Universal Darwinism: The path of knowledge     

Available from Amazon

Universal Darwinism is placed on a firm theoretical foundation derived from information theory.

It is argued that the existence of complex entities including quantum systems, biology, neural based behaviors and culture, depend on the exploitation of loopholes in the second law of thermodynamics. Exploiting these loopholes requires knowledge of the causes and opportunities in the system's environment.

Only through using this knowledge are systems able to reduce their own entropy through shifting an offsetting amount to their environments.

Mathematically knowledge is created through the process of Bayesian inference and I argue that Darwinian processes are a physical process capable of performing Bayesian inference.
