Notes on Quasicrystals and the Origin of Life

John Gardiner

Abstract

We still do not understand the origins of life. Here I suggest that it may have arisen as a fractal quasicrystal of organic molecules on a metallic quasicrystalline template. It may have arisen at least twice, once with pentagonal symmetry and once with octagonal symmetry. In both instances these protolife forms are part of an imperfect fractal continuum from the subatomic to the galactic.

Keywords

Quasicrystals, Origin of Life, Grand Unifying Theory (GUT).
