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 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

About Morphology or How Alan Turing Made the Dream of Goethe Come True

The Ancient Greeks believed that the images of waking life and dreams came from the same source, Morpheus (Μορφέας, Μορφεύς), “He who Shapes“. The Science of the Shapes, Morphology, was created and named by Goethe in his botanical writings (“Zur Morphologie“, 1817). Goethe used comparative anatomical methods, to discover a primal plant form that would contain all the others-the Urpflanze. Goethe being a Romantic Idealist hoped that Morphology would Unify Science and Art. “The Primal Plant is going to be the strangest creature in the world, which Nature herself shall envy me. With this model and the key to it, … Continue reading About Morphology or How Alan Turing Made the Dream of Goethe Come True
