2 Lecture Outline: “How genes build animals - the essential fundamentals and their implications” I. The reductionist pyramid and (chemical) organism. II. What kind of chemical system is an organism? – “complex vehicles built by design information for the “purpose ” of replicating that information III. Biological organisms (chemical vehicles) are “about” information IV. The “Second Law” and biological information V. What does the world look like to a chemical vehicle? – It’s “Malthusian” VI. Natural selection is inevitable for vehicles in a Malthusian world
