2010 Origins of life and evolution of the biosphere  
Minimal life begins at the intersection of a series of processes which need to be isolated, differentiated and duplicated as such in computers.  ...  Since John Von Neumann and Alan Turing pioneering works on self-replication and morphogenesis, proponents of artificial life have chosen to resolutely neglecting a lot of materialistic and quantitative  ...  Acknowledgements I am indebted to Professor Albert Eschenmoser for several conversations regarding some of the issues described here.
