About Intelligent Design

Thermodynamics, the Science of Heat, became an important science in the 19th century when physicists started to improve the Steam-Machine. This blog is about a recently discovered law of Thermodynamics called the Constructal Law. The Constructal Law describes How Intelligent Systems emerge out of the Laws of Thermodynamics. According to Thermodynamics the evolution of the universe has been characterized by an on-going transformation from a simple, restricted, highly condensed, homogeneous state (the Big Bang) to an increasingly complex, widely dispersed, dynamic, multipotent, granular diversity. Energy always moves from High to Low Temperature. This is the main reason why most of … Continue reading About Intelligent Design

About Combining the Combinations

  “Evolution means the creation of larger and larger islands of order at the expense of even greater seas of disorder in the world. In the process of evolution, each succeeding species is more complex and thus better equipped as a transformer of available energy.: Jeremy Rifkin, Entropy: A New World View (1980). You wouldn’t enjoy a perfectly ordered universe. A wholly ordered universe would be at perfect equilibrium and would be dead. There can arise no Order unless there is a Flow of Matter and Energy which decreases in intensity as a system moves toward equilibrium. Motion, change or … Continue reading About Combining the Combinations

A City is an Organism

The System of Life is growing in size and in complexity, and so do the infrastructures sustaining it. In 2008 the point was reached where more than 50% of the world population lives in cities. That percentage is growing. By 2030, over 60% of the world’s population – nearly five billion people – will be living in urban area. The System of Life is generating Super Organisms and the City is one of them. Urbanization is only a relatively recent phenomenon. As far as we now know urbanization started in Mesopotamia around 4000 – 3500 BC. For the Ancient Mesopotamians, … Continue reading A City is an Organism

About the Law of KLeiber

A power law relates one variable to another raised to a constant power. The general form takes y = xa, where y and x are variables, and a is a constant exponent. A power law exhibits the property of scale invariance. When you multiply the Scale (x) with a factor b the function (y =  baxa) does not change its Shape. In 1817 Goethe wrote his book ”Zur Morphologie“. This book was the start of a new science called Morphology, the Science of the Shapes. In his book Goethe describes the so called Uhrplant, the Primal Plant, which is based on … Continue reading About the Law of KLeiber

Why Civilians are Not Computers

Montesquieu tried to balance the Power of the State. He defined three functions called the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary. He based this model on the British constitutional system, in which he perceived a separation of powers among the Monarch, Parliament, and the Courts of Law. In a Democracy the Parliament represents the People. It is chosen by an Election. Out of the Parliament the Executive Power is chosen by a Majority of the Votes. At this moment the Executive Power is not one Person, the King. The real executive power is the Bureacracy. Since the times of  Montesquieu the Real … Continue reading Why Civilians are Not Computers

About the Legal System

A friend of mine is a well known lawyer. He is writing a book about improving the Legal System. He is thinking out of the box. His main issue is efficiency. We can save much money and of course save a lot of trouble of innocent victims of the System when we use sound principles of management. I agree with everything he is writing. I don’t want to think out of the box I want to remove the box itself. Let’s have a try. Why do we need a law and people that are enforcing the law? Was there a … Continue reading About the Legal System
