Let me back up here first…
From what we can tell, life on earth exploded not much longer after earth itself formed, relatively speaking (within the first billion years).
Life can be seen as some localized “reversal of entropy,” which is fine, if the laws of thermodynamics hold, and that eventually heat-death will prevail.
But taking our one data point, i.e. Earth, and extrapolating that life is possible and astronomically diverse, prolific, and complicated—perhaps even likely across the perceivable universe—this sort of order out of chaos is astounding to say the least.
All that said, is there a word, or are there principles that might uphold this observation?
Or, in other words, removing the possibility of life—the very idea—from what we know about the universe and its natural fundamentals, should it be surprising that life can spring forth from it or not?
