Chapter Summary

With the help of contemporary natural science and the hierarchical theory of time, this chapter explains the issue of the first internally coordinated shops of oscillators. Abiding by the mode of reasoning in natural science, it formulates its scenario in a manner uncommitted to any specific example. It sees biological clocks as not merely assisting life in its adaptive endeavors but comprising, making up living organisms. Employing this model, the chapter traces the origin of life to natural selection in the cyclic domain, working on molecular aggregates. Applying thermodynamic considerations to the model of biogenesis sketched, leads to the understanding that life is identically equivalent to a dynamic equilibrium between growth and decay, maintained through an instant by instant coordination among complements of biological clocks. The chapter outlines an understanding of life and its origin with the assistance of the hierarchical theory of time.

Keywords: biogenesis; biological clocks; contemporary natural science; coordinated clock shops; dynamic equilibrium; hierarchical theory of time
