biological
information carried by genes, in the future, thinking
information may be included), can only represent one unit
of Lh. The population of an Lh is only related to the
efficiency of its own life system (or say biosystem).
There is an optimum proportion (which shifts according
to different development stages). Too large or too small
populations both have negative impacts on evolution
efficiency. Population over the upper critical limit will
cause degeneration or collapse of the ecosystem
(supporting system). That means the evolution efficiency
will be in negative value until all evolution achievements
are lost.
Compare the relations between different Lh and
the relations between the individuals of one Lh, we may
see: between the individuals of the same Lh, due to
competitive evolution mechanisms (natural selection),
exist a competition relations. Every individual will try to

Seeking Answers

35

contribute in the expression of biological information of


this Lh. For this he has to contribute new, more advanced
biological information (because the simply repeated
signals are not information therefore meaningless). If
large amount of copying of repeated signals consume too
much of the limited resources, may hinder the expression
of new information. Because the generation of new
biological information not only depends on enough
survival resources but also necessary development
resources. If a colony lastingly suffers severe resources
shortages (if system cannot take in sufficient energy and
materials, its functions and structures will be simplified so
that to cope with this unfavourable environment
conditions and keep the continuing operation of this
system), some information will be sacrificed
(sequencingly discard the less important and easier to be
recovered information to the more important and harder to
be recovered information) to avoid the loss of all
information. This is degeneration (but quiet often this
back and forth fluctuation will restructure and optimize
the systems of the individuals and the whole). The
extreme end of this degeneration process is extinction.
Any degeneration will put this colony in an unfavourable
competitive position. They are contributing negative
value for the evolution and hindering the evolution
efficiency of the whole.
There is not much need for the competition for the
expression of biological information between different
Lh. They are in a relations of complementation [quite
possible there will be quite an amount of biological
information is coincidental (due to convergent evolution).
The larger the proportion of the identical part (of their

Seeking Answers

36

biological information) the more intense the competition;


and the less the proportion of the identical part (of their
biological information), the more it affects in a positive
way in reducing the cost of evolution and existence]. And
there is not much need to compete for natural resources
between them either (due to space isolation effects).
Between different Lh the interaction intensity in both
aspects of competition and cooperation are much lower
than that between individuals in one Lh.
If one Lh extinct, it would not affect the evolution
achievements of another Lh. It just increased their cost of
evolution and existence; but to every individual of this
extinct Lh, the extinction made them lost all their
evolution achievements. The individuals of an Lh
compete each other intensely, but also they help each
other earnestly. Every individual will be ready to
sacrifice himself for the fundamental interests of the
whole (because this is the way which benefits him most).
The contribution made by any individual will benefit the
rest, and belong to the rest. Competition --- for increasing
the efficiency of evolution; cooperation --- to conserve
achievements. Two naturally opposite behaviours are for
the same goal.
Through the study of the definitions of the factors
and the relations between those factors in the formulae
Cev = Q/X, Cex = Q/X, we can get better understanding
for living matter:
The main aspect of the relations between aliens
and humans is cooperation (but not quite sure. Because of
the law of unity of laws of the universe and the law of

Seeking Answers

37

unity of matter of the universe, an advancedLh may have


already covered all the fundamental and essential
biological and thinking information of the lag behind
ones. Quite possible the only saviour for a lag behind Lh
is the space isolation effects).
The main aspect of the relations between humans
is competition; cooperation is in an auxiliary role. But the
two aspects are both necessary and they serve the same
goal.
The relations between quality and quantity of an
Lhs population.
The relations between the population of an Lh and
its supporting ecosystem.
The differentiation in one Lh and its effect on
evolution efficiency of the whole.
Let us look again at the formulae of the cost of
evolution and the cost of existence of an intelligent life:
Cev =

Cex =

You can speculate that majority of the intelligent


lives cannot pass through the ecological crises (the
ecological crises mean the general collapse of the
ecosystem which is caused by population explosion,
environmental pollution, ruinous war etc.). Because this
crisis follows the happening of civilization too closely and
it takes place in an explosive way, but its solution is of a
high level of difficulty. It needs a comparatively high
level of development of the natural science and social
science and the level of social science has to be accordant
with the level of natural science. So it can be speculated
that nearly all of the intelligent lives have to try to charge
through the ecological crises. Many times the civilization
be destroyed and many times it be recovered, until one
day an intelligent life find the means to control their own
quantity and quality, and learned ecological environment
management (or say protection), then they can claim that
they really entered into civilization which is the essential

MAN AND GODS


(Analytical science fiction)

There is no mass without energy and there is no


energy without mass. Mass --- energy transformation is
the mode of motion of matter. It is the mode of existence
of matter, does not matter it is small as an elemental
particle or as big as a super black hole. But can this
transformation been controlled not only in physical level
but also in biological and even thinking information
level? It is a dream. It is a science fiction. Let us live in a
mysterious and beautiful dream for a while. Just a while.
In a certain century of A.D.2 billion years, human
thoroughly changed his fate: liberated life from the
cumbersome
body,
realized
the
mass-energy
transformation of the existence state of human himself.
Just like the gods in the ancient tales, but usually
will not turn into a strike of golden light but a strike of
cold blue light, disappear in a fraction of a second into the
deep sky.
Finally, human mastered the mysterious art of
mass-energy transformation. Thereafter, human stepped
into the age of eternity.
Controlled by the thinking activities of the brain,
man in mass state of existence transformed into his
energy state of existence. When he is in his energy state,
he only has a minimum sense and consciousness and has a
minimum mass. But his biological information field is
intact. His consciousness makes him to control his

judgement and decision, and turn him back to his mass
state in a fraction of a second.
Actually, every one is more or less a little bit
different in his state of energy existence, no matter it is in
potential, frequency distribution. So each one has his own
characteristic spectrum, has his own energy pattern. This
pattern is comparatively stable in his life span. But its
energy density index will shift a bit according to his
health condition. For instance, in his growing period his
whole spectrum pattern will move towards blue end,
when he passes his middle age and getting old his whole
spectrum pattern will move towards red end.
When a man is in his mass state, it facilitates
evolution, thinking, and creation; in energy state, it
facilitates conservation and movement.
At this time, his body to him is not so important
any more. It is just an entity constituted by elements
according to his biological information field. It is his
biological information field, which is the really essential
matter. It is the essence condensed by enormous of
amount of energy in the universe over billions of years
and many levels of concentration.
Every man will have two copies of holographic
record of his biological information (one copy stores in
the archives in the hospital, another in biological
information resources library) in case when the biological
information field was accidentally damaged, can easily be
repaired or just totally re-realize it. At that time, man will

not be afraid of being chopped by knife or an axe, or


crushed to pieces by a machine. Just uses his thinking
power he can repair his body instantly. When his
biological information field is partly damaged, he can
immediately transform into energy state and escape the
danger, then use his bio-holographic field repair the
damaged part of his biological information field. If his
biological information field were destroyed totally
instantaneously, then, a signal would be sent out at the
same time, informing the hospital and biological
information library. At that time, a murder is not
destroying a persons body, but to destroy his biological
information field and eliminate his biological information
record data archives.
At that time, the way human take in energy and
material to suite his needs will be thoroughly changed.
Man will still have a set of intact alimentary system, and
still will have appetite, but another mode of incepting
energy and material will parallelly exist. The two modes
can be used simultaneously or alternatively. The future
man will have very strong thinking information potential,
can control a small part of his body be transformed into
energy for his use; and also outside energy can be
controlled to be transformed into mass to build his own
body. And all these works will be accomplished by his
thinking power and not a single piece of equipment will
be needed.
The future man can travel at light speed by his
thinking power and without any dependency on
equipment, nor outside energy (he can use his own inner
energy travel for a long distance, but after all he has to

level). Space background temperature is of no effect on
energy state man, but extreme temperature may destroy
biological information field and bring about death of
human.
Human biological structure will be so complicated
that his real body will be around 20 meters high (he can
transform into other sizes and forms by using his thinking
power). He is a supper life. He uses hyper-distance
remote sensing technology for interstellar communication,
because electromagnetic waves are not suitable for this
purpose. And this mode of communication also can be
made by thinking power and without any assistance from
equipment. This mode of communication can realize near

of space distance. His remote sensing function also can
clearly recognize our thoughts and feelings (if we can go
into their world), while we do not have the kind of
thinking information and biological information field
shielding and interfering functions that they possess. So,
any kind of cheating or self-styled clever way to treat
them is of no use. But if you do, they do not really mind.
Because that is the way you are, in your evolution level. It
is normal. They also have remote control function: By
using their thinking power, they not only can make nonliving matter move but also can make living matter move.
They can directly take over the control for your arms and
hands and make them do any thing just like using their
own hands. And also they can control your brain activities
with their thinking power. When they are in motion in the
space, their remote sensing function can give them a vivid

distance too. It tells them the spots where exists life and
tell them the evolution level and existing state of these

evolved from biological information field, and is a weak
field by nature but it can use the energy in such a

they have the ability to participate into it. It is a colourful

When meet other intelligent life forms in space

they have a brief analysis of the information they just get,
they may decide to help the other party to get their
information (since the sharability of information, both
parties can acquire new information while do not lose
anything, and this will increase the evolution efficiency in

their cost of evolution and existence. So exchange


information is a routine practice between intelligent

other party and intensify his biological and thinking
information field (with our present eye sight, it is a pale
but colour glow and aureoles in his body and around) for
a few seconds or minutes. If the other party still can not
read out and absorb these information, then no further
effort will be made. Since if life forms of low evolution
level get the information which are of too much disparity
in evolution level compared with their own, may cause
negative effects or even self-destroying. This is also one
of the reasons why high level intelligence do not usually
interfere the evolution process of those low level
evolution life forms. Since this kind of interference
process is, by nature, an one-way information
transmission process (it is caused by the great difference
in biological and thinking information potential), without
strong interaction and only dominant in one side, so this
may finally lead to too high a convergence rate in the
evolution of biological and thinking information and
impeded the generation of new information.
What will the future human be alike? Probably
only have to refer to the model of gods --- they are of
supreme dignity, supreme kindness, supreme beauty,
supreme wisdom and supreme power.

We use our own behaviour patterns to expect

Most of the extraterrestrial lives have the same

of carbon determined its core position in life world.
Nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen are also key elements. There

evolution efficiency will be too low, that they can not
form competition for carbon chain lives. Extraterrestrial
lives, their chemical composition, morphological structure
and evolution process are all astonishingly similar to that
of the lives on Earth. Since the physical and chemical
properties of materials are the same in the universe, the
law of motion of matter applies anywhere in the universe.
There are only some differentiations which are caused by
different specific environmental conditions. Not only
alien man similar to human, but the alien animals, plants
and microorganisms all similar to that of the Earth.
If you can visit an alien earth, you may be shocked
by the similarity of the whole ecosystem, the blue high

mountains. But you can not touch down. Can not even

When they meet, a violent interaction is inevitable. And
only through a long term, painful and costly adaptation
process they may get along with each other in a new
dynamic balance. After you enjoyed the view of the alien
world, your life have come to an end, it is just a matter of
a couple of days or weeks. But the damages on the other
side will even be greater: millions of lives will be
destroyed. The microbes which live with you friendly in
your daily life might prove to be malignant and effective
killers for the alien lives. They do not feel much
resistance as they dispersing into this new world, the
resistance not yet organized, mutual-check, co-constraint
game interrelations not yet established. Vice versa, if an
alien can come to the surface of the Earth without risking
his own life and in the mean time without bringing about
turbulence to Earths biosystem, that must be really
advanced science and technology.
If aliens really can walk on the Earth, without
closed cosmic suit and directly breathe the atmospheric
air of the Earth like some people said, it should be a very
positive, very exciting evidence, which proved that
somehow there is some way that can make two totally
alien biosystem (In its general meaning every individual
of alien man is a mini-alien-biosystem.) meet without
violent interaction. If some species of alien man, as some
one claimed, only have a stature of 4.5 to 5 feet high with
a head not much bigger than ours, that should be another
positive evidence that advanced intelligence do not
necessarily need bigger head and higher stature than
human have already had (which means highly
complicated biological structure can be compacted into

small volume). But all these seem so good that we dare


not rashly believe it. So, it is reasonable that before we
get concrete evidence about that, let us keep our minds
open and do not draw a hasty conclusion.
But from most claims of alien encounters, we can
only draw such a picture: small and week and
unbalancedly developed body structure, an ugly and
emotionless face feature. In the face, sensing organs are
underdeveloped except a pair of big black eyes. The eyes
are so big that it can receive a lot more light ray, but the
colour of the eyes is so black (the whole eye ball even do
not have any white part) that means their habitats
radiation density is quite high. The only highly developed
part of an alien is his big brain and big eyes. From their
behaviour we can see exactly a copy of ourselves, you
should say, it is quite unlikely up to the standard of
interstellar relations. The way they take another intelligent
being to their laboratory and taking samples, conducting
experiments is not much better than a human hijacker
treating his hostages. So, naturally, many questions will
arise: How can a highly developed thinking information
being developed and carried by such a structurally
underdeveloped biological carrier? Can the evolution of
information and structure be unsynchronized like that?
Since the principles of aesthetics are universal (just like
other laws of nature, such as the principles in
mathematics, philosophy, physics, chemistry, etc.), it is
highly unlikely that any advanced intelligence will have a
principly different aesthetic standard than ours. How can
evolution itself let it happen? How can a highly intelligent
being have such an emotionless, expressionless face
feature, considering that facial expression is a reflection

of mental activities and an important aspect of language?


If the way their scientific experiment is conducted with
another intelligent life is limited by their development
level of science, there is not much reason to blame them,
but it means: we are encountering an intelligent being,
whose level of scientific and social development is not
much higher than ours. Or, it is just a imaginary creation
of some human minds when it is in a state of unconscious
or subconscious mental activities, considering the facts
that those claimed aliens behaviours are so much a copy
of our own, and their appearances are so much a copy of
the demons (whose images are traditionally formed by our
imagination throughout our history).
According to information evolution theory we
have mentioned previously, biological information has to
be carried and strictly expressed by the structure of living
matter [even the artificially evolved biological
information has to be realized by incarnating it with the
form of its corresponding biological structure (mainly
genetic structure)], so it is impossible for the biological
information to be evolved unsynchronized with its
corresponding biological structure. Thinking information
is the mode of motion of the advanced central nerve
system of living matter, its evolution does do not have to
be strictly synchronized with that of its biological
carriers structure. But between them still exists a positive
correlation. They are of different evolution rates and
modes but they have the same evolution direction.
Thinking information is evolved from biological
information [when biological information evolved to
certain stage (its complexity reaches a certain level),
thinking information appeared]. So, the prerequisite of the

63

generation of thinking information is its biological


structure reaching a certain level of complexity. And in
the evolution process, thinking information and its
carriers biological structure are mutual inducing, mutual
accelerating (though the level of evolution of the
biological structure will be further and further lagged
behind by its thinking information).
And how the aliens can overcome the dangerous
barriers of biological incompatibility between two totally
isolated biosystems in such ease is another puzzle. Maybe
the incompatibility between different life systems can be
reduced by step-by-step adaptation (such as natural and
artificial immunization). But to the most advanced life
forms, they do not need direct biological contact to solve
these kind of problems. They use their thinking
information directly, swiftly solve these problems. They
read out the biological information of the other biosystem
in a distance, then process it, store it, finally they use their
thinking information to adjust their own biological
information. Then they go directly into the environment
of the other biosystem. If find some small deviations
afterwards, fine-tuning will be made immediately. The
biological information of a biosystem is extremely
complicated, but if you find the key for it, it would not be
so complicated. They can retrieve the origin information
of a biosystem and predict its future by analyzing a single
cell of any life in this life system. To them it is nothing
but a routine practice of a general technique.

profound than that of ours for our cats (we are not quiet

I. Morphology of aliens
1. Aliens with reptile features
The evolution rate of reptiles is quite low. Their
variation branches through natural selection
process will necessarily overpass them. This way,
variation from variation, and again and again
evolution accelerated. And by the natural process
of biological evolution, inevitably an aquatic
branch of Primates mammal will first evolve into
intelligent beings. If they get enough time, any life
may evolve into an intelligent being. But since the
differentiation in evolution efficiency, the distance
between the most intelligent life and the rest will
even be larger. The chance must be feeble to find
a reptile featured intelligence flying around the
universe, but the possibility does exist. Since it is
quite unlikely that the most intelligent life will try
to hinder the evolution process of other life forms,
so every life has the chance to move its position in
its life system upward. Therefore, if a life with
reptile features come from outer space, it must be
the assistant (though their intelligence might
higher than human) of an alien intelligence, being
sent out for missions such as scientific expedition,
on site experiment, collecting samples, etc.
Because they have some specialized advantages
which are suitable for such task, for instance:

2. Aliens with insect features
Reasons as above for unfeasibility.
3. Aliens with small and weak body, big head, except
a pair of protruding big, totally black eye; other
facial organs are underdeveloped or degenerated.
Limbs are underdeveloped or degenerated. The
whole structure is not balanced. Narrow shoulders,
thin neck, and the external form full of
inexplicable bumps.
A highly developed brain will inevitably have
more complicated structure and larger volume. When it is
activated, it will need a lot more oxygen and energy than
human. So it need a powerful circulation system for that
purpose: a (or a pair of) powerful heart, strong arteries
with auxiliary pumping function (a second heart may
evolve from an auxiliary pumping knot). When an alien is
in an intensive thinking state his brain may consume
oxygen well over 70% of the whole body. If at the
meantime has violent body movement, the cardiovascular
system needs a powerful capacity to cope with. And the
lungs, liver, kidneys, glands and the alimentary system
must accordingly follow up. And the skeletal system,
muscle, ligaments and tendons which physically support
those organs and the big skull must match.
Since the gravity of a planet is necessarily related
to the biogenic environmental conditions. So it can be

67

speculated that aliens come from planets which have


similar gravity with that of the Earth. Therefore, the
proportions of their skeletons, muscles and weights must
be similar to that of the human. Only the evolution make
their body more proportionally built. What is the
proportion we do not really know, but we can baldly
speculate that the golden section may be the proportion
(considering its efficiency in mathematics and value in
aesthetics). So their stature should be higher than human.
This is determined by their bigger brains and overall more
complicated biological structure. For those whose
evolution level is not too far from ours (say within 100
million years), their stature may be around 3 meters. For
the more advanced forms of life they may be well over 10
meters high (actually their statures are determined by
themselves). But for some unknown reasons these godly
creatures are hardly for us to see.
Moreover, organism itself will not be able to allow
any bump or sunken without actual meaning to be
developed. A bump of a little fingers size will need extra
blood capillary and nerve of a couple of hundred meters
long to support its existence, and it consumes extra
oxygen and energy. If a bump lost its actual meaning,
organism will reduce the supply and shrink the nerve and
blood capillary and finally level the whole bump. The
ordering of matter follows the principle of efficiency. It is
especially so when it is a life. Efficiency pressure forces
the organism to keep the most economic morphological
state. And this kind of morphological state is concise,
fluent and graceful.

