Request Anthere look at this one, as she is more up on theoretical biology...
Proposed changes from an ignoramus[change source]
I’m wondering about a change from:
“It is a temporary condition in which certain things are hotter and more highly organised than the surrounding space.”
“It is a temporary condition in which certain things are becoming hotter and more highly organised than the surrounding space.”
Also, what about changing: “This is the second law of thermodynamics:“ to: “This does not change or contradict the second law of thermodynamics:“
I’m not sure such changes would be valid or acceptable. But on the outside chance that they were, it might be nice to address HOW such a temporary/localized reversal would come about even if it were to acknowledge that there is no definitive answer to such a question.
Another way to look at it (or another way increase/decrease) confusion.[change source]
If an increase in the amount of energy of a system tends to increase that system’s entropy, would negentropy be a temporary (or localized) exception to that generalization?
