Life Reduced to Bad Physics

Those reductionists who try to reduce life to physics usually try to reduce it to primitive physics—not to good physics. Good physics is broad enough to contain life, to encompass life in its description since good physics allows a vast field of possible descriptions. There is no reason why living beings should be compared to primitive machines which don't make use of feedback.


Good physics is complex enough to account for life.
