Abstract The aim of numerous works of author is the creation of simplified thermodynamic model the origin of life, its evolution and the aging of living beings. During the creation of this model the author has used a variety of approximation and postulates. These approximations and postulates were justified from the standpoint of dynamic quasi-equilibrium […]
Hierarchical thermodynamics is the physical and chemical foundation of origin of life and biological evolution. Darwinism, of course, will be developed on the basis of general laws of nature, including the second law of thermodynamics and the principle of substance stability. Hierarchical thermodynamics explains many facts and contradictions in the theory of evolution.
Thermodynamics allows the formation of abiotic (prebiotical) molecules directly into the depths of earth and during underwater and terrestrial eruptions. The formation of HCN and other abiogenous molecules observed in electrical discharges, especially during the eruption of volcanoes. It was found that the synthesis of adenine and many other primary prebiotic molecules on a young and modern earth is beneficial from the standpoint of thermodynamics. As a result of actions of the structural stabilization and the principle of substance stability the purine and pyrimidine nucleobases can exist during relatively long time and be involved to the metabolism of living organisms. Some complex supramolecular structures – harbingers of life appear and in our time. However, these structures can be eaten by modern organisms, which prevent the formation of new forms of life.
We can find many examples of metabolic processes in heterogeneous spatially isolated molecular structures existing on the primary Earth and in the modern conditions. These processes are the prototype of metabolism in living organisms. Apparently, a simple compelling example is the exchange of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in the particles of minerals, for example in particles […]