The evolution of the organisms is an advanced


form of the ordering process of motion of matter. The
more ordered, the more beautiful. This is the reason why
all highly developed forms of life are all very beautiful.
Beauty, is order. The higher the ordering level, the more
beautiful. This is the definition of beauty.
The beauty is only its manifestation, but efficiency
is its essence. For example, in mathematics, golden
section is used in optimization method, because it has
efficiency. Human skeleton structure evolves towards
golden section, because this way human body has better
efficiency.
The driving force for ordering process is coming
from efficiency pressure, and efficiency is the inherent
mode of motion of matter. It is the demand of efficiency,
which moulds the beauty. The thermodynamic meaning of
beauty is --- energy saving.
The measure of ordering level can be estimated by
the energy dissipated for the ordering process, so we can
probably estimate the level of beauty (which shows the
level of ordering) by measure the age of the galaxy where
an intelligent being comes from.
The evolution distance between human and worm
is around a billion years as scientist told us. That is the
value of a billion years of energy dissipation of the
Galaxy. And in this evolution process, we went through
many stages: fish, reptile, primitive mammal, advanced
mammal, then finally we become human. In every stage
upward, the evolution efficiency was greatly increased.

Evolution accelerated this way. Do not look down upon


the apes, the evolution distance between them and human
is merely ten million years. Compared to the possible
evolution gap between human and aliens from another
galaxy you should not say that is a big distance. Since life
is an inevitable result of the ordering process of the
universe. So, a logical inference is that: if you observed a
galaxy which is a billion years older than ours, the
evolution level of the life forms there should be a billion
years ahead of us. What they look like is beyond my
imagination because a billion years is too long a distance
for me to imagine. But according to the law of evolution,
they should be very adorable creatures. Take the example
for ourselves, if we have evolved from apes in ten million
years, can you imagine a billion years later we would look
like reptile? Efficiency principle just do not allow this to
happen.
The aliens who got the ability to travel decades or
hundreds of light years in the universe would not be able
to fall into an unbalanced degeneration of their own body.
They have already passed the period of natural evolution
of their biological genes (here we do not totally expel the
possibility of the existence of other forms of genes). The
natural evolution process of the genes has been replaced
by the evolution process of thinking information. Gene is
entirely under control of the intelligent beings themselves,
but the fate of lives is not passively determined by genes.
So as for the appearance of the aliens, it is a matter of
their own personal preference (or say initiative).
The life span of an alien is much longer than
human, their efficient survival time (time being used for

creative work) is much longer than human. Their


individuals have more time to accumulate knowledge and
skills and work. But for the most advanced life forms,
they actually are immortal or say they can live as long as
they think it is necessary. But, since their existence forms
are in constant evolutionary development, so after every
another period, they are not themselves any more on the
original meaning. Actually individualized, eternal,
continuous evolution and the evolution which is
successively passed on generation by generation, are just
two different modes of motion of living matter. It is the
demanding efficiency of thinking information which
makes generation successive evolution be replaced by
eternal continuous evolution.
II. Behaviours of aliens

stupidity, cold-bloodedness and evil even worse

What is suspectable is that whether the law of
evolution (or say the law of natural selection)
would let this unbalanced evolution exist at all. If
the aliens are creatures which have mastered the
advanced natural science and technology but only
have a low level of social science, than they

mechanism. They do not have the time to be
developed to the level of a couple of hundred light
years of astronavigation. Put the case that they can
come to the Earth, however the biosphere of the
Earth would already have been ruined in the
Jurassic period and would not be able to leave a
chance for us human to set our hands on.

evolution process of human.

1)
The aliens can control their own population
quality and quantity, can protect the environment
of their own planet, so there is no population

2)
The aliens can create artificial ecosystem
environment and live anywhere in the universe.
3)
The position of Earth in this unit universe is
quite near the future collapsing centre and is not
the general movement direction of intelligent
beings (The centre of Big Bang and big collapse
of the unit universe is not coincident. The centre
of the big collapse is determined by the interaction
of this unit universe and its surrounding unit
universes).
4)
Space isolation effects make it impossible or
not worthwhile to come.
5)
But the most fundamental reason is that: Only
the corresponding level of thinking information
can give the corresponding utilizing ability for
material resources. And any available natural
resources is temporary (Earth, Solar System, The
Galaxy, the unit universe etc.). They will go
through the mass-energy transformation process
periodically (when a unit universe is in the process
of big collapse, resources are not available in this

OBJECTIVE EXISTENCE THEORY


------- Non-Matter Existence Hypothesis

The Existence process of matter is the evolution


process of the exact same matter. This process is not only
irreversible but also unstoppable. And it has no beginning
and also no ending, just like the universe itself has no
beginning, no ending and boundless. The evolution
process of matter is irreversible. It has a direction arrow.
Time is also irreversible and it has a direction arrow as
well. They point to the same direction --- future. The
irreversibility of the existence process (evolution process)
is an essential and intrinsic nature of matter existence. It
is the law of the motion of matter. It is unchangeable.
Speaking from its general meaning, there is no reversible
process in the nature. Even the pendulum motion
(suppose there is no friction) in a closed system will not
be an exemption: This swing is not that swing. That
swing has already been swung. How can it be this swing?
Repeated identical forms of motion does not mean the
contents are the same. A motion, no matter how
monotonous and repetitive, as long as it is moving, it is
producing new information and it is carrying on the
process of evolution of matter (actually, for matter, the
process of existence is the process of evolution). If the
information of this swing is n, the next swing will be n
+ 1, even the forms of the motion are entirely identical.

only mean that photon has mass but not prove that space

Matter, space and time are all no beginning, no
ending and boundless. They are not to be created nor
eliminated. But space and time are an absolutely different
category of objective existence with matter. They can be
used as parameters to describe the existence state or
motion process of matter, but the existence state or
motion process of matter can never affect space and time.
Space and time are independent existences. They do not
have to be attached with matter to exist nor are they some
intrinsic attributes of matter. Concepts of matter such as
state, process, motion, evolution, variety etc do not apply
to space and time.
Compared with the variety,
inhomogeneity and changeability of matter existence, are
the monotony, homogeneity and unchangeability of space
and time. Space and time can not be curved or dilated.
They have neither density gradient nor state. Space has
no directionality while time has an irreversible directional
arrow which always pointing to the future. The rate of
time is unchangeable. And time is not an element of the
form of space. Space was, is and will be a boundless
void. As void is, in every direction, it is homogeneous.
As void is, it has no density or density gradient and can
not be curved by anything. So space can only be threedimensional.

not mean much, but as their independency and nonmateriality are concerned, they can be deemed as a nonmatter existence which is corresponding to matter

existence. This non-matter existence, actually, has the


same importance as matter existence: without space and
time, though there is matter, how can it exist and how can
it move? The boundless void, the infinite time are not
matter, nor some attributes of matter, but they indeed
exist and not depend on matter existence to exist. Though
non-matter existence can not be proved directly, it can be
proved indirectly with matter existence. For instance,
except prove that matter exists and moves in it, there is no
other way to prove space exists; except prove that the
process of motion of matter carries along with it, there is
no other way to prove time exists. Therefore, now we can
say: the existence of non-matter exists, and it has the
same importance as matter existence. Matter and nonmatter are both objective existences.
With the concept of the objective existence of
matter and non-matter, it is easier to understand why
space and time have such aloft independency to the
existence and motion of matter. Matter can not affect
them, still less determine them. They are independent
from matter existence. But they are the sole and
inseparable continuous background of matter existence
and motion, and can be used as describing parameters of
the state of matter existence and motion. The natures of
space and time, such as uncreatable, uneliminatable,
startless, endless, boundless, homogeneous, times rate
unchangeable, times directionality irreversible, these are
their intrinsic nature, are absolute, not relative. These
natures are not to be affected by the material world. And
therefore, they can be used as absolutely detached
objective criteria to describe and measure the states and
processes of the existence and motion of matter.

With the concept of matter existence and nonmatter existence, sets up the principle of non-matter exists
independently from matter existence, things are easier to
be understood. And do not have to mix time and space
with the origin of the material world (such as Big Bang
etc) and the irreversible processes of evolution of matter
(though the directionality of time indeed agrees with that
of the irreversible evolutionary processes of matter, but
not determined or affected by it).
Moreover, since matter including mass and
energy, so the idea that only the evolutionary process of
mass state matter (expanding unit universe) can represent
the irreversible processes of matter evolution and time
arrow are not reasonable. The evolutionary processes of
energy state matter (collapsing unit universe) is a
corresponding phase with the expanding unit universe in
the two-phase major cycle of matter evolution (or say
matter existence) --- expanding and collapsing unit
universe. The irreversible processes of matter evolution
are actually the mode of existence of matter. It is
startless, endless and boundless. Its direction ever points
forwards (to the future) and agrees with times arrow.
There are circulation cycles of evolution on every
level of structure of matter. But they are not closed
cycles. It is an open process, a spiral movement towards
future, agreeing with the time arrow. Even the processes
of Big Bang and big collapse of a unit universe are not
exempted. They are not simply repetitive recycling.

highly ordered matter will be released --- highly


intelligent lives and all the thinking information and
biological information they carry with them which
represents the final results of matter evolution of this
cycle of unit universe movement; the collapsing process
recycled evolution waste and renewed energy. Moreover,
the expanding and collapsing processes of a unit universe
are ordering matter structures in a higher level (unit
universe group). The expanding process of unit universe
is the ordering process of structure of matter in a mass
state (evolution of mass state matter), while it is also the
disordering process of structure of matter in energy state
(energy dissipation). The collapsing process is the
disordering process of structure of matter in mass state
(level by level the structures of mass state matter are
crushed), while it is also the ordering process of structure
of matter in energy state (mass is turning into energy and
the energy is concentrated). Here we can see, though the
results of evolution [highly ordered matter (including
highly intelligent lives and the thinking information they
created and the biological information they carry)] is
released from the expanding process, it is the collapsing
process which pulls the unit universe from the edge of
heat death (thermodynamic equilibrium) back to
thermodynamic non-equilibrium (energy concentration).
What the collapsing process created is the driving force
and primary source of evolution of matter in mass state --energy, with its dissipative nature. And this process in
turn, induced another process --- expanding process which
created the driving force and primary source of evolution
of matter in energy state --- mass, with its concentrative
nature. Probably this is the metaphor of phoenix.

congregation and merging process collected enough
matter to reach Big Bang critical mass, then, the
collapsing unit universe --- concentrative structure, is
going to die, and in the mean time, it will give birth to a
new world --- expanding unit universe --- dissipative
structure.
Unit universe is the most essential and most
important level of structure of matter existence. It is the
cell of the universe. In this cell, the basic living activity
of the universe --- mass-energy transformation is
proceeding. A mass smaller than Big Bang critical mass
can not crush the last level of structure of matter and can
not make the decisive and final mass-energy
transformation. While mass larger than Big Bang critical
mass can not keep its existence --- because once a mass
reaches the Big Bang critical mass, it will have a Big
Bang immediately. The existence state of the unit
universe is oscillating between two phases --- mass
evolution [expanding unit universe (dissipative structure)]
and energy evolution [collapsing unit universe
(concentrative structure)]. The two phases are mutual
causing, mutual inducing. The case is quite like the
existence (or say movement) state of an electromagnetic
wave (e.g. that of a photon): Its existence state is
oscillating between wave and particle periodically while
its field will oscillate accordingly between electric and
magnetic periodically and the two phases (accordingly the
two fields) are mutual causing, mutual inducing. It is the

The evolution of matter has major unit cycle (a Big Bang

different phases [after the Big Bang, the expanding unit

general universe will always live on, so will the

Space only provides itself for matter to move

matter. Space is not a continuous matter background; it is

Space is the boundless void (or say vacuum), is

state, or some thing like curvature or space tunnel.
These are concepts of the matter existence and can not be
imposed on non-matter existence. This way would not be
helpful in understanding the objective world [the
objective world is composed of matter existence (mass,
energy) and non-matter existence (space, time)].
One might have used to the idea that anything that
exists in the world is matter, and other things are

There is no such thing as a mass without energy.


There is no such thing as energy without mass. There is
no such thing as a matter without state. 1 There is no
such thing as a non-matter with state.

The basic natures of non-matter existence:


1.
Non-matter existence is an objective
existence. It is not affected by matter existence nor does
it participate or interfere with the motion of matter. The
laws and concepts of the existence and motion of matter
can not apply to non-matter existence. Non-matter
existence can not be created nor eliminated. Non-matter
existence is the absolute, constant and objective
background of the existence and motion of matter. It can
be used as describing parameters of the existence and
motion of matter [time and distance are two essential
parameters. Area and volume are two-dimensional and
three-dimensional distance compound space parameters
respectively.
Speed is a time and distance (onedimensional space) compound parameter].
2.
Space is startless, endless and boundless; it
is a boundless void; but it is an objective existence. Space
is three-dimensional and in every direction it is
homogeneous, monotonous and unchangeable.

Like the law of

existence below, they are absolute laws of nature and can

The law of conservation of non-matter (the law of
indestructibility of non-matter): Non-matter can not be

The law of objective existence:
The objective existence is composed of matter
existence and non-matter existence. Matter existence is
composed of mass and energy. Non-matter existence is
composed of space and time. The objective existence can
not be created nor be eliminated. It is startless, endless,
and boundless.
The processes of its existence is
irreversible; its direction always points forwards to the
future. Non-matter existence is not affected by matter
existence, nor does it participate or interfere with the
existence and motion of matter. Laws and concepts that
belong to matter existence do not apply to non-matter
existence. Matter existence will observe the laws of
motion of matter without exception. In this world, there
is no other existence but objective existence.

We can not prove directly that space and time can

laws of physics will not change (actually, use

Non-matter existence can not be proved directly, it

there is no other way to prove space exists; except prove
that the processes of motion of matter carries along with
it, there is no other way to prove time exists.

changeable.
Actually, from the results of calculation which is
based on the data gained from observation and
experiments can not really prove either: The gravitational
force curved the space-time so that the light ray travelled
a curved line or the gravitational field exerted its force on
the light ray so that it deviated from its original direction
of travel, but the space and time are not affected. Because
in both cases, see from the phenomena observed and the
effects it caused, they are equivalent, not distinguishable
at all. Though from their nature they are two entirely
different things. Actually it is a matter of choose reference
frames. If you postulate that in vacuum the speed of light
will not change and photon has no mass so it will not be
affected by gravitational force, then unless you suppose
space and time is changeable, there is no other way to
interpret the results of the observation and calculation. If
you postulate that the space and time is not changeable,
then except the movement of the photon there is nothing
else which can be supposed to be changeable to interpret
the results of the observation and calculation. So, on this
issue, only use observation and calculation can not solve
anything. It is a game of ideology; it has to be decided by
inference. To precede this inference, we need to postulate
a premise: That is the law of objective existence and nonmatter existence we have mentioned in the last essay.

Reasons:
1.
Photon is matter. It must follow the laws of
motion of matter.
2.
So far, things such as a mass without any
energy or energy without any mass have not been
found yet. Photons are no exception. They have
mass too. Otherwise no matter how strong the
gravitational field will be, a photon will not be
able to be captured and bound up by a black hole.
3.
Gravitational field can not exert its force
on anything that does not have any mass (actually
this kind of matter does not exist).
4.
Space and time are not matter. They are
non-matter existence. Obviously they do not have
any mass.

