Could life be a catalyst to help accelerate the entropic process of the universe?
Sean Carroll suggested that energy in to earth from sun is sent back out again as entropy. Please could someone confirm if this has been demonstrated? My point is that if energy is being converted to entropy or another form of energy as a consequence of having been in contact with earth, has anybody tried to quantify the contribution of life to this conversion process? how does life stack up against other forces driving the arrow of time?
