Ok, so now David Ruelle threw his hat into the origin of life world. That’s a good thing.

The origin of life seen from the point of view of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, David Ruelle (29 January 2017)

This note presents a minimal approach to the origin of life, following standard ideas. We pay special attention to the point of view of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and in particular to detailed balance. As a consequence we propose a characterization of pre-biological states.

More is better, I say.