Based on the four reasons mentioned above, we


can get inference: The curved path of a light ray when it
passes a massive object is caused by the force which is
exerted by the gravitational field of this massive object
onto the mass of the photons of this light ray, but it is
impossible for the space or time or both to be curved or
changed in whatever way.
To avoid null labour, let us give two pieces of
advice: When postulating a state of existence or motion of
matter is unchangeable, a quite amount of wary should be

years to recover civilization. If plants and microbes
vanish, it might need three billion years to recover
civilization. From this we can see that the more primary,
more basic species, the more important in a life system.
See from the vertical direction: a subsystem vanishes
obviously will cost less than the vanishing of the system

mass, and mass is transformed from energy. That is, life is
made of matter and by motion of matter. The existence
state of matter is eternally oscillating between mass and
energy and its essential mode of motion is the constant
transformation between mass and energy. And only in this
process life can be created and sustained. We can neither
create matter nor control the mode of motion of matter.
We are only and absolutely a consumer of energy, it is
beyond the power of any intelligent creature to reverse the

Only matter itself can summon the great power of

between living matter and non-living matter is the
differentiation in their levels of ordering. And the
difference in ordering level is caused by the different
amount of energy which is condensed into the formation
of the information which is carried in the structure of the
matter. This is not only the essential difference between
living things and non-living things but also the essential
difference between intelligent beings and non-or not sointelligent beings. The world of non-living matter is no
life but it is living. It is dissipative structure, it has selforganizing function (concentrative structure is the
ordering process of energy, or say it also has selforganizing function but it only organize mass and
unusable energy into organized form of energy.
concentrative structure is the other phase of state of
existence of unit universes). Under the effect of energy
flux, it makes itself more and more ordering and
complicated. When this complication and ordering
reached a critical point --- life threshold, life appeared.
Living world and non-living world are both living, but
their level of living are different.
An open system (dissipative structure) under the
effect of continuous energy flux, proceeds a selforganizing processes and makes itself more and more

UNCHALLENGEABLE BALANCE
---------THE GAME RELATIONS BETWEEN MAN
AND HIS MICROORGANISM ENVIRONMENT

Humans have radically and in globe scale changed


his environment. When he is using biologically unfriendly
agents like herbicide, insecticide and germicide, abusing
drugs, pouring chemical wastes, he is not only reducing
biomass to reduce the long term productivity of the whole
biosystem but also he is continuously exerting greater and
greater pressure on his microorganism environment,
pushing microbes into continuous and radical variation
(mutation), which in turn push human (and other
animals) immune system to react continuously and
radically. Microorganisms have their innate advantage in
variation. For every individual of them, they merely have
a short life span and small amount of biological
information and potential and so have a small biological
inertia. Though some microbes have quite large and
complex genetic structure but they seem have specialized
functions to change themselves. Human immune system
though is highly developed but human have much longer
life span and our biological information in both quantity
and potential are much larger than that of the microbes, so
have much larger biological inertia. We so this way
overloaded our immune system by forcing it into this
artificially intensified microbe environment game process
with actually little positive meaning.
What human immune system depend on to deal
with the swift variation of the microorganisms is its

highly developed complexity, adaptability, reactibility of


his immune system and the coordinating compatibility of
the central nerve system (with the increasing potential of
thinking information, the role of this coordinated
cooperation will be more and more important). But in this
game relations (with microbes) human always was and
will be in a passive, defensive strategic position. Because
it is the nature which arranged the microbes the predator
and human the prey (of course we eat more of them than
they do to us, but as far as causing disease is concerned,
we are the prey). The microbes use a small amount of
energy and time to achieve a variation to which our
immune system will have to use much larger amount of
energy and time to react. This is a war waged by a small
and flexible but omnipresent offender to a large and
complicated defensive system. The result will always be a
dynamic balance between the two sides. But these small
and flexible offenders always get more loot than cost.
This game relations between man and microbes
are functioning as a safety mechanism in the nature but of
no great significance for the main direction of evolution.
There is no necessity on the human part to pressure on
this game evolution, so that to avoid unnecessary over
pressure on his immune system to concentrate our energy
on high efficiency work (the evolution of biological
information has low efficiency, it will be replaced by the
evolution of thinking information in the unforeseeable far
future).
In the game relations with microbe environment,

equal to that of the physics. But the differences are that: in


the game with microbe environment, the reaction is
delayed in time, long termed in effects, results amplified
(chain reaction effects, effects magnified level by level
with successive diffusion and finally will affect the whole
biological system), and the effects will successively
feedback-oscillate between points of effect. It has the
natural tendency of automatically self-complicating in
system. So you can be sure there will be a reaction for an
action, but the time, place, expression form, scale and
consequence etc of this reaction is actually intrinsically
impossible to give a precise prediction.
From its fundamental meaning, the interactions
between organisms in a biosystem are benign, but not
malignant. Microbes would not be able to extinct humans
and vice versa. Actually the relations between them are
kind of a symbiosis. For instance: our large intestine and
colon actually are a microorganism cultivating tube where
we produce some extra proteins, some vitamins such as
VB group, VP, VK etc, with the remaining energy and
materials in the waste of our digested food. If there is no
bacteria in our body, fungus will multiply themselves in
our body unchecked that we shall get ill or even killed. If
there is no virus infects us so regularly, so often, when we
encounter with similar forms of life we may die in large
amount or even extinct, and lost reactibility to some forms
of cancers. Without virus, the biological world will lost a
most privileged messenger who can successively supply
new materials for the gene pool of the biosystem, actually
they are the only organisms which specialized in genetic
engineering.

Here we can speculate there are two possible cases


for AIDS: One is that it is an ancient disease but we have
separated them from us for so long that we have lost our
reactibility to their highly developed functions and
structure which is a logical result of their long term,
continuous interaction with monkeys immune system.
The development has been accumulated by step-by-step
gaming; or it is a product of our artificially intensified
environmental pressure which forces some microbes
reacted so radically that they mutate themselves into such
a variation that the genetic development in it represents
millions of years of evolution if it is done by nature [the
development has been forced by radically changed
environment (purposely artificial genetic engineering
work on virus can achieve the same results)]. Thus, our
immune system is so badly advanced (by our microbe
environment) that we will have some casualty is a logical
result. But one thing is certain that no organism in this
biosystem can extinct human except ourselves. The case
of AIDS is just an example that we have to keep step-bystep game with our microbe environment, but there is
absolutely no need to (no matter it is purposely or
unconsciously) push it. Since AIDS is also alike the else
of the microbes: they are our inevitable environment.
They are an important member of the life system, are
important coordinative, constraint and supporting factors.
We seem ultimately have to depend on natural and
artificial immunization and the unchallengeable balance
between organisms (including the balancing between
microorganisms) to deal with the virus disease (possibly
also other microbe diseases). It is not only there is no
whatever way we can extinct them, but also it is the only

way to keep ourselves safe --- to keep the step-by-step


game with the environment.
An organism, the more basic its position in a life
system, the more its importance and independence.
Human and other animals are their evolution
achievements, but themselves are still on their functional
position playing their roles, supporting the whole life
system. They do not depend on human to exist, but we
depend on them to exist. If we exert a malignant action on
them, there will inevitably be malignant reaction feeding
back, and spread out in the whole biosystem. Biosystem
has a quite strong self-adjustment function, but if the
force of a (or a combination of) malignant action exceed
the self-adjustment ability of the biosystem, there will be
disastrous consequences.
Human can not be separated with microbes, we
have to live together. This is not only because the main
aspect of relations is mutual benefiting but also the game
relations of a dynamic balancing between offence and
defence. This game relations causes the game pressure
which locks the gaming two sides in this game that they
have no way to stop it --- armament race. And this game
relation is caused (or say designed) by the nature

the way a life system exists. Which means, it is the mode
of motion of matter. Except this game relations of mutual

even if a temporary separation from the main game field
will have to pay the corresponding cost for it. For
instance: if you have not got flu for a long time, when you
get it, you may sick heavier than those who regularly gets
flu. When a disease re-strike human after a long period of
silence it will cost more casualty. When an astronaut
come back home from space after a couple of years of
isolation, he may suffer some adaptive reaction, because
he has already been a little bit lagged behind with the
game evolution level of the Earth life system. Making up
the missed lessons will cost him a little bit accordingly.
Microorganisms are a necessary component of a
life system for its functions and structures. If the microbes
can be swept out entirely on the Earth, then inevitably the
life system will create new microbes to fill this vacuum of
functions and structures. And in the case of without a
microbe environment to game with human step by step,
human are very dangerously fragile: Once a new microbe
emerges from the life system or a kind of virus is carried
to Earth by cosmic dusts or rocks, human may suffer
heavy casualty.
The fact itself that microbes were evolved and
exist in this life system means there must be rational
reasons for them to exist in this life system. It is just
because of our still quite limited knowledge and
immature selfish behaviour we label them with good
germs or bad germs. Which actually we have no right

so it is unnecessary to promote the variation of microbes
no matter purposely or unconsciously. In this game
relations, man should only try to self-conserve but not

is the war towards ourselves. It is a silly war try to destroy

microbes, it is also quite doubtfully that the chemicals we

From thermodynamic point of view, for a living

energy dissipation of a system, so it is unfavourable for
the efficiency of evolution (ordering process) of this
system. When the environmental temperature is too low,
too much energy is used on keeping this systems
temperature, which also is unfavourable for the
production and accumulation of evolution achievements.
And besides that, the rate of changes of the environmental
temperature either too small or too large both are
unfavourable for the production and accumulation of

the dissipative structure of an open system, the process of

system only can survive and evolve in a continuous flux
of energy, material and information. But all these
necessary conditions of a dissipative structure have a
precondition --- its environmental temperature (its
environmental background energy density).
So on this article, our main topic is the discussion
of the influence of the environmental background energy

organic compounds tends to get more complexity. When
its temperature fluctuating in a certain range periodically,
the ordering processes accelerated. When the solution of
the organic compounds under the action of periodic
heating --- icing, the ordering level of the organic
compounds increases quicker than just heating. So, from
this it may be speculated that day and night, the four
seasons in a year, ice period and warm period in history,
all these different level, different period of environmental
background energy density fluctuations must have
contributed to the evolution of organisms in the past
geological ages.

Different from the non-living matter systems,


living matter systems tolerance range for environment
temperature is quite limited; the change of temperature
can only be tolerated within a certain range (in this
temperature range biochemical structure of this system
can keep stable and biochemical reactions can carry on).
In tropical area, temperature oscillates in a small
amplitude range below upper limit (of living matter
system); around polar circle, temperature oscillates in a
small amplitude range above lower limit. In both areas the
fluctuations of temperature between day and night,
between four seasons are small. In the Temperate Zone,
the temperature is fluctuating in larger amplitude range
between the upper and lower limits in day and night, and
four seasons. It is especially so in north hemisphere.
If a constant high temperature is oscillating in a
small range around homeothermal lifes body
temperature, that makes the lifes body heat can not
dissipate efficiently (high environmental energy density
has a high energy potential which creates a high
resistance for the output of the energy metabolic waste --body heat. And therefore, hinders the efficient flowing of
energy flux in this system). Which is not beneficial for the
ordering process of this (organism) system. It means, the

the part of energy turns into heat from E, used in keeping
body temperature and finally be dissipated into the

is, from the incepted energy E, the part that can be used
for work (life activities and ordering) is decreased and the
part that has to be used for keeping systems temperature
(body temperature) is increased. Which also means the
costs of evolution raised and results in lower the
efficiency of evolution of this system as well. T is the
temperature of this system. It is an entropy multiplier. So
a small change in body temperature may bring a larger
influence in energy efficiency. Body temperature T has a
self-adjustment function in systems energy efficiency.
For instance, high environmental temperature will raise
the average body temperature (especially surface body
temperature) which will facilitate the dissipation of body
heat while low environmental temperature will lower the
average body temperature (especially surface body
temperature) which will decrease the rate of systems
energy dissipation.

Some life use hibernation to cope with hard
winter. As far as the individual life is concerned it is
energy efficient. But in the long term and wide range
point of view, it is not. Since the hibernation period is the
null time for evolution, so in this period the energy
dissipated by the major thermodynamic system (the
Galaxy) is invalid for its evolution. So, time utilization
efficiency low --- energy efficiency low --- evolution
efficiency low. For animals as long as their evolution rate
copes with their environment in the ecosystem it is all

influence of environmental temperature is not very great.
By building air-conditioned artificial environment,
wearing clothes of different functions, eating food of
different nutritional structures, human can adjust the
dynamic balance of the energy circulation of his own
organism system in a near-optimal-state.
Heterothermic animal such as fishes, reptiles, their
food efficiency is higher than homeothermal animals such
as mammals. That is: their efficiency in turning food into
their body tissues is higher than homeothermal animals.
But their evolution efficiency is lower than homeothermal
animals. Heterothermic animals have lower ability in
condensing energy into the evolution of information and
structure. This is not only mean their efficiency in turning
their food energy into ordering achievements is low, but
also and more important is that their contribution in
making the energy dissipated by the major
thermodynamic system (the Galaxy) into ordering
achievements is small. In todays life system, they are
only in a lower position and they accordingly serve lower
functional role in this life system. It is human who is in
the highest position in this life system today and it is his
functional role to carry on an ever-accelerating
information evolution process and take care of the whole
life system. Homeothermal animals dissipate more energy
in their life activities, but their efficiency in condensing
energy into evolution achievements is increased. This is
directly expressed by the differentiation of evolution rates
in different life forms.

While system gets more complexity, it dissipates


more energy. But its energy efficiency increased as well.
Here the energy efficiency means the efficiency in
condensing energy into evolution achievements
(information and structure). And here the energy not
only means the energy (such as food) which flows
directly through this system (such as an organism), but
also means the energy which is dissipated out by a major
thermodynamic system (such as the Galaxy) to sustain the
environment (larger system) of this system {which is a
subsystem or a subsystems subsystemof a major
(thermodynamic) system].
So, for an open system, the energy saving effort is
only efficient when it is above the lower allowable limit
of this systems present level of evolution. Otherwise it
will only cause larger waste. By an improper way of
energy saving, it may cause certain disordering in some
links of the energy circulation chain of a system, which is
a larger waste in energy.2 And by an improper way of
energy saving which decreases the efficiency of evolution
is an even larger waste of energy. Since our ecosystem is
sustained by the energy dissipation of the whole Galaxy,
if ours are the only ecosystem in this Galaxy, then the
value of the energy dissipation of the whole Galaxy is
expressed (or realized) in the evolution achievements of
our life system.

Compared to energy dissipation in corresponding


time span of the major thermodynamic system (such as
the Galaxy) which is sustaining our environment, the
energy that is directly being consumed by human is
actually negligible. To us human, the main significance of
energy saving is on environment protection and sustained
development but not on the law of entropy ever growing.
Because whatever we do it would not be able to change a
second of the timetable of natural selection (such as the
Sun burns out of fuel, our unit universe starts to collapse).
What we can do is to change ourselves --- accelerating
evolution. Only by doing so, we can increase the
possibility of our survival in the highest level of natural
selection in our unit universe --- big collapse. A sustained
development needs a healthy environment and also a
sustaining energy source, which need a long term planned
use and exploitation of energy. We must make a balance
between our predicted thinking information evolution rate
and our predicted energy consumption rate. Because
though energy is plenty there in the universe, we can only
use the part of it that our thinking information level of
that time enables us to use it. Since it is predicted that oil
will be exhausted in 30 years, so it is important to get
nuclear energy into track in advance of that day. If by that
day the environmentally friendly and cheap nuclear fusion
energy still not available for industrialized use, then we
will have to take the risk and cost of a reduced energy
consumption which will need us to further rationalize our
mode of life and mode of production which lead to a
transitional period of rationalization of energy. Then, the
age of nuclear fusion energy will come.

