Phi-m is defined as the specific free energy rate expressed in units of energy per time per mass. Phi-m
is known to astronomers as the luminosity-to-mass ratio, to physicists as the power density, to geologists
as he specific radiant flux, to biologists as the specific metabolic rate and to engineers as the
Here are some estimated Free Energy Rate Densities:
Milky Way galaxy 0.5
Our Sun 2
Biosphere (plants) 900
Human body 20,000
Human brain 150,000
Human society 500,000
Modern CPU (computer brain) High and getting higher each year.
Internet and connected computers (society of computers) High and getting higher each year.
Notice the logarithmic progression. Notice the increasing need for energy.
Living Systems and Cosmic Evolution are subjects to be studied if you want to understand what is
