Earth’s Orbital Chirality and Its Possible Role in Biomolecular Evolution

Yujian He, ZhiFeng Dai, LiXi Zeng, CongJu Li, Fei QI, ShengChu QI

Abstract

The natural Earth’s orbital chirality (EOC) and its force field were described. According to the second law of thermodynamics, it was suggested that the EOC force field could be a natural driving force to result in the origin of biomolecular homochirality, the evolution of biomolecular order and complexity, the origin of “Junk DNA” and the origin of biological information and biomolecular rhythms.

Keywords

Earth’s orbital chirality, driving force, biomolecular evolution, thermodynamics, rhythms