If the evolution rate of our thinking information is


not fast enough to enable us to avoid a difficult choice to
come, we may be cornered into that situation very soon -- we have to reduce our energy consumption, reduce our
development rate to sustain the minimal survival energy
circulation of our social system. This will reduce our
evolution speed, which means the energy efficiency of the
whole Galaxy is decreased. That is a vast waste of energy,
but if that sacrifice is for avoiding environmental
degeneration or collapse, we have to do so. Because
environmental degeneration or collapse will be a much
larger waste of energy.
The upper limit of energy consumption of our
social system can be regulated as below the upper limit of
the self-adjustments ability of thermodynamic balancing
of our environment. Otherwise there will be great waste -- ecosystem collapse will cause organisms extinction {the
evolution achievements of the whole ecosystem will be
lost, it means the energy dissipated by the thermodynamic
major system (the Galaxy) in the past billions of years is
wasted]. Even if it is only a degeneration of the
ecosystem, it is also a great waste, the degeneration of the
ecosystem inevitably will bring about the degeneration of
the whole biological system and human is not exempted.
So, the value of this environmental degeneration C = the

Since the ecosystem is an integrated entity, every
thing in it is so delicately correlated and interacted, that
any degeneration we caused in the environment will not
be able to be avoid to be reflected on ourselves. For
instance, every ton of food production increase which is
contributed by the use of poisonous agricultural chemicals
such as herbicide and insecticide will bring about much
more than ten tons of biomass loss in the soil where the
chemicals are sprayed and the water body where the
chemicals finally have to stay. Not only this will reduce
the long-term productivity of the land and water but also
trigger a long term, multi-level successive diffusive,
impacts feedback oscillating effects in the ecosystem.
How much damage has been done to the ordering process
of our life system is real hard to estimate, because the
interactions in a life system are very complicated and
prolonged. When we see a deformed frog, or a deformed
fish, or a deformed human body, it is already too late. The
disordering impacts have already affected the whole life
system. And these chemicals are especially effective to
damage our nervous systems and reproductive systems,
which means worse disordering in our biological

from a single prototype life so share the same basic

Every level of natural selection (e.g. extinction
war, population explosion and environment collapse,
different levels of cosmic catastrophe) is corresponded to
the corresponding level of evolution, and every level of
natural selection also corresponds with its corresponding
span of time. This means, as far as the advanced
intelligent life [which represents the evolution results of
its own supporting major thermodynamic system (such as
the Galaxy)] is concerned, to accomplish a corresponding
amount of evolution work in a corresponding time span is
a hard mission which is assigned by the nature. Because it
gives us only two choices and there are only two results in
every critical moment of natural selection --- die out or

THERMODYNAMIC AESTHETICS
The essence of beauty is order (as scientists have
already told us). Beauty is not only the results of
efficiency but also has the effects of efficiency.
The so called beauty of spirit, beauty of character,
beauty of manner, beauty of thoughts, are actually the
reflection of high level of evolution of thinking
information (or call it wisdom).
As far as thermodynamics is concerned, beauty
and wisdom are equivalent in both values and effects. The
value is measured with the energy condensed into them
and the effect is reflected by the energy efficiency they
represent.
The value of wisdom is not self-evident. Its value
has to be proved indirectly by the effects it exerts on the
outside world. Since order is the result of the dissipation
of energy while order also increase the efficiency of the
utilization of energy, so, beauty itself directly reflects the
value of energy which is condensed in it, while it also
reflects directly the efficiency of its energy utilization. So,
beauty is self-evident.Beauty is a manifestation of order.
Beauty is order. And ordering achievements are
accumulated by energy dissipation. The only measure of
the level of order (or say the value of order) is the amount
of energy dissipated for it (or say condensed into it). So,
beauty actually is the energy which is condensed in the

information and structure of matter. And in turn, the


highly ordered information and structure of matter will
have higher energy efficiency.
So this is the general statement: The essence of
beauty is order, and its effect is efficiency. There is no
other way to form order but energy dissipation, and the
only measure of the level of order (or say the value of
order) is the amount of energy dissipated for it (or say
condensed into it). It is true that when you input
knowledge and wisdom into the forming of order, it will
greatly accelerate the ordering process (and it is the way
nature arranges the ordering process as this process
evolves), but since knowledge and wisdom (which is
thinking information) is no more than the condensed
achievements of energy dissipation which is collected and
concentrated level by level from the original energy
dissipation (for our galaxy is concerned, it is the super
black hole)1, so it is no more than the feedback of the
achievements of energy dissipation (or say condensed
energy) back into the process of ordering. So, after all, it
is the energy dissipation, which is the primary source and
driving force of ordering (of mass state matter and
information).
Efficiency principle is a universal principle that
directs the process of ordering. It is the efficiency
principle which moulds the beauty of this world.
Therefore, the thermodynamic meaning of beauty
is: economizing energy.

MYTH AND REALITY


-------- WHY MAN SELFISH
Communist theory described an idealized, humane
and noble society. But it did not explain the world
according to its innate nature and arbitrarily assert that by
meticulous and painstaking ideological work, by building
up a society with flourishing material wealth, people will
become ideal figures of the spirit of absolute selflessness
and whole heartedly for the public. And the society will
become the society of dedicating what one can offer and
taking what one need. Communist theory gave a holy
torch to the oppressed and suffering people, but it did not
lead them to the ideal holy temple.
The existence and development of organisms
depend on a natural attribute of living things --- the
selfishness of gene. The selfishness of gene determines
the selfishness of individual organisms. The selfishness of
individual organisms is the base of competitive evolution
mechanism of the world of all living creatures.1 And it is
also the base of the interactive conditioning each other
mechanisms of the human society. The selfishness of
gene is the basic law of the mode of motion of living

irrelevant with ethics and moral principles. Selfishness is
a very stable attribute. Selfish behaviour strategy is a very
stable strategy. Some times selfish behaviour strategy
changes its forms but its nature never change. For
instance, people in some circumstances sacrifice
themselves for their kin; for their nation, for whole human
beings.
The assumed communist society is based on the
hypothesis that everyone can be selfless and
wholeheartedly for the public, every individual adopts
altruistic behaviour strategy (here we can not assume
genes altruism, because genes selfishness is the law of
motion of living matter. It will not be influenced by mans
will and will not be changed by anything). So in this
society there must be a competitive environment
condition which makes altruistic behaviour strategy a
stable strategy (if someone say communism depend on
everyones self-consciousness and there would not exit a
competitive environment condition, well discuss this
case later). But this kind of competitive environment
condition not only never heard of but also unimaginable.
Think of it, altruistic behaviour strategy means selfsacrifice, continuing self-sacrifice, and push it to the
extreme. This will bring a continuous decline to
individual and finally to perish. When individuals wither
away, this behaviour strategy loses its executors and
perishes too. The more active and more thorough executor
of the altruistic behaviour the sooner he perishes and the
less active and less thorough executor of the altruistic
behaviour the more he benefits and more chance for
survival and development. But finally he will perish too,

this proved the stability of egoist behaviour strategy from
the negative side and proved the instability of altruistic
behaviour strategy from the positive side. Altruistic
behaviour strategy is an extremely unstable strategy. It is
a negative strategy, a lifeless strategy, a doomed strategy.
Because of the innate instability of this behaviour
strategy, so the competitive environment condition which
can make this behaviour strategy stable will not exist.
Actually, there is no such behaviour strategy in the real
world. All the behaviours that take the form of altruism
are just a little bit more complicated forms of egoist
behaviour. In the most noble and pure deeds ever done by
living creatures, you can find an essential and profound
motive and reason which based totally on selfishness. But
let us use our imagination to give it a simulation, to see
what is it like in a society where every one adopts true
altruistic behaviour strategy. In this society, there would
be no competition, no individual interest. Self-sacrifice
was the eternal theme. People would not have the
ambition and initiative to pursue his individual
expectations and prospects. There was only one single
ideal --- self-sacrifice. Everyone only want to contribute
but no one would like to be benefited (but if there is
somebody who overtly agree but covertly oppose and
practice jobbery, what will happen?). As the outstandings
are the most active and most thorough, they perish first.
The quality of population get worse and worse (negative
selection). Finally, the whole population extinguishes in a
passive, hopeless and miserable atmosphere.

the reality is a little bit sophisticated. People will
indomitably stick to egoist behaviour strategy. But, since
the pressure from the society is too great that it will affect
peoples interests, people have to prepare another set of
things in mind and orally to deal with the society and hide
their selfish motives and egoist calculations deep in heart
and practice it in private. Here let us call this phenomenon
dual personality, and this society dual personality society.
This society will not whither away miserably like the true
and thoroughly altruistic society we imagined above, but
will drag on in the consequence of increasing social
entropy, social ordering process damped and with a
higher general social lost, until the development of
internal and external contradictions corrects this morbid
society.
If someone says communist society depend on
peoples self-consciousness and does not have a
competitive environment condition, therefore, then, what

describing the state of matter with entropy, its meaning is: The
increase of the degrees of disorder is indicated by increase of entropy;
the decrease of degrees of disorder (which means ordering) is
indicated by decrease of entropy (negative entropy). There is an

phenomena. Actually both can be used to describe social phenomena.

will happen in this circumstances? Totally depend on


every individuals self-consciousness and do not have a
competitive environment condition, it means in a society,
every individual self consciously, voluntarily and strictly
practices self-restraint and adopts altruistic behaviour
strategy. There are no struggles between individuals
behaviour strategies, no interest conflicts. So in the whole
society, competitive environment condition would not
exist. Can this society be established? Let us just put aside
the discussion of whether it can be established or not for
the time being, because it sounds so nice and so ideal
therefore let us just imagine that it can be established.
Then, let us discuss two possible cases in this society.
One case is that in this society every one without
exception, strictly adopts altruistic behaviour strategy.
This case we have already discussed above. In this
society, for every individual and the whole society are
hopeless, lifeless and doomed. The other case, and it is
the more possible case, in this altruistic Utopia, by chance
or by accident (actually say inevitable will be more
suitable) appear a couple of perverts. These guys want to
try egoist behaviour strategy and see its effects. But once
they try they can not be stopped. Their behaviour strategy
will not encounter any rival and extremely successful
(especially when they pretend to be the same as others,
even more altruistic). Now, there were two different
behaviour strategies already, and inevitably would
differentiate the winner and loser. In this case, there will
be two circumstances; one is that the altruists see the
egoists having their way and peerless, but none of the
altruists have waver in the least and no recanter. In this
circumstances, the dissemination of egoist behaviour
strategy can only depend on the increase of population of

the egoists which are caused by their success in the


struggle of survival. Though this process is quite slow,
anyway egoist behaviour strategy will dominate the whole
society finally. Then, the struggle will set off among
egoists. Another circumstances is that the altruists hearts
are not as dead as ash. They see the inexorable result of
the struggle between the two behaviour strategies and turn
to adopt egoist behaviour strategy. Since the speed of
dissemination of thoughts is much quicker, so egoist
behaviour strategy will dominate the whole society
swiftly. Then the struggle will still set off among egoists
nevertheless. So in consider of all the circumstances we
have discussed above, the communist society that does
not have competitive environment conditions not to
mention how to establish, at least it can not carry on.

HOW TO BE SELFISH
Gene is the most basic living matter. And its most
basic natural attribute is its selfishness.1 This is the mode
of motion of living matter. It is the law of nature and will
not be affected by mans will.
Here we talk about the selfishness of gene, of
individual. The meaning we are using is its
sociobiological meaning. Sociobiology studies the mode
of motion of individuals and the interactions between
them. Here, the concept selfishness belongs to sciences
category. It only reflects objective reality. Man can only
discover it, use it, but can not change it. The selfishness
we talk about in our daily life usually uses its ethical
meaning. Its meaning is defined by the moral standard of
the society we living in. it belongs to ethical category. It
is the reflection of human interest conflicts in ethics.
Here, its meaning, its standard is man regulated.
Gene is living matter which is the object that
natural science studies. The
behaviour of gene
determines the basic behaviour of human which is the
object social science studies. So gene is the common
material base which links natural science and social
science. Mode of motion of gene is the common object
for natural science and social science to study. Selfishness

should be unified on the base of science. It is a trend also


a direction to endeavour. This way it benefits the solving
of actual problems. To achieve this, need the concept of
selfishness in ethics drawing close to its correspondent in
sociobiology but not the contrary.
In daily life when we say (here we use its meaning
in ethics) a certain person is quite selfish, actually we
mean (here we use its meaning in sociobiology) this
persons selfishness is low-graded, irrational or
unscientific. When he pursues his interests, he can not
give considerations to the interests of other individual or
the public. In daily life when we say (ethical meaning) a
certain person is generous, noble, actually we mean
(sociobiological meaning) his selfishness is high-graded
and scientific. Except peoples different beings effect the
level of requirement, peoples knowledge and intelligence
level also plays an important roll here.
If we mix the different meanings of selfishness
in ethics and sociobiology, it will make the discussion
difficult. So, in this article we use its sociobiological
meaning.
Behaviour is a unique mode of motion only for
living matter and selfishness is the most basic mode of
behaviour for living mater. It is the foundation for all
other behaviours. Selfishness itself can not be blamed. As
the basic law of mode of motion of living matter, it directs
the evolution of the entire life world. It is the foundation
of existence of life. It runs through the whole process of
living activities. It is the foundation of competitive
evolution mechanism and also the foundation of

interactive conditioning mechanism (law, regulation,


institution, ethics, etc.) for human social systems. To such
an important law of nature, do not understand, do not
study and do not recognize, will only bring negative
effects to social development. And this has been proved
by previous social practices already.
In reality, all the behaviours of all the living
beings are selfish behaviours without exception. The socalled altruistic behaviour is actually nothing more than a
selfish behaviour with a little bit more complicated form
of expression. For instance people sometimes sacrifice
themselves for their kin, for their nation, for human
beings.
We are for the scientific, rational and high-graded
selfish behaviour, and against the unscientific, irrational
and low-graded selfish behaviour. The reason is simple --it is the direction of the ordering processes of nature.
At different stages of development, organisms
have different levels of selfish behaviour. On the Earth,
all the living things (except human) are adopting an
instinctive, naturally rational selfish behaviour. It is
primitive, simple and its code of conducts is conditioned
and regulated directly by natural selection mechanisms.
Here let us call it instinct. The thinking ability of human
have interfered the instinctive, naturally rational selfish
behaviour, but not yet set up an entirely scientific and
rational selfish behaviour, still in a transitional period.
Here let us call it immature selfish behaviour or lowgrade selfish behaviour. In the future, human will set up
a mode of scientific, rational selfish behaviour, which is

based on highly developed scientific knowledge and


theory.
From the changes of mode of behaviour in
different stages of a mans life, we can see the influence
imposed by the level of knowledge and intelligence. The
selfishness of an infant is direct and simple, quite the
same of an animal, just following the instinct. When a
little bit grown up, children will get some thinking ability
and begin to do some wrong things. They need education.
When it is the prime of life, man has the highest level of
knowledge and intelligence and the highest level of mode
of behaviour. When he is old, nerve cells in his brain are
dying out in a large scale, antennal nerves begin to shrink
comprehensively and memories are losing and his
intelligence level is coming down as well as his behaviour
level. There is a positive correlation between knowledge
and intelligence level and behaviour level.
Scientific and rational selfish behaviour
necessarily will accord with the essential interests of
society and in the meantime accord with the essential
interests of the executor as well. The contrary,
unscientific and irrational selfish behaviour will
necessarily contradict with the essential interests of both
the executor and thesociety. Instinctive and naturally
rational selfish behaviour and scientifically rational
selfish behaviour are both safe, beneficial and positive
behaviour. They are within the benignant regulation of the
nature. Human behaviour is in a dangerous and painful
transitional period of from immature selfish behaviour to
scientific rational selfish behaviour (we have passed the
development stage of naturally rational selfish behaviour.

it backwards is in vein and irrational). But this is the only


pass. Man has no choice but push through. In this stage,
the positive effects of benignant natural regulation are not
in full control of human behaviour, but the nature is still
in full control in a higher level of natural regulation
(malignant natural regulation) and awaiting to act --human extinction) [the external and internal ecological
environment of human being are deteriorating until they
totally collapse (internal ecological environment crisis
here means the accumulation of genetic defects and gene
deterioration of organism)]. Then it will start all over
again and continue the process of evolution (but the new
intelligent beings still have to go through this transitional
period when they developed to this stage). This way the
cost of evolution will be increased (refer to concept of
cost in this book). The nature only acts according to the
law of motion of matter and pay no respect of other
things. As for our human evolution achievements, it only
has to be cherished by ourselves.
Man conquer the nature, this famous slogan will
be put into history book as a typical example of the
immature (or low-grade) mode of selfish behaviour in the
infantile period of human being. Man is a part of the
nature. Man belongs to the nature but not vice versa. The
relationships between the nature and man are the ones that
of an organism and its cells. So, the modern slogan of
nowadays: Man and the nature coexist in harmony is
really a milestone in the transitional period of our selfish
behaviour from immature to scientific and rational.

of the individual of organisms. And this basic mode of
behaviour determines human social activities after all. So,
it seems not necessary to discuss such topic as the human
nature is egoist or altruist. But set to work out a mode of
scientific and rational selfish behaviour and a competitive
environment condition which makes such mode of
behaviour a stable strategy. This mode of behaviour will
have to unite the fundamental interests of individuals with
the fundamental interests of society and also the interests
of the nature as well. This way we can make human go
along a healthy track and sustaining development.
Someone worries that once people know that
selfishness is the human nature, it will be hard to rule
them and there will be great disorders in the world.
Actually, it is the contrary; only when people get a
scientific understanding of their own intrinsic nature, it is
possible for them to weigh and calculate their own
interests in a scientific and rational way. And the
interactions of such mode of behaviour will create a
highly ordered, rational society. Only such kind of society
can open up the way to a bright future.
Since if a ruler or a ruling class has low level of
thoughts and behaviour, they will bring about great
damage to the society, especially in autocracy. So it is
important to regulate the rulers behaviour with scientific
and rational principle. And the rulers have to study how to
bring accord their interests with the interests of the whole
society. And this may lead them a new view to the

