Scientists propose 'missing' law for the evolution of everything in the universe

Very interesting. Compare to Charles Darwin 1882 letter and hope of a general law of nature to describe how non-living matter, evolves into life.

To Daniel Mackintosh 28 February 1882, "...With respect to the main purport of your note I hardly know what to say.— Though no evidence worth anything has as yet in my opinion been advanced in favour of a living being, being developed from inorganic matter, yet I cannot avoid believing the possibility of this will be proved some day in accordance with the law of continuity3 I remember the time above 50 years ago when it was said that no substance found in a living plant or animal could be produced without the aid of vital forces!4 As far as external form is concerned Eozoon shows how difficult it is to distinguish between organised & unorganised bodies—5 If it is ever found that life can originate on this world, the vital phenomena will come under some general law of nature— Whether the existence of a conscious God can be proved from the existence of the so-called laws of nature (i.e. fixed sequence of events) is a perplexing subject, on which I have often thought, but cannot see my way clearly— If you have not read W. Graham’s “Creed of Science” it would I think interest you, & he supports the view which you are inclined to uphold.—6"

"law of increasing functional information", does this law of nature now fit what Charles Darwin hoped for in 1882? Has this new law of science been tested like Newton's laws of motion or Kepler planetary laws for elliptical orbits or the law of gravity? IMO, seems quite a stretch here to present this as a law of science for abiogenesis or other interesting things in nature. Perhaps it is all summed up, *the law of stuff happens* :)
I think 'filter' is a much better term than 'selection'.
'Selection' infers (mental) intent.
'Filter' is a pure passive mechanical/logic operation.

Essentially what they describe seems synonymous with entropy.
Where some (earlier) permutations are considered more 'ordered'.
Probably compounding that with increasing granularity.
Time offering ever more choices.
If time started offering less & less choices that would be anti-entropic.
"law of increasing functional information"

Perhaps this *law of science* can show how life evolved on Ceres and when this life on Ceres evolved from non-living matter. After all, it is said to be a *law* now in science so testing like Newton's laws of motion as an example should be easy.

The "law of increasing functional information" says that complex systems in nature evolve to become more complex.

Let us consider a thought from someone who has no formal education and is not specialised in the work. Let us consider that in the beginning which is probably a loop of just energy that somewhere there began a form of attraction one to the other and energy became something larger with the same phenomenon again and again.
Eventually there was a group that united and produced the big bang as we called it. There was other energy there and we might call it dark matter. This dark energy provides the filler which keeps protond from being attracted and merging with the Neutron thus eliminating the atom. The same would hold true throughout what we know as reality which is different from actuality. These atoms form all things that we conceive in our universe. These protons swap from one neutrons to another constantly and both are in constant connection. When as we call it a black hole swallows a star or planet that group of atoms is broken up into their small protons and neutrons which in turn are broken up into the different parts that we have recently discovered and then spewed out the bottom as pure energy probably to be scattered into another dimension to again be assembled into another form of energy both animate and inanimate which we can not see or with our present equipment detect. It could be right next to us we would not know. Lets just give it a little thought before you write me off as another nut job.

It seems that complex systems do not evolve to become more complex. After all, black holes, or Planck holes, are rather simple as far as we know. Also, everything in our area is being drawn to The Great Attractor which will presumably destroy all the complex systems. With the expansion of the universe making it harder for complex systems to interact, it seems there will be a limit as well as the limit on proton decay where the universe will return to nothingness.
