I like cutting and pasting-much like my photochop pics that I just lasso crap and paste stuff on. Technology seeks too much order-everything all lines up-it just isn't natural. There is no life in it. It's to easy to snap it on a grid-it takes "the work" out of it.
What's the difference of shining a light on the carbon in a diamond and all the carbons in our organic molecules of life? Both form ordered structures. Both will take the energy of the sun and dissipate it as heat. The diamond is formed by natural processes-pressure, heat, and time and it reaches the lowest entropy state being a solid. Life exist in an aqueous environment and that carbon's structure allows it form unique bonds and form millions of compound in aqueous solution. It took time to make either. Systems want to find lowest entropy state. The organic molecules in life are transitory-so built and decay. The "order" is because the system is finding it's lowest entropy state in both instances. In organic molecules their structure allows them to take the energy , and to do "the work" to build the transient order, and dissipate heat with greater efficiency (in a step-wise processes of metabolism) to reach it's lowest entropy state. But one system does work the other doesn't it just dissipates the heat. The diamond is way more ordered a structure with lowest entropy but there is no life in it. Life is not nearly so ordered. The moral of my "tail" is don't be a diamond in the rough and enjoy the chaos-it's what makes life. ROFL.