SOCIAL YARDSTICKS
Social yardsticks, are the standards with which the
ruling class of a society uses to measure or judge people
and their deeds. To this society, these standards have a
qualitative determining meaning. It determines what kind
of people will be in what kind of position, and what kind
of deeds will get what kind of result. Actually, these
standards are the internal competitive environment
condition of this society, which is imposed by the ruling
class. The more the society can make the efforts of
individuals for their survival and development agrees with
the survival and development of this society, the more
rational is this society. And this kind of society
necessarily will have to have a rational social yardstick.
The role of this social yardstick is to organically unify the
efforts of individuals for survival and development with
that of the society, and make them going the same
direction.
A rational social yardstick should only use
peoples contributions for the society in the fields of
economy, politics, social, science, technology and culture
as a standard, to distribute universal exchange --currency and power (which is confined by laws and
regulations and not allowed for free exchange). Money
and power gained this way not only make people feel
even and square but more important is that it brings the
interests of individuals and that of the society together.
Another case is social credit. It is usually through an

their ability in practice. If some of them are proved not

attitude, and relation with the masses as standards to
dispense all interests, that will lead peoples efforts
towards the opposite direction with the fundamental
interests of the society. This kind of inefficiency will only
contribute to the societys poverty, turbulence, and
rudimental. This social yardstick is an intrinsic irrational,
a man made irrational, not like the formers irrational
which is caused by non-man-made, history restricted, byproduced by efforts for maximizing rationalization (it is
rooted by the differences in peoples intelligence, physical
power, opportunity etc.).
Under such social yardstick, vast social labour and
material wealth are wasted. The purpose of the rulers is to
concentrate as much power as possible in their own
hands, and accord peoples thoughts and behaviours as
much as possible with the ruling classs every interests. In
short terms view, this goal is reached; but in a long
terms view, since their social yardstick contradicted the
fundamental interests of the society, so the interests of
every member of this society, including the ruling class,
will be infringed.
A social yardstick not only has to be fair and
square but also has to be scientific and rational. Otherwise
this society will be stuck in an inefficient state. Take an
example of the ancient China:

your political, social, and economical status, if only you
can prove your excellence through strict examination, you
can get power and social status. But what were the
standards for this examination selection? They were the
familiarity and mastering level of the eight-part essay (a
literary composition prescribed for the imperial civil
service examinations, known for its rigidity of form and
poverty of ideas), and the Four Books and the Five

by authority of those times). When all the talented people
in China were concentrating on those eight-part essay and
moralities, the Europeans had stopped burning those
scientists, because burnt Bruno, the Earth still turn around

issuing metals, titles, special permissions and patents to
those who got contributions and achievements in the
fields of economy, politics, social, science, technology,

small island called Britain on the other side of the Earth
and defeated the Central Imperial China which got four

splendid civilization.
It is not the solders not brave, and it is not the

All the sense --- pleasant sensation, pain,

as the purpose of life and subject human kind to damage
and degeneration. Recognize this but still can not
extricate himself, then, this is a weak-willed, spineless

enjoyment of rational quantity and quality is beneficial for
human survival and development, but it is only limited to
those which contribute to human survival and evolution.

Human evolution went through millions of years.
It was an extremely hard and bitter struggle with
innumerable sacrifice. Organism evolution underwent
billions of years of cruel and tedious process. The living
world is the result of the motion of matter. It is a form of
existence of matter, a necessity, a part of the universe.
Intelligent beings are the high level of evolution of the
universe, are the essences of the universe. But whether
they can develop into super intelligent beings and master
their own fate in the universe --- that is, not be affected by
universal catastrophe, still depend on if the environment
conditions permit or not (for instance, at the present stage

universe, immortal (as a whole) and free. While the
intelligent beings which can not reach a necessary stage
of development will be doomed. So, even high pressure
and intensified competition will cost pain and some lives,
it is still rational and worthwhile.
HAPPINESSS AND THE DESTINATION OF LIFE
Some people take sensory enjoyment and cheerful
frame of mind as happiness. Some others take the pursuit
and discovery of truth as happiness. Whatever one takes
as happiness it doesnt really much matter. It can be a
personal opining and choice. But if someone tell you that
happiness is the destination of life, that surely is a
completely misleading. Happiness or pain is only mans
perception of his existence (state). How can it be the
destination of life? Can ones perception of his (own)
existence (state) be the destination of his (own) life?
Actually, the destination of life is very simple, but very

HOW TO RULE
In a society there is ruler and ruled. The ruler
holds power. He can use means as policy, law, education,
punishment and reward to regulate the competitive
environment conditions which peoples behaviour
strategy according to. His social responsibility and
obligation are in positive proportion with his power. The
ruled had nearly no choice for his behaviour strategy. No
matter how clearly he realizes the necessity and
rationality of the optimal behaviour strategy, as long as
the competitive environment condition does not permit,
he has to adopt the stable strategy. If in a society, people
keep doing wrong things against the fundamental interests
of this society, then the first to blame is the ruler, because
the competitive environment conditions he designed and
regulated for the people is irrational and unscientific. He
got the leading power and he got the responsibility.
Ruler also has his own competitive environment
conditions which is constituted of rulers and their interests
groups of other societies, natural environment and the
competition from within his own society. So actually, he
can not just do whatever he likes. He can only adopt the
stable strategy. The so-called politics is a game of no
rules sounds like it but is groundless. The main capital a
ruler uses to deal with outside competition is the total
strength of his country; and the main capital he uses to
deal with inside competition is his achievements in his
ruling (the results of his social functioning). So, his
success or failure first of all depend on the rational and

ruling.
A qualified ruler should have a different behaviour
strategy with the ruled. He is controlling the competitive
environment conditions that the whole societys
behaviour strategy depends on. He can regulate and
condition peoples behaviours. He must fuse his own
interests into that of the whole society (it does not mean
he do not have his own interests, but his highest interests
is to safeguard the interests of the whole society). If he
pursues his interest without showing consideration of
general interests, that means he betrayed the responsibility
and obligation which his power imposed to him. He
betrayed his social function and he finally infringed his
own interests.
Generally speaking, human is the ruler of the
Earth and the whole Solar system. But if he abuses his
power, merely absorbed in his short term interests and
ignores the healthy survival and development of other
organisms and inorganic environment, he is finally
infringing his own interests. His ruling status and power
will be negated by his environment. He does not perform
his social function properly; naturally his status and
power will be negated.
We need rational thinking to rule our society; we
must take great care do not let money and force get their
total rule on us. Because they are blind and dangerous
forces; they only focus on their short term interests and do
not care what will lead to the world (not even

ARMAMENT RACE AND WAR


Armament race, as a form of expression of
competitive evolution mechanisms in the nature, is a very
stable strategy. At the moment still can not imagine what
kind of competitive environment conditions can make it
an unstable strategy. Probably this kind of competitive
environment conditions does not exist at all. But refer to
the positive role of competitive evolution mechanisms in
the nature, you may speculate that the armament race
might have some important function in human
development.
Like that of the economy, armament race is one of
the most stable, most lasting game pressure on human
progress. Even in the idlest period of the world economy,
armament race still does not reduce its momentum. So, if
the armament race can not be avoided, at least it can be
rationally guided and utilized as an impetus for the
progress of science and economy. It is especially so, when
the armament race turns from quantity to quality (high
technology).
Though, the armament race can not be avoided, it
is not improbable to avoid an extermination war. When
the means of war makes the victor no gain, probably still
not quite enough to stop him, but when a war makes both
sides a suicide, it is quite positively no mentally healthy
people will have interest of starting it. And it is especially
so, when the scientific and technical means of defensive

THE PRINCIPLE OF EFFICIENCY


If we turn the basic formula of the cost of
evolution Cev = Q/X upside down,1 we can get the basic
formula of evolution efficiency: ee = X/Q , which stated
a universal and basic principle --- efficiency principle: On
a given amount of energy dissipation Q achieve the
highest level and largest amount of information evolution
X.
Here, ee = evolution efficiency.
This formula manifested the basic relationship
between energy and information and this relationship
represents energy --- information efficiency.
After all, the cost of evolution is (the dissipation
of) energy and the achievement of evolution is (the
development of) information. So the ratio between them
can be used to express evolution efficiency (X/Q which
means how many units of information are produced by
the dissipation of one unit of energy) or cost of evolution
(Q/X which means how many units of energy are
dissipated for the production of one unit of information).
Because of the principle of efficiency that the
energy dissipation can mould the ordering (in the process
of pursuing efficiency, order is formed). This is because it

is the law of motion of matter that: ordered information,


structure and motion are efficient; and efficiency only can
be achieved through ordered information, structure and
motion. All matter observe the laws of thermodynamics
and the basic law of thermodynamics is the efficiency
law.
The information which can escape the big
collapse of the unit universe is the effective information
on unit universe level. The ratio between this information
and the total energy dissipation of this unit universe after
the Big Bang is the (energy --- information) evolution
efficiency in this cycle of mass --- energy transformation
of this galaxy. Since the minimum and maximum mass of
a galaxy is regulated by nature and do not allow infinite
mass congregation, so the mass of a big collapse is
relatively constant, so the total energy dissipation of a
galaxy is also relatively constant. So, here the variable
can only be the effective information. Its quality and
quantity will decide the level of evolution efficiency of
our galaxy in this cycle of mass --- energy transformation.
X/Q is the ratio between the information achieved
and the amount of energy dissipated for this achievement.
We can call it information --- energy ratio (here we
abbreviate it as I/E ratio). I/E ratio can be used to measure
or express the evolution efficiency of matter of different
structural level. In application of the unit universe level,
we define X as the number of species of intelligent life in
this galaxy which can escape this cycle of mass --- energy
transformation, and Q = Qdu which is the total energy
dissipation during the time span from this galaxy forming
till dies. So the evolution efficiency of this cycle of mass -

152

-- energy transformation of this galaxy is ee = X/Qdu.


Actually ee > X/Qdu because the movements of the
galaxy are also contributing to the ordering of the
structure and information of the galaxy group, but since
we do not know much about the galaxy group and also we
want to simplify the problem, so we just express it as ee
= X/Qdu.
Since only X species of intelligent life are free
from big collapse, they are the effective information
(which include all their thinking information, biological
information and the information of their life system) on
the galaxy level. And the rest of the galaxy (including its
mass, energy, information) all will be recycled as
evolution wastes and turned into ordered energy for the
next galaxy . Effective information can be preserved as
a result of a process while the rest of the information is
recycled in the process of that process. They only serve in
this process as process information but not initial (input)
or result (output) information. A result information of a
lower level process may not necessarily be the result
information of a higher level process but it can (actually it
has nowhere to go but) be put into a higher level (or
parallel or even feedback to lower level) process as an
input information, and so on. Process information is
generated and eliminated in its process and it only serve
in this process while input and output information link
between processes and be passed on through processes, so
they evolve continuously. Here we define the effective
information as the result information (output information)
of a process. But, since the output information of one
process are in the mean time also the input information of
another process, the same information can be called input

or output information just depending on the relations with


the process which it linked. The evolution process of
effective information is also in a pyramid structure
(actually it is exactly the same pyramid of matter
evolution). In this world, all the motion of matter follows
the principle of energy efficiency (after all, any efficiency
can be concluded as energy efficiency, e.g. time
efficiency, material efficiency, etc.). Evolution starts from
ordered energy, through a series of middle links and
different levels of systems, to produce the final
achievements of evolution --- effective information. This
is the energy --- information evolution process.
The principle of efficiency (or call it principle of
evolution efficiency or principle of energy efficiency.
They are the same thing) is the law of motion of matter. It
would not be moved by mans will. The mode of motion
of any structural level of matter reflects this universal
principle (e.g. galaxy group, galaxy, solar system, star,
planet, ecosystem, human society, organisms, mineral
crystal, molecule, atom, elementary particle, etc.). They
all tend to exit in the most energy economic way while
tend to achieve the as ordering as possible structure and
information and as evolution process going on the
efficiency of this system accelerating. The transformation
movement of mass and energy is constantly going on.
And the mass --- energy transformation movement of
every level of structure of matter not only serve to
produce effective information of this level but also
contribute the ordering of higher level of structure of
matter and its information. But all levels of structure of
matter and its movement process do not leave any thing
behind it but effective information (of their corresponding

154

level). So effective information is the essence of matter, is


the destination of motion of matter (or say the destination
of the evolution of matter). There is nothing goes
anywhere (nothing can jump out of constant recycling
process) but effective information, which will be released
from a process as an output (result) and passed on to
higher level of matter evolution as input and so on.
Effective information will infinitely approach absolute
truth (though will never reach it).
Why matter spontaneously ordering itself and go
on complicating (we call this processes evolution)?
Matter ordering itself because of the fact that the
state of structure of matter of higher energy level is less
stable than that of the lower energy levelmatter. It is the
natural tendency for matter of higher energy level to
release a portion of the energy (dissipation is the intrinsic
nature of energy) and fall into a more stable state of
existence and thismore stable state of existence happen to
have more complicated and ordered structure. So in short,
there are some simple reasons for matter ordering itself:
first, energy tends to dissipate out. Second, when matter
dissipates outits energy, it tends to form
morethermodynamically stable structure. Third, matter in
more stable state happens to have more complicated and
ordered structure. You see, the most complicated thing
(evolution) is caused by the simplest reasons (the three
simplest natural tendencies).

As there are quite amount of misunderstandings

existence of intelligent lives (more accurately it is
eternal life with energy state mass state
transforming ability).

Eternal life is the necessary result of the evolution


of information. It is a natural process. It would not
be able to happen (to reach that level of
complexity and ordering) in the next few million
years (probably a few billion years). Because the
enormous amount of energy input into the forming
of the highest level of complexity and ordering
only have to go through the millions of geological
years to regulate the system energy circulation
within the allowable upper and lower limits of this
system while it is evolving in the highest possible
speed (which is regulated by its environment and
the laws of motion of matter) the nature can
arrange. Otherwise there will only be some
degrees of setbacks. Remember that energy

Clone is not the eternal life we talk about. Clone is


just copying the same biological information.
There is no increase in information, no evolution,
but lost the former copys thinking information
(new life have to learn); while the life produced by
sexual generational reproduction is the new
information generated from the repermutation and
recombination of
two sets of different
information. Scientist tells us that we have been
evolving in the speed of 0.15 million more neural
cells per generation in the last few million years.
While the clone life will make nearly no progress
[we say nearly because any dissipative structure
(any form of life is a dissipative structure) in the
process of interacting with its environment will
have the tendency of complicating itself.
Remember sexual life forms are evolved from
primitive asexual life forms]. Clone generation
lags far behind sexual generation on evolution rate
but only stand at the same starting point of
thinking information potential (new life have to
learn).

Both eternal life and clone life is the existence of


asexual reproduction of individual lives. But

eternal life is the continuous, non-generational,


asexual, high level evolutionary mode of existence
while clone life is generational, asexual, repetitive
copying of the same information. Eternal life is the
mode of evolutionary existence of an individual
under the effect of the interaction of its biological
information (field) and thinking information
(field) and its environment. This mode of
existence is very dynamic and progressive, which
has the essential difference with the mode of
existence of clone life that is rather static,
repetitive and passive. At the present stage and the
foreseeable future (probably more than a billion
years), there is not much (or not strong enough)
interactions between our biological information
and thinking information. So we still have to
depend on sexual generational mode of existence
as the main mode of our biological information
evolution as we did for millions of years.
5.

