When things cool down, assemble, and thus acquire more mass, probabilism decreases and the world becomes more deterministic. The unsuccessful strive for determinism rules the world of organism and biology (cf. Schrödinger, 1944/2010, p. 80), the physics of medium-size things. Some things can happen but most options are excluded. Creativity has filled certain niches in a particular and specialized way, needing a lot of maintenance work to keep it like that.

With respect to the evolution of species, Goswami (1997, p. 88) declares that variability takes place at the level of the genes, whereas selection into a stable feature takes place at the level of the organism.

This means that between moments in time, temperature differences exist, earlier being warmer than later. Yet, temperature wants to reach equilibrium. Conservation of energy states that where there is a difference between energy levels, the energy from the higher level will flow to the lower level. Formulated as the first law of thermodynamics, the convection of heat (Q) goes from the warmer to the colder object, which is why we can boil an egg. In other words, heat balance follows Black’s principle that Qup = Qdown: Within the boundaries of our universe, the amount of warming up equals the amount of cooling down.
