In the past I've posted these links:


to the work of Arto Annila about the relation
between entropy and life (and hence intelligence).

Here is some recent work by Jeremy England:

Spontaneous fine-tuning to environment in
many-species chemical reaction networks
Jordan M. Horowitz and Jeremy L. England
PNAS 2017 114 (29) 7565-7570

Self-Organized Resonance during Search of a Diverse
Chemical Space
Tal Kachman, Jeremy A. Owen, and Jeremy L. England
Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, 038001 – Published 21 July 2017

Detailed analysis of how an external energy source
can drive chemical systems to non-equilibrium states.