But we should point out that though clone is not


efficient by itself alone, nevertheless multiple
mode of existence (include clone life) parallely
applied can optimize evolution efficiency.
Theoretically speaking, in the future, clone can be
made easily and cheaply and the successful rate
will be very high. You can just use the cells in
your own body and an artificial womb to produce
a clone, no one else need to be involved. If the

So its thinking information potential is

more nearer to the way eternal life works than the way
our modern biological and medical science do.
Evolution is system evolution and system has to
be balanced. Efficiency is system efficiency and it can
only be achieved with a systematically balanced way. The
evolution rate of a species can only be regulated within
the allowable range limits of the systems that it belongs
and the subsystem that composed of this species. It must
be in the dynamic and interactive balance and harmony
with systems structure, function and information. And it
must be in dynamic and interactive balance and harmony
with its own systems structure, function and information.
Otherwise it would not achieve efficiency. The
relationship is highly correlated and highly dynamic and
interactive in the life system, and every thing is evolving
and the relations are evolving. There is constant
movement and in every single moment the amount and
complexity of work involved is unimaginable. This is far
beyond human handling power (probably also beyond any
intelligent creatures handling power).
There are two extremities that intelligent lives can
not handle: one is extreme complexity, and another is
extreme simplicity. They are both ordering processes but
in opposite directions (or say it is the two opposite phases
in one ordering process). Extreme complexity starts from
the energy rich matter black holejet out which arrange the
order of complicating of mass state matter; extreme
simplicity starts from the matter that black hole suck in
which arrange the order of simplifying of energy state
matter. For the forming of extreme complexity [the
evolution of mass state matter (which is dissipative

evolution of energy state matter (which is concentrative
structure)], it can only be the job of the nature. Nothing
can arrange the order of complexity of the evolution of
mass state matter but the dissipation of energy (mass state
matter evolve into order by complicating); nothing can
form the order of simplicity of the evolution of energy
state matter but the gravitation of mass (energy state
matter evolve into order by simplifying). Black hole is
concentrative structure and dissipativestructure in one

Efficiency is system efficiency, efficient system is

Finally, after eternal life is achieved in a certain
stage of our evolution process (say one billion years AD),
our thinking information potential and biological

links the different levels of processes.
Since there must be a way to release the effective
information of this cycle of mass energy transformation
of this galaxy and any hard body device seems unlikely to
make it, so it is reasonable and justified for us to baldly
speculate that the means which the nature arrange the
galaxy to release its effective information is the energy
state existence of eternal life. It is the ultimate mode of
existence of intelligent life.
There are only two fundamental and essential
thresholds in the universe. That is the two transformation
moments for the life cycle of the cells of the universe --galaxy born and die. Correspondingly there are only two
fundamental and essential thresholds in the state of living
matter --- non-living matter becomingliving matter and
intelligent life becoming eternal life with mass-energy
transformation ability. It is the reflection of universe
holographic principle into living matterexistence. When
thisprinciple reflectedinto fundamental particle level, it is

that the time spans between particle changes into wave

TALK ABOUT OBJECTIVE


EXISTENCE THEORY (1)
Since there are some misunderstandings about
objective existence theory, here we give some further
explanation.
There is only one universe [which contains
countless of unit universes (we should rather call them
Big Bang units to prevent misunderstanding)], which is
startless, endless, boundless, always in movement (which
do not have an initial driving force nor a final stopping
force). The laws of motion of matter are the same in the
universe. The intrinsic attributes of matter are the same in
the universe. Except matter existence there is the nonmatter existence; except matter existence and non-matter
existence there is no other existences.
There are some principles we may pre-postulate to
facilitate our thinking. Since for these principles it seems
unlikely we can prove them with scientific experiments in
the foreseeable future, so we have to postulate them with
philosophical inference.
The law of unity of laws of motion of matter: the
laws of motion of mater are the same in the universe.
Which means it is not the laws which can be
different in different conditions but the way we stated or
interpreted them may not be completely conform to the
reality yet. And there are many laws we have not yet
found.

Seeking Answers

The law of unity of matter: the intrinsic quality of


matter is the same in the universe.
Matter can have different forms and the forms can
change but it does not mean there can be different matter.
Matter of different forms will show different attributes but
the intrinsic quality of matter is the same in the universe.
The law of unity of universe: there is only one
universe, which is startless, endless, boundless and always
in motion.
In view of the principles mentioned in objective
existence theory, there are no short cuts such as space
tunnel or space-time tunnel. If anyone want to travel in
space, be prepared it is a long journey. The so-called cell
of the universe is just a name to represent a certain
quantity of matter and space that form the structure and
function to perform mass --- energy transformation, its
magnitude is regulated by nature). And there is no such
thing as parallel universe. As the word itself representing,
universe have included every thing exists. Universe is the
objective existence.
It is because we are finite in every way that causes
us to think something infinite is sort of illogical. It is true
that we can not directly prove infinity (maybe the
unprovability is a prove of infinity or say unprovability is
an intrinsic attribute of infinity). But we can indirectly
prove it by inference and analogizing. For instance, (the
ratio of circumference to diameter of circle), computer is
still running but no sign of finding the ultimate figure.

Seeking Answers

177

And there is no way we can trace down to find the largest


or the smallest number. There are many other examples in
mathematics which show us the sign of infinity. The law
of the indestructibility of matter has showed us that
matter is a continuous existence which means it is
infinity. And this in turn, also proved that the space which
the matter moves in and time which the processes of
movement of matter goes along also are infinity.
Matter always in movement, because: energy and
mass are the two basic existence modes of matter and they
will transform to each other under certain conditions. And
these conditions are acquired (or say presented) by the
very existence of the universe itself. These transform
movements are mutual inducing and mutual causing. So it
will not cost energy or mass for this periodical oscillation
transform movements (which means there will be no wear
out or exhaustion). Also because the universe is infinite so
it has no environment and no matter can be thinned out to
anywhere else. On the universe level, mass-energy
transformation movements are the continuous, periodical
oscillation of countless of forming and disappearing of
galaxies. These movements are startless and endless (they
do not have an initial driving force or a final stopping
cause). And any form of matter movement, fundamentally
speaking, is initiated, caused or maintained by the
processes of these basic mass-energy transformation
movements. So it is impossible for the movements of
matter to be stopped.

Why you say the disordering in our biological
information is accumulating? I do not feel anything? The
fish in the river is alive and the herbicides, insecticides
and other pollutants are all in the allowable concentration
in the water, why some people still not happy about it?
Let us see how the environment and our will exert
the influences on our genetic information. The acquired
characters (they can be ordered or disordered information)
in a generation (gained by environment or his own will)
will be reflected physically, chemically and biologically
into his cells of his body, and there the variation pressure
is building up (upon the gene through physical, chemical
and biological media with their languages) on that
variation direction and when chances (condition) appear
these variation may be expressed (realized) in the gene
structurally (in most cases it will happen when gene is
copying itself, in division or fusion). Disordered genetic
information in reproductive cells (such as sperms and
eggs) will cause disordered genetic information of the
following generations. But in more cases the genetic
information in the parents sperms and the eggs are
normal and the new life created may have some disorder.
Even sometimes the second generation looks normal but
the disorder may be expressed in the third generation.
This is because the disordering variation pressure in the
sperms and eggs (remember that not only the genes but
the whole cell inclusions are fused together when new life
is created) are passed on to (directly inherited by) the new

179

life (hence the variation pressure is inherited) and


expressed when the condition of expression is best (in the
turbulence of fusion and division of the reproductive cells
to create a new life). Here we can see that not only the
genes that will be inherited by a new life but also the cell
inclusions (cytoplasm which is the direct environment
of the gene) is inevitably inherited, hence the variation
pressure is inherited. This variation pressure may need a
couple of generations time to fade out if the environment
conditions which cause these pressures no longer exit
during these generations. Genetic structure do not have to
be changed immediately (in the first generation) to
disorder the biological information. Any disorder in the
environment will inevitably be reflected into our body and
relayed into every cell and build up a disordering
pressure. When genes are passed on to further
generations, the cell inclusions hence disordering
pressures also. And in due course and time these
disordering pressures may be expressed, structurally and
genetically. Once they are expressed structurally and
genetically, it is hard to change it or take it out.
In a rational sense, heredity is a phenomena caused
by a group of biological materials (not only genes) which
carry biological information. Hereditary materials can be
genes or non-genes. Its effects on hereditary information
can be direct or indirect. The chromosome and
chondriosome contain genetic information but the rest of
the cell inclusions also contain biological information
(which may be called indirect genetic information) that
can pass on to the new generations and they also can
cause changes in the information in the gene. Gene exits
in its direct environment the cell inclusions (plasma).

Gene is not something that controls everything (though it


has a high level of self-ordering function) but actually it is
quite manipulated by its direct environment which is a
more active factor, is the last level of the relay of
environmental information towards gene and also the first
level of the relay of genetic information (expression or
communication) towards the environment. In a general
sense, any thing can be deemed as an indirect information
media but in most cases its effect has to be relay to
(delivered to) the cells to exert its effects to the gene.
From here we can see the close and extensive relations
between genetic information and the environment.
Through multiple channels and levels of biological
structures, cells exchange materials and information with
the environment. The environment exerts continuous and
multi-aspects of influence on genes and genes also
respond for that. It can be deemed as a dialog between the
environment and genes. This dialog is multi-channelled
(physical, chemical, biological) and multi-levelled. Some
information inputs are through sensing organs but most
are not. What languages, what laws, what is going on on
molecular levels (or even finer levels) to carry out these
dialogs, what are mechanisms in it, these are complicated
things, probably among the top secrets of the nature. We
have to leave them for scientists to answer. One thing we
should mention is that: thinking information input into our
brains is playing more and more important rolls on
affecting our physical beings as we evolving on.
Biological information is a much wider concept than
genetic information. Genetic information is stored in
genes (expressed by genetic structure), but biological

(through the biological information) to indirectly act on
genetic information. And this direct environment of gene

on to the generations to come (and the biological
information stored in it as well).

paste a piece of gene there, virus engineer on other life
forms gene when they are making a living, high energy
radiation acts on the gene chain etc. Fortunately the nature
itself has multiple levels of functions to filter out, readjust or covering of the disordering.
Considering biological information is formed by
nature with its full speed of ordering (ordering happens in
the nature follows the principle of efficiency) in billions
of geological years with the energy dissipation of multiple
levels of thermodynamic supporting systems and
regulated this energy into every physical movement and
chemical reaction of this whole process in every level, in
a thermodynamic sociobiologial point of view, there is
tremendous amount of energy condensed in biological
structure and biological information. Therefore, if
anything wrong with it, the consequences are a quiet but
very costly one.
Of cause, genetic study can not be stopped (as it is
locked in game relations) and should not be stopped (as
scientific study is part of the ordering processes of matter

matter will infinitely approach the absolute truth but will
never reach it.
The ordering of matter is not caused and directed
by a first information or say an initial instruction from
outside this world (just like the movement of the matter
existence is not caused by a first push). The ordering of
matter is caused and directed by the effects of the
common actions of all the laws of nature (it is selfcausing). Actually, the ordering of matter itself is a law of

(in the nature, there is no movement that is really
random). It just moves according to its own laws of mode
of motion.
The fundamental reason for the ordering of matter
is not on natural selection but on the ordering nature of
matter existence itself. Anything, including the so called
chaos itself, is in the everlasting ordering processes. We

movement of anything that is matter. And there is order in
every level of structures of matter (elementary particles,
atoms, molecules, polymers, lives, ecosystems,
thermodynamic supporting systems of different levels).
And there is order throughout all the processes of
movement of matter. Just before a cosmic bang, there are
hundreds of millions of degrees of temperature and
enormous pressure. The last level of structure of mass

ordered energy. Just after the bang, there is a really big
explosion (not expansion of space). It seems like a total
chaos. But it is this very moment that initiated, actually
decided the extremely complicated ordering of this group
of mass.
The fundamental reason (or say driving force) for
the ordering of matter is in the very essential properties of
matter itself, is in the laws of nature itself.
The elementary particles are a level of the
structures of matter. There is no reason for them not to
observe the fundamental laws of matter --- the

other one should too. And vice versa.
Objectiveness is the very essence of science. To
practice objectiveness we need a fundamental, absolute,

Question: the first prototype life and its biological
information, which one comes first?
Answer: Let us briefly answer this question first,
then give more explanation later. The first prototype life
and its biological information come into being at the same
time. The thinking information which reflecting the
condition, process and structure of the forming of this first
prototype life come much later (when intelligent life
appear and becoming civilized).
To answer this question, we have to explain the
term biological information. First, biological
information is a wider concept than genetic information.
Here, to simplify the question, we just take them the
same. Secondly, we have to point out that (for us laymen)
we usually use the word biological information when
we talk about the information we mapped out from the
structure of the organism and recorded in artificial
thinking information carriers. Which is actually a piece of
thinking information which reflecting the structure of this
organism. While the real biological information is created
and stored at the corresponding structure of this organism.
It is basically a wired logic. This biological information is
created at the same moment the corresponding structure
of this organism is created. And they (biological
information and biological structure) exist together. They
can not be separated for a single moment. In the nature,

with is done so with its corresponding structure as carrier.
Think the case of a piece of wired logic circuit. When the
circuit is built, the logic is in it. When the circuit is
broken, the logic is gone. You can not take this piece of
wired logic out of its circuit as a wired logic. Because if
you do (e.g. write it down into a program), it is not a
wired logic any more, it becomes a piece of programmed
logic. Though they will still reflect the same information
contents, they have become information of different
nature and different form. The biological information
that can be taken out of an organism is actually a piece of
thinking information that reflecting the condition, process
and structure of the forming of this life.
When we make up something, we first have to
order a piece of thinking information into a program (or
say a plan), and then we make this thing according to this
program. While nature do not do things according to plans
or information. It does things only according to its own
laws and moves strictly according to its intrinsic order of
movements even in the seemingly total chaos. Selforganizing is one of the most important properties of the
ordering nature of matter. And this property shows at
every level of structure of matter (whether it is an
elementary particle, a life, a galaxy or universe).
The creator of the first life is its environment; the
creators of life today are the parents. But any life, when it
is created, its biological structure and biological
information come into being at the same time (note:
asexual reproduction does not create new life, it just
produce copies). This will always be true even in the

194

future when a new life can be created artificially. The


only difference is that the artificially created lifes
program (or say plan, blueprint) come into being before
this life is created. For environment created life (the first
prototype life) and parents created life, there is no such
thing as a program (or plan, blueprint) and they do not
need it. They are children of the nature. Nature does
things by neither plan nor dicing. It does things only by
the laws of its own. For the nature, there is no plan but
there is nothing really random.
Every new life is a creation. We are not simply a
half-and-half mixture of our parents. When the genetic
materials and cell inclusions fused together, a new
structure is created with its corresponding biological
information stored in it. Though it is not much a creation
(most structure and its biological information are
inherited from parents, from the first animal, from the
first life on Earth) but it still is. From this meaning,
however, we and the first life are all creations of nature.
Did this first life inherit some ordering
achievements to facilitate its own creation? Yes. Like us,
who inherited most of the ordering achievements from
parents, this first life inherited most of the ordering
achievements from the environment which at that time,
had already evolved into a highly ordered self-organizing
dissipative structure. And it in turn had inherited most of
its ordering achievements from its own environment and
so on The final assembly work compared to the

is not an ordinary dissipative structure; its ordering has
reached to a new level --- life suitable, let us call it proecosystem. By the self-organizing function of the proecosystem, the energy flux and material flux are
circulating in this system; material structures are
complicating under the laws of nature. The properties of
the elements, the matter of different structural levels (e.g.
elementary particles, atoms, inorganic molecules, organic
molecules, polymers) are just suitable of ordering that
you cannot help think that ordering is not coincidence but
the inherent natures of nature itself. Piece by piece, block
by block, the ordering level was accumulating. Because
the ordered structures are just happen to be more stable
than the not ordered ones, the way the molecules
chemically connected to each other are just happen to be
the way further ordering is needed. The moment finally
came. All the needed blocks were ready: small or big,
simple or complicated (some may be quite complicated
blocks). Under the participating of the energy flux (which
is organized by the system), bit by bit the blocks were
physically and chemically installed into the right position.
It just happens that the right connection is the easiest way
and it is quite stable once installed there. Why matter
behaves that way? We can just say that it is the intrinsic
nature of matter, the common action of all the laws of

ordering. Or say, The laws of nature favours ordering.
There is order in every level of structure of matter and
there is order throughout all the processes of movement of
matter. So when ordered structures put together by
ordering movement of matter, what can you expect? Of
course, nothing but order; and in higher level. Efficiency
principle works wonder in the evolution of matter.
When the Earth evolved into a pro-ecosystem, it is
a physically and chemically functioned dissipative
structure. It began to work on its own products when the
ordering (complicating) process going on. When the
ordering level of the complication of some products
reached a certain level, they became physically and
chemically functioned open systems of dissipative
structure themselves. And one of these subsystems of the
pro-ecosystem was to become the first life.
At first, the assembling was basically a chemically
and physically functioned selforganizing dissipative
structure. Slowly, when the assembling reached a certain
level of ordering, it began to turn into a biologically
functioned [a biological structure is a chemical structure
that reached a certain ordering level (or say certain level
of complexity) --- life threshold] selforganizing
dissipative structure. At this stage, though this organism is
still far from completing its minimum structure for
metabolism and reproduction, it had already shown a
tremendous ability of self-organizing, had already shown
a primitive way of metabolism and self-construction. [In a
rational sense, a dissipative structure already possessed
all the essential functions of life: energy, materials and

(metabolism). selforganizing (self-construction, selfbalancing, self-repairetc.). produce subsystems
(reproduction).but in lower level of ordering.] It had
begun to be a semi-independent organic organization
which can choose, take, discard and use whatever it needs
to build itself (exchange energy and materials with the
environment, make its own energy and materials
circulations in its own system and make itself more and
more complicated and more and more efficient). What
distinguish a biologically functioned selforganizing
dissipative structure from chemically and physically
functioned ones is the formers high level of initiative
mode of self-organizing ordering. From then on, its
ordering efficiency was greatly enhanced. With this an
ever-increasing evolution rate, it finally equipped itself
with a minimum system structure for metabolism and
reproduction. Now, it became a true, and the first life on
Earth. (Refer to p.17-18, 23, 87-88, and 90-95)
Basically, a biological organization is just a
chemically functioned, highly complicated, self
organizing dissipative structure. When its ordering level
reached a certain stage (life threshold), we began to call it
life, which shows some different characteristic properties
and functions than non-living matter.
If we retrieve the formation of the first life step by
step, we will find that for every single movement of every
single atom, every molecule, every block of polymer,
every reaction, there are countless of reasons to behave
that way and not other ways, and there are countless of
laws of nature govern everything in action.

