The role of catalysis in evolution

During the evolution took a long time to create, for example, humans. It was necessary to create new and new catalytic systems. But these catalytic systems already exist in the ontogeny. As a result, the ontogenetic life proceeds and ends fast.

The role of catalysis in evolution is increased. The thermodynamics itself finds new catalysts that speed up evolution. These catalysts promote rapid reversion thermodynamically unstable substances of metabolism into more stable compounds and contribute to the formation of optimal supramolecular structures.


Hierarchical thermodynamics improves catalytic systems in the process of evolution. Apparently, supramolecular thermodynamics and the principle of substance stability created nanobes - tiny filamental structures. Nanobes are harbingers of life, or forms of life itself. Nanobes, like viruses and bacteria, can be formed in our time not only by biological way but also by the anabiotic way. They can be transformed relatively quickly, but cannot be evolved during the long evolution because higher life forms do not let them do it. Apparently young nanobes successfully evolved on the surface of minerals such as apatite. The possible transformation of nanobes associated with   thermodynamics of recrystallization.

Nanobes are the transitional form of inanimate objects to living objects.  Supramolecular thermodynamics is the driving force of this transition.
