Generation of Life in the process of the Universe evolution

What is it about?

By assuming the simplese definition of life, that life is just an auto-reproducing molecular system (ARMS), we try to explain the origin of life, taking the final step of the Universe evolution.

Why is it important?

We found a few clues for the origin of life, such as: (1) As the Universe expands and gets extremely cold, biogenesis can take place by auto-reproducing molecular system (ARMS), new level of stabilization may be achievable only at ‘locally cold places’ (LCPs), such as comets. (2) There must be the parity breaking in the bioscale stabilization process, which can be violated spontaneously, or dynamically by the van der Waals forces possible only at LCPs. (3) The rule of bioparity breaking is universal within the biohorizon. So we will find, e.g. only left-handed amino acids in all living beings dwelling within our Galaxy. (4) The idea of biogenesis through the bioscale stabilization in the evolution of the Universe looks very consistent with Panspermia hypothesis and supports it by providing a viable answer for life’s origin at such LCPs.