The fundamental reason and driving force for the


evolution (or say ordering) of matter is the very properties
and laws of matter itself. Think of it, before the first life
was created, a tremendous amount of ordering work had
been done physically and chemically. And when
assembling began, in the first stage, ordering is also
completely done physically and chemically. It is not until
the later stage, that the chemical blocks are organized into
such an ordering level (or say such a complication) that it
began to show an extraordinary ability of self-organizing.
This structure we call it biological structure. The
biological structure starts to show initiative and selfreliance to build itself and cooperate the mother
dissipative structure (for the first life, it is the proecosystem) to hasten the ordering process. And just at the
final stage, biological structure start to gain the ability to
take over the ordering work and function as a biological
organism (or say biological organization). We can see that
the non-living matter can be self-organized to such level
that it is nearly alive. And living matter is organized out
by them after all.
Between the system that created the first life and
the first life itself, there is really just a blur borderline.
This fist life is just one ring of the continuous ordering
processes of matter itself.
Let us see the processes again: A Big Bang unit --one of the countless cells of the universe, in the middle of
its one cycle of its endless of cycles of its self-causing,
self-inducing mass-energy transformation movement,
created thermodynamic supporting systems. Which in

open system --- pro-life dissipative structure (or call it
pro-ecosystem). Which in turn created the first life.
Which evolved into a life system (bio-system), which
include microbes, plants and animals. And later on, a
branch of animal evolved into apes, then a branch of apes
evolved into human. In the future, we may evolve into a
super life form.
When we discuss to this moment, we can find
there is a common problem which confused us in both
physics and biology.
In physics, it is the first push of movement, the
start, end and border of the universe.
In biology, it is the first life, first biological
information.
Basically, all these questions can be answered by
two of the fundamental laws of nature: The law of
conservation of matter and the law of evolution of matter.
The ordering of matter is the intrinsic, essential
nature of matter. Different structural levels of matter have
their corresponding levels of ordering (or say selforganizing).
Elements put together (elements organized
together in an ordered way); it will form a different
structural level of matter; it becomes a different
organization and has different characteristic properties
which shows that it is a different entity. Life is just one

ring in this long chain of different levels of selforganizing structure of matter.


In short, the first life is a biologically functioned
dissipative structure, which is evolved from a physically
and chemically functioned dissipative structure.
Why matter tend to dissipate out its energy?
Becauseenergydissipation result in this matter forms more
stable structure and to be in a more stable state; while to be in
a more stable structure and in a more stable state is the
natural tendency of matter existence. Why matter in the
processes of energydissipation form suchstructure but not any
other kind of structure? Because in that conditions the
forming and existence of such kind of structure conforms the
principle of energy efficiency. Why the structure that
conforms the principle of energy efficiency also happen to be
the ordered structure? Because order is the expressing form
of efficiency; while efficiency is the effects of order.
Beauty is the manifestation of order; beauty is

Since information must be carried and transmitted

more spots in space at the same moment, so we know now
that instant answering is impossible. This will mean there
is a space isolation effects exist. But when we think about
it, it really makes sense. If there is not such a space
isolation effects, infinite information will exist
simultaneously in whole space, which means infinite
interference, which means no information at all, which
means matter can not evolve at all.

What the history presents us is not a picture of

many species; then one species wiped otherspecies out.
This one species start to branching out into many species
again, and then one species wiped otherspecies out
again this pattern repeated again and again. Let us call
it branching pattern. It is a natural phenomenon which
happens to all lives but it happened on human (and
prehuman) the most intensive and extreme way. Most
lives branch out as many subspecies as possible and tend
to keep it that way. It is kind of insurance policy for their
survival. We know fluctuation in a system can rationalise
and optimise system structure and functions; but the
branching pattern for human evolution is the most
intensive and extreme we can find in our life system.

From the unique high amplitude periodical oscillating


fluctuation branching pattern, we can see that this pattern
is not designed for survival but for evolution speed
(because evolution efficiency will decide human survival
after all); not for quantity but for quality. Nature designed
different evolution strategy for human than other lives in
this life system. For other lives it is safe in number, safe
in diversity; for human it is safe in evolution speed, safe
in quality. This is decided by human position and
functional role in the life system. Our survival (actually
the survival of the whole life system) depends on human
ability to pass through higher levels of natural selection
thresholds. We can realize that we reached such level of
evolution not by chance or luck; our ancestors sacrificed
for it. The nature arranged our high evolution speed by
trading off almost all the restspecies ofhuman (and
prehuman). But in a biological point of view, it is not the
way nature arranged them to die out but to live on. The
fittest species have already covered all the important
biological information; the few different information
between the branchingspecies are by different adaptation
and on the latest position on the biological structure, so is
insignificant, especially when the fittest species have
already got the best adaptation. Nature do not make
mistake.

Why we bother to set up non immigration zone?

Seeking Answers

First, some groups of people have higher


reproduction rate. Population pressure will force them to
spread out to lower population density area and richer
area. And they will over populate the locals by time
anyway. Because of one head one vote system, they will
take over politically and socially and finally
economically. And under present social conditions, this
process seems unstoppable. This has caused concern and
tension in the locals especially in the traditionally non
immigration area such as European countries.
Second, mixing is a stable strategy. It has an
intrinsically offensive and permeating nature. While
purifying is an unstable strategy. It has an intrinsically
defensive and shrinking nature. Without protective
measures of some kind [for instance, physical (geological
isolation), social (laws), mental (opinions)], by time,
purifying strategy will spontaneously failto mixing
strategy; and bring along with it the individuals, racial
groups (and their genes) which employ this strategy. And
that is exactly the social environment conditions provided
by now. So, under this social environment conditions if
we do nothing, it means we are doing something --forced mixing (which violated the principles of humanity,
democracy, justice and efficiency). We say forced mixing
because under presentsocial environment conditions a
total mixing is just a logical result of a spontaneous
processes. And it has nothing to do with peoples will. A
biologists prediction has its scientific reason.
Third, mixing is an irreversible processes while
purifying isa reversible processes. According to risk

plan to make the lag behind catch up. We are intelligent
enough and caring enough to reject racial communism --total mixing (Which is contradictory to efficiency

undignified racial discrimination, but we do not simply
deny differences to try to achieve harmony, because that

RISK MANAGEMENT
PRINCIPLES
Another reason we would rather do things the hard
way than the easy way is that we prefer stand on the safe
ground rather than the risky ground.
The characters of safe mode actions (risk
management principles): 1. The processes is reversible,
which means when it is proved to be wrong, you always
can turn back to do it the other way. 2. Usually the
processes need energy and information input and have to
be the right input (cost money, cost human efforts, have to
use brain hard. So it is usually the hard way). 3. It usually
is a long sighted, planned, organised action which have
weighed between the long term interests over the short
term interests; usually it sacrifice an affordable amount of
short term interests to exchange/invest on long term
interests. 4. Have final goal awareness rather than no
awareness of final destination. 5. Aware of the relations
between present activities and final destination. 6. It
usually is the balanced way and systematic way. When
pursue freedom, always balance the control and power
with obligation and duty. When pursue interests, always
weigh society over individual (the system is more
important than its subsystem). 7. The result of the
processes usually is predictable and is a benign one.
The characters of unsafe mode actions: it is the
opposite of the above. 1. The processes is irreversible,
which means when it is proved to be wrong, you can not

222

turn back to do it the other way. There is no way to rescue


it. 2. No need to do any thing. So it is usually the easy
way. 3. It usually is a short sighted, unplanned,
disorganised action which only concerns the short term
interests; have no idea of a long term interests or just
neglect it. 4. Have no final goal awareness; have no idea
of final destination. 5. No awareness of the relations
between present activities and final destination. 6. It
usually is the unbalanced way and unsystematic way.
When pursue freedom, only concern control and power
but neglect obligation and duty. When pursue interests,
only concern himself, his family, his interests group,
neglect society, environment, and further generations. 7.
The result of the processes usually is unpredictable and is
a malignant one.
So, you can group out the things which are on the
safe mode and which on the unsafe mode. Let us see:
Safemode actions: Environment protection,
controlled and long term planned use of natural resources,
controlled and planned human reproduction, protect rights
of both purifying group and mixing group and
compromise and harmonise their interests with branching
principle. Ban the exploitation of geothermal energy.
And leave the thermodynamic processes inside the Earth
undisturbed. Every year we use geothermal energy may
mean we robbed future generations thousands of years of
their time. The thermodynamic processes inside the Earth
are driven by nuclear fission reaction. The fuel is limited
and the heat is precious; it has to be last long enough for
our descendants to be developed to the level that they can
survive the odds. The Earth is covered with a crust not

keep the surface of the Earth uneven, etc.). (Your home

Unsafe mode actions: (your home work).
There is no reversible processes in the nature is
the general meaning. It takes in all the factors. It describes
the reality strictly. It is an absolute statement. The general
meaning is usually used in science philosophy.
Reversible processes is the special meaning. It is
talking about the characters of the processes itself and to
simplify the discussion we isolate the processes from its
time factor and its connections with its environment.
Disregards the time arrow and the environment of the
processes to concentrate on the characters of the processes
itself. It is a relative statement. The special meaning is
usually used in natural and social sciences, technology,

THE EQUATION OF FREEDOM


We do not want to blame the individuals, social
groups, they are just doing what they can and have to do
to maximise their own interests under existing social
environment conditions. Every one know the result of the
coincident of these actions (under present
social
environment conditions) but they just have to keep doing
it and that in turn will prepare them for a better position in
the disaster to come. You do not do it, others will do it
and that will put you in a disadvantaged competition
position. They are in a game relations which is dictated by
the rules (social environment conditions). Again, whos
fault? Political parties, especially the government. It is
them who are in the ruling position and have the power to
make rules for the game of survival which every one has
to play within.Though in a democratic country all people
have to bear a part of their own responsibility. It is the
people who voted for the government after all (if you say
what can we do? We do not have a choice. They are all
the same. Then why you do not practice your democratic
rights and start a new party which will be different or join
a party which is different).
Why the present world are getting more trouble
and we have to do some control we had never done
before? Because we are getting out of the naturally
balanced natural state. Natural selection mechanism is
more and more not at work in our society when we
getting more and more control and power over nature. We
made a man made system, in this system nature is not in
full control (though it is still at control at a higher level

with malignant solutions). We have to input our efforts to


make it work and maintained and developed (man made
system need human efforts to input energy and
information to keep system in order). While we get more
and more control we have to input more and more efforts
to keep in a balanced order. For instance, when we get
more control of diseases, produce more food, get better
living conditions, more peaceful and safe social
conditions, population will explode and we have to find
way to control it (ourselves) too (we depend on nature to
control it before) otherwise nature will release its
malignant solution at a higher level. No input or wrong
input will make the system disorder, deficient, decay,
even collapse. The higher the degree of human control the
higher the degree of human efforts input. While society
should provide individuals security and benefits;
individuals also have the obligation to look after the
society by sacrifice and self-restraint. Otherwise this
social system will not be sustainable. When we are using
more land to produce food we have to look after the
environment. When we have developed such power to
exploit natural resources we have to think our further
generations and plan their survival. When we defeated
Nazi and prevented genocide, we have to pay attention to
the rights of purifying groups. Also we have to show
wisdom and great love to cut the chain of hatred at our
generation. When you are in control of the situation you
take over the obligation to make the system balanced and
in order. If you do not, you are negating your own rights
and power along with your victory. For instance, claim
compensations on the second and third generation on the
defeated nation may not seem too mercy and wise,

The time of care nothing but eat and breed has
past, probably for ever. It is an irreversible processes that
we are getting more control, more power and along with it
more obligation, more duty of care. Wherever our
controlandpower goes, our obligation and duty will have
to follow like a shadow. Its just like the old English
saying: there is no such thing as a free lunch. It sounds
like a clich but it is not.
This is the equation of freedom: freedom safety
index = control and power / obligation and duty.
The numerator is what you get; the denominator is
what you have to pay out for that.
Freedom safety index: FSI
Control and power: CP
Obligation and duty: OD
FSI= CP /OD
When FSI = 1, this is ideal state. But it is a

somewhere within the system to maintain
output. The system is burning itself to perform
crucial task. This is a state physically
unsustainable. But this has never been a big
problem because people will automatically
correct this problem themselves by cut down
or totally shut down output. But this will not
give the society the efficiency it should have.
Though +CP, OD and CP > OD are the two main
cases cause the problems, all the above five cases need
human efforts to be rectified. Before every thing is

so much control from the nature and our society has
become a highly man made system which nature have no

TALK ABOUT HUMAN LONG TERM


SURVIVAL
We know that short term progress (in material
productivity, science, technology and culture) can not
solve long term and final human survival issue. Social
progress is controlled by thermodynamic processes which
have its own time table and is determined by its own
pendulum. So we only have to survive into the future
generation by generation to make it possible to happen.
Though this will be achieved by thinking information
(science, technology, philosophy, etc.) evolution but this
process can not going on without material base support.
That is why we want a long term planned steady and
sustained material productivity, we should a little look
light on material life and not encouraging unnecessary
over consumption of materials and energy. Low
consumption of materials and energy, low or no damaging
on environment; controlled reproduction of human
population, high yield on thinking information production
that is the pattern to be encouraged. It conforms the
efficiency principle which is the most fundamental
principle in the universe. It is dangerous and wrong for
any one to claim or give unrealistic hope that by short
term scientific and technological progress or by any other
way (such as superstitious activities), he can solve our
final survival issue. The only thing we can absolutely sure
is that as long as the chain of life continues and we keep
thinking, the possibility is open.

There are only two forms of structure levels that

holographic principle to theBig Bang units level we can
speculate that the live cycle of the Big Bang units are also
sine waves of the same shape pattern but very different

quantities. Since as an open system the live cycle of the
Big Bang units have to release its effective information
and we speculate that theeffective information on the
level ofthe live cycle of the Big Bang units can only be
eternal life with mass-energy transformation ability
{regardless the mass-energy transformation is performed
artificially [with science and technology (such as
teleport)]} or naturally (by evolve to that level). Because
the purpose of the live cycle of the Big Bang units is to
produce the effective information and this effective
information

possess
mass-energy

Bang units is to be dissipated out for the production of
this effective information, we speculate that the
oscillating period ofthis effective information should be
the same as theBig Bang units. That is: the time from
energy evolves into life should be equal to the time from
life evolve into energy form of existence.
There are only two fundamental and essential
thresholds in the universe. That is the two transformation
moments for the life cycle of the cells of the universe --Big Bang and Big Collapse. Correspondingly there are

us if we do not fall back again and again. Because the

evolution time but jump level to transcend evolutiontime
table is impossible. There is a time table designed by
nature and there is an evolution rate regulated by nature;
and these two things seem just fit quite tight (that is also
designed by nature). We only have the freedom to follow
the laws of the nature. We can wantonly set ourselves
loose for a period of time but that will cost us the chance
to survive into the far future. Basically, survival is very
difficult but extinction is extremely easy. You can not eat

RED SHIFT --- SPACE DILATION OR


ENERGY DISSIPATION
Hubblefound the phenomenon of red shift in space
--- when the electromagnetic wave travelled a long way to
us (the observer) its frequency shifted to the red end a bit.
There are only two possible reasons for this phenomenon:
this red shifted object is moving away from the observer
or the light beam reflected from the object into the
observers eyes had lost some of its own energy through
the long long way of travel in space. It is speculated that
the red shift is caused by space dilation. What caused the
dilation? Maybe dark energy? What is dark energy?
Things are getting complicated. Let us use the principle
that all conditions equal, the simplest way is the right way
or use the principle that beauty is order and order caused
beauty or use the principle that non-matter do not change
or use the second law of thermodynamics to temporarily
suspend this end and start to probe another possibility:
when electromagnetic wave travel in space its energy get
dissipated out in some way and that caused its frequency
reduced though its speed remain the same. Considering
the innate attribute of energy is dissipation, this if not
certain at least is very possible. The second law of
thermodynamics had told us about this. The second law of
thermodynamics applies in normal conditions without
have to attach conditions and in space normal conditions
form the continuous back ground in which the light
travel.As for how exactly the energy is been dissipated
out and where it gone, that is a knowledge intensive job
and have to leave to the scientists to answer.

