  1. Evolutionary theory is normally taken to apply only to living things.


  2. And, why would energy efficiency guide what is ‘naturally’ selected? Was the moon selected to orbit the earth, or the oort cloud selected in some natural manner related to life ?


  3. ..or i mean the relarionship of development that thus then would link life and nonlife?


  4. I was undergraduate educated in evilutionary thoery, but i was thinking about it again with your posts.

    What do you think and or do you know: is ev thoery only concering life, and life in this planet? Does its principles. Or can they be extended to explain and include non living things, like planets and supernovas, as well life and non life?
