Biocosmology: Part II

Chris King


Twenty years ago (King 1978) I proposed the biocosmological thesis that the form of life's origin and evolution is a cosmological interactive process defined in the cosmic symmetry-breaking at the origin of the universe. With the passage of time, the pendulum has shifted from the improbability of life as a random molecular accident to an awareness that central biomolecules may be cosmologically abundant products of the clouds forming young stars leading to an RNA-era in which both catalysis and replication emerged from one cosmologically dervied molecule RNA. . This paper unveils the non-linear quantum foundations of biocosmology as the founding science of life. Part I of this paper covers the following topics: 12. Evolution as a Quantum Process at the Edge of Chaos; 13. 13. Consummating Cosmology: The Emergence of Sentient Consciousness; and 14. The Cosmology of Life’s Diversity.
