Abstract

The evolution of order in living systems and certain nonliving physical systems obeys a common fundamental principle, here called the Darwinian dynamic. Such ordered systems deviate greatly from the thermodynamic equiprobability rule. Specifically, the fitness of an RNA replicator (its per capita rate of increase) is shown to be a function of adaptive capacities which are intrinsic (in the sense that they are determined by the nucleotide sequence) and of the availability of resources.-from Authors