The further away the object the energy will be lost


more when the light travel from there to earth to meet the
observers eyes and that is coincident with the observation
that the farther away the more it is red shifted. If scientists

when travel through space, then the conclusion can be
drawn. It will be a simple, harmonised and elegant
solution.
Have to mention, all conditions equal, the
simplest way is the right way --- this is right when apply
to the natures domain. When in the humans domain, it
should be the opposite --- all conditions equal, the hardest,
most pains taking way is often the right way. This is
because:natural systems are ruled by natural laws and
managed by natural order. It is perfectly balanced and in
harmony. In natures domain when natural processes
going on, efficiency principle will order things out while
the processes is powered by energy dissipation (in
concentrative structure it is powered by gravitation and
produce negative entropy). Any man made things,
including human society, manufactured products,
manmade processes, systems, all need human effort to
create and maintain. This is negative entropy driven
processes which nature cannot provide in normal
conditions. And in this processes efficiency principle still
apply but have to be in a human version. That is why it
will be so pains takingly demanding on our thinking
ability to work it out and carry it out. It is especially so,
when man made system developed into higher levels and

much more harm than good for human society and human

very soon while the human nature is the only thing that
can save us only after a long and hard struggle. Do the
easy thing is to let loose of nature in manmade system, let
natural processes which is entropy growing taking over

development into higher quality entity, and in this

GEOTHERMAL ENERGY --EARTHS LIFE SOURSE


After the exhausting of fossil energy people will

SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH


APPROACH
Social issues have to be studied with social
science research approaches. Human and human society
are matter. They obey the laws of matter.
Thermodynamics is a fundamental science and
Thermodynamic laws govern all matter movements,
including the development of human and human society.
The most profound, most fundamental cause that lead the
development of human society is hidden inside its
thermodynamic processes.
Before get deep into a question, should know
whether this question a valid. First, a philosophical brain
storm can be performed to check this and whether it is
possible and / or worthwhile to solve the problem andget
a rough direction. If pass this, give it a thermodynamic
evaluation / analysis to estimate whether it can be done
and findthe rough trend and develop a rough timetable
(development processes). It is necessary and worthwhile
to check it out at the height of the philosophy and
thermodynamics to decide the direction before get deep
into the details. When you get the direction and the big
picture, then you can use the applicational disciplines to
work it out layer by layer to concrete details. In most
applications, it may not necessary to get a concrete detail
but a qualitative result will be enough. In social science,

Seeking Answers

244

applicational disciplines also have ranking in importance.


The more fundamental the more the importance. Apply
the more important one first when it is relevant. For
example, thermodynamic social biology, social biology,
sociology, etc. it depends on what subject you study in
the case.
Analogue thinking methods also can be used to
approach result target or probing directions of
possibilities.
Use grey mathematics (fuzzy/vague mathematics)
and logic when it is needed while apply precision
mathematics when you can.
The reason grey methods are so popular in social
science study is efficiency. By using it 5% of effort can
achieve 95% result. In social science, most cases a
qualitative result will be enough.
This approach is an absolute methodology which
can be applied universally and unconditionally to both
natural scienceand social science researches.

1A check should be performed first. It is a
qualitatively decisive check.
Population is the only variable in the three key
factors that control the development if society: available
natural resources (resources), ability to reach and make
use of natural resources (productivity), and population.
Note: productivity is a variable but the moment it had hit
a hard wall --- the Earths natural resources and
environment limit. And over exploitation will cause
productivity drop, even collapse. In foreseeable future
human cannot reach and large scale use space resources.
So the fact that on Earth, the production of human
necessities had hit its limit and the only variables left is
population. Fundamentally speaking, raise productivity to
suit population growth is not a viable / sound way to solve
social problems in long term for the simple reason that
productivity and population grow in different dimensions
and productivity is limited by resources and population is
limited by productivity (of necessities). So the lag behind
effects and control mechanisms is this in natural processes:
resources --- productivity (of necessities) --- population.
Control population is to reverse this process and make it a
manmade
process:

Nearly all social engineering projects are negative
entropy driven processes (only some destructive plans not,
if any) and its implementation need a manmade social
environment condition --- global government. The reason
is: manmade processes are negative entropy driven. They

natural processes are positive entropy driven so they are
naturally stable and self-maintained processes. Put a
manmade processes into a competition social environment
with natural processes, it just cannot survive unless it
changes its manmade nature quickly to compete.
Manmade processes only thrive in manmade social
environment (manmade social system). That only can be
achieved by global government.
That is why at the moment environment cannotbe
protected effectively, population cannot be controlled,
poverty cannot be eliminated, armament race cannot be
checked, war cannot be avoided, and future cannot be
hoped.
Present world is still dominated by natural
principle --- natural selection. Its mechanisms are based
on competition. Competition will need to use any
difference to create discrimination and hatred to facilitate
the competition in any advantage to win it. Nature set the
conditions for selection: limited resources, over breeding,

betweenordered natural environment and ordered genes

The relationship between natural system and
manmade system is that: manmade system is a subsystem
evolved from natural system. It is a human society
evolved from natural principle directing into rational
principle directing. Though its internal ordering must not
use natural principle to direct but in the relationships with
the nature (natural system) it still have to strictly comply
with the laws of the nature. Manmade system as a
subsystem, still dependent and under the rule of its master
system ---the nature.The prerequisite of the physical
existence of a manmade system is that: The mode of
existence and scale of development of manmade system
must suit the supporting ability of the natural system. Its
long term existence must beestablished on the base of the
optimal relations with its natural supporting system.

concept to define a natural status. Equal is a humanity

Human rights: this concept can only be applied to
manmade system and it cannot be used to natural system
or the relationship between manmade system and natural
system. Inside manmade system individual rights and
freedom is restricted by the system itself (system capacity,

In manmade system, individual freedom can be


defined as this: individual freedom is to give full play of
ones subjective initiative under the condition that his
activity conforms with / not harm collective or other
individual rights and interests.
In the coming new age, the production of
information will be put to the top of social activities.
Freedom relating to information production (such as
freedom of speech, free access of information, freedom of
thinking) will be increased further. When a global society
has got rid of its competition social environment, freedom
of information will be a reality (control of information is a
necessity for winning competition, that is the reason it is
impossible at the moment). That will include both
thinking and biological information. That will be great
boost for efficiency in information evolution.
Though the concept of freedom cannot be used to

and manmade system but a concept --- degree of freedom,
can be used to describe the level of knowledge and
complying of the laws of nature and the functioning of

Degree of freedom is positively relevant to the discovery
and complying of natures laws, the level of social
development, level of human knowledge and intelligence

Degree of freedom is also defined by social

because we are still thing in itself in spite of our science
and technology.The biggest obstacle for human freedom
is the competition social environment (this environment is
set by nature: limited resources, over breeding, space
isolation to prevent us from reaching other life suitable
planet) and this social environment will naturally form
selection mechanisms (It is nothing wrong and worked
well for millions of years, until recently when population
and productivity hit the hard wall of resources and

are forced to do what they have to do (or what they have
not to do) to win competition to survive. But the what

human effort: it needs human input of energy, materials,

never make mistakes. Why not let nature do it for us? No,
because according to natures law all natural processes try
to bring disordering effects on manmade structure and
processes. So we are alone in the effort of maintain and
building our society. And on the other hand, nature is an
absolutely expert in maintain and building natural systems.
Often we want to lend a hand to help, but the nature
always show that it is not welcome. So the matter is quite
clear now: matters about human society, we do it
ourselves. There is no chance we can borrow a hand from
nature; while we keep our hands off natures matters and
let the nature do its own business. This way it will be
good for both sides.
So the conclusion: the invisible hand can work

(information is represented by the structure) is more

Poverty:ina natural system, poverty is a logical

population always tends to consume the last drop of
resources. Population is only limited by the survival
resources available for it. Population is like a boat floating
on the survival resources and the survival resources is like
the water which supporting the boat. The height of the
population always follows the height of the water. So
regardless of how much survival resources areput in or
taken out, the per capita survival resources available for
individual are always end up the same --- minimal
survival quantityandquality. Poverty is a constant and

There is a lag behind effects between available
survival resources and population growth (20 years per
generation). By increase productivity, the problem can be
temporarily relieved but it is not a fundamental solution.
In the last few centuries, human achievements are mainly
large scale increased development resources production
but survival resources increase rate are much lower.
Because the production of survival resources are limited
more strictly by natural conditions, not only its rate of
increase is low but also its growth rate has a negative
relations with its production input intensity (input
quantity per unit time per unit land or water) and
production time span. The more intense the input and
longer period the land and water been exploited, the lower
the productionincrease rate. Theincrease rate become
negative quickly and many places become useless (0
productivity). And that put more pressure on remaining
land and water body. It is a vicious cycle. Even this cycle
cannot last long --- the final limit is defined by nature:
natural resources dry out and the exhaustion of natures
ability to adjust, balance the pollution and disturbance.
While population grow naturally in much higher rate. And
exponential growth always has an exploding point --- the
fifth generation to give the deadly blow. The final restrain
on population growth is the available survival resources
and life suitable environmental conditions; and that is
what nature is doing.The fundamental productivity for
survival resources is nature and natures productivity is
the highest when it is balanced and in harmony with all

Racial discrimination: differentiation is based on

everyone is locked in the nasty game of free competition

Racial difference is a physical difference and it is an

HUMAN ARE FACING NATURES

A society, if its fundamental directing principle is

still a naturalsystem. Make no mistakes; we are still in a

we (including the author) are, fundamentally speaking,
still animals.
The society that under the direction of the
principle of free competition and natural selection, its
development processes always follows a pattern of
periodic oscillations. There are four quadrants in every
period: recover, develop, booming, collapse. Every life
follows this pattern, even bacteria. This is designed by
nature with two key factors: limited available natural
resources, overbreeding. And you just leave it alone it

natural system will lead to natural order and confirm to
efficiency principle) until now (when manmade structure
evolved to a certain level that natural principle will no
longer able to lead this system to order and no longer
confirm efficiency principle): human have become too
smart, too powerful and too sentimental to live like this.
Environment that supports us has been push to the edge,
resources facing dry out, the weapon we created can wipe
out all human, and our capacity of productivity can do
that too. There is an urgent need for change. The
questions are: where to go and how to get there. This
period had reached its end --- the collapse quadrant. 7
billion human, increase 100 million every year, 10 billion
is the collapsing point of ecosystem. There is 20 to 30
years left. Population - environment collapse happens in
an explosive way. To be honest, the author doesnt have
an idea which can solve this problem in a benign way. My
wits are at its end for this issue. What the author talks
about here is how to end this tragic periodic natural
selection pattern in human society and set up a new
sustainable, harmonic, perpetual development mode
which can lead human to a human way of life and to
eternal existence after this period. This book is meantto
tell the people if any left after this period: when you still
can, dont follow the old easy way of life which always
will lead to havoc and tragic ends, but open a new way to
become thing for itself and always let the light of
scientific and rational thinking lead your soul; and only so,
you can save yourself.

Natural selection still has its positive effects. But when


human society developed to high level (maybe 100 years
ago) human ability had becoming so powerful that nature
can no longer use the benign methods to re-adjust rebalancing itself.Its malignant methods are ready to apply
as a higher level selection mechanisms. Nature never
makes mistakes. According to efficiency principle, if
taking out human can save the more important effective
strength --- ecosystem, nature will do it.
This is a law of nature: human society will evolve
from a natural system into a manmade system when its
development reach to a certain level, and in a manmade
system natural processes cannot be allowed to run this
system and natural principles cannot be used as system
directing / operating principle. We are now in such
historical moment: sitting on the most important and grim
threshold of natural selection to be selected in or out.
Only a global government with a scientific and
rational directing principle can eliminate the competition
social environment and free human from the tyranny of
natural selection and open the way to a sustainable,
harmonic and perpetual future.
Actually, the old natural order are so strong, so
stable and so deeply bind up with power that the author
wonder what can break it to give way to a new fragile,
negative entropy driven manmade system except the most
powerful social big bang of the collapsing of the old
world. And such a brand new, unprecedented order, only
on the ashes and open space and time the new beginning

probably it is a historical necessity that things have to


happen this way but not other ways.
Though the new society can only be established on
the ashes of the old world but the theoretical and
organisational preparation have to start as early as
possible so that it can lead the processes and use every
opportunity the history give to guide the history to the
correct way. The old order will not automatically and
willingly give way to the new order. Leave it alone, it will
naturally re-start again at the new beginning and simply
recurrent another round of natural selection period like
what happened many times before,until the nature cuts the
cancer off its body.
The new society from establish to accomplish its
basic goals and reach stable state will need about 200 to
300 years. It is the greatest social engineering project in
human history and it will be epoch making.
Absolute laws of the nature rule on everything
without exception: including natural system and manmade
system. Law of evolution of matter is one of them. Under
scientific and rational principles, human and human
society will still evolve and evolve much faster and better.

GLOBAL GOVERNMENT
The idea of global government had a long history.
Many versions of this idea had been produced by different
theories and different people, most of them have noble
ideals and great goals. Inherited of their ideas and inspired
by their spirit, aided by modern natural and social
sciences and pressed by grim world reality, the author
reckon it is the time to offer his version of the design of
the great new world order --- global government, for
present and future people as a reference when needed.
Global government, as a historical necessity,
seems imminent, as the last quadrant of this period is
going to end in 20 to 30 years. At this greatest turning
point of human history, every human should do his duty
as an Earth citizen, so the author.
Anxiety is not without reason; leave the course of
history to the nature seems not an option the first time in
human history. Because nature had abandonedhuman
when human society had reached mature age and still try
to depend on natures care for our own internal affairs. It
is natures will, actually it is its law that human being
have to direct their society with their own wits and efforts
at this development stage, or else.

The purpose of global government is to change


natures setting: free competition and natural selection.
And set a new set of directing principles with scientific
and rational thinking. To achieve this, first have to
eliminate the social environment conditions that cause
competition and natural selection --- human divided into
self-centred interest groups in the name of state and
compete each other in a world with limited resources and
ever increasing population.
No doubt, global government have to be a united,
central controlled, intellectual top down leading, scientific
and rational principle directing manmade system.
This is a manmade system, with manmade
structure and manmade processes all the way through
driven by negative entropy. You cannot depend on natural
processes to naturally grow it out from existing society,
because natural processes will necessarily lead to
competition and natural selection. You can see history; do
simulations; carry out experiments in the real world,
reasoning with logics, it will always derive out the same
result:competition and natural selection grow out from
natural processes. And this natural processes only effect
on disordering our manmade system --- global
government. There is no easy way; no invisible hand to
help us, only our own wits and efforts can help ourselves.

destructive effects on your efforts to build something
meaningful. To be thing for itself is hard, for the simple
reason that all natural tendencies (driven by energy
dissipation) are against your efforts to do something
positive and to build something meaningful (manmade
processes are negative entropy driven). Any time want to
go an easy way, will be trapped into the old free
competition and natural selection and locked there and
hard to get out.All natural structures and processes are
thermodynamically stable; but all manmade structures and
processes are thermodynamically unstable.This is a law of
the nature.
This is a highly centralised government with high
efficiency but if the top leader becoming corrupted or

easier to correct errs than whole country all power
position rascal dictatorship rule.In that case change of top
leader will be useless and the whole structure have to be
demolished to correct the errs. If by generations of

what can be done?

of how to determine the truth.The standards for verifying

still not been corrupted by those highly corrosive
circumstances and always hold firm their noble ideals and
great goals than those who claimed to serve the people
but after they got power do the opposite.
A sound system of civil servants should be
established to ensure high quality people in power

mobility of talent people and ensure it is a positive flow.
No term limit (to encourage long term behaviour and
allow experience mature) but system ensure unfit officials
can be replaced any time. The system is high quality top
down controlled so there is not much trick to play. Some
intellectuals / talents chosen by government may have to
do the duty for public as part time work in
governmentbeside their main job.
When global government established, the first and
most important job to do is set up a system for population
control. Population is the only effective variable in the
equation of natures setting: natural resources are limited
by natural conditions; productivity had hit the hard wall
of resources dry and environmental limitation. Now with
global central controlled government and non-competition
social environment, the conditions are right for this job.

population quantity, quality, unity, harmony, environment

The principles in the project must be laid out first:


efficiency principle is the directing principle which decide
the direction is correct; risk management principles make
sure the processes is safe to perform; branchingprinciple
is to ensure the correct methodology is applied for the
feasibility of this unprecedented social integration process.
And modern technology, system design, administrative
skills all have to play a role to make this process feasible,
operatable, humane, and acceptable. Social biology and
biology are concretised into detailed measures with
scientific designing.
Marriage, sex, and reproduction should be
separated, it is not necessary to bind them
together.Actually, maybe by time, marriage may become
obsolete. Every citizen by duty and obligation has to
deposit their genetic information to government agency

social security measure. This agency control human

the products are also rightfully public owned.

under the system. All have the same right to choose and

can refuse anyone while unidirectional valve will be
installed in the system and computerised to function to
achieve system efficiency and carry out branching
principle. Sex and reproduction is separated; individual
own his / her body but not the biological information. In
the case a child is lost; people always have the security of
the safely stored biological information to produce
another. Through this processes for a couple of hundred
years human will all be beautiful, intelligent and healthy
but this system still have to be applicable for new
mutations of abnormal abilities / talents to be developed,

reduce to 5 million.This quantity may keep for 5,000

Human have restrained on their own numberto harmonize

principles, goals. Lay out learning procedures, research
procedures, layers of information storage or access

as possible, arm it as much as possible, then let it work it
out. Simulating or practicing; while the programmer
improving, fine tuning the program. Give it standard
procedure for learning, researching, general decision
making and specialist systems but define that it must get
used to check it out independently and calculating out the
best way according the specific circumstances on the case.
Let it practice different layers of information exchange
and arrangements; establish communication between
sensors and action mechanisms; and output request for
improvements or for the advanced models (autonomous
robot) do the improvements or repairs themselves. Allow
self-improvement. Slowly it will work out its own
systems, strategies, even styles and work better, quicker
and can solve more and more complicated problems.

to their thinking ability and action ability and will damage
their trust for the programmer. It is always connected with
peers; always online, always observing, learning,

of its own sensors and various hardware executing
