Does this 3rd Law of Thermodynamics change (every/no)thing?

    The phenomenon covered by the constructal law is natural organization, evolution and life: the occurrence and evolution of freely morphing configurations in every thing that flows and moves more easily over time…

    If physics was to account for the systems of nature completely, then thermodynamics had to be strengthened with an additional self-standing law—with another first principle— that covers all phenomena of design occurrence and evolution. To achieve this, the constructal law states briefly that “For a finite-size flow system to persist in time (to live), it must evolve in such a way that it provides easier access to the imposed (global) currents that flow through it”…

    The constructal law is the definition of life in the broadest possible sense: to be alive, a system must flow and be free to morph in time so that its currents flow more and more easily. “Live” are the water streams in the river basins and the streams of animal mass flowing on the landscape, which are better known as animal locomotion and migration. Live are the animate and the inanimate systems that flow, move, and change configuration to flow better. The constructal law commands that the changes in configuration must occur in a particular direction in time (toward designs that allow currents to flow more easily). The constructal law places the concepts of design and evolution and life centrally in physics…

-28°C (-19°F) here in northern BC. But I keep my window open because the apartment is too hot!

If it got much colder here in Vancouver consistently, I suspect Walmart and Capilano Mall would fix the doors so they work correctly. Or maybe it will take a lawsuit from a Walmart employee who contracts pneumonia because to the persistent cold and wet blowing in. Or the surviving family.

My latest ghee purchase from one of the local Persian groceries. Note, these folks call themselves ‘Persian’ not Iranian.

The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Made me smile. I dated a college student from Iran. he and all his friends called themselves Persians too. I found it quite exotic!
