Biotic organisation from self-replication
Biologists at the end of the 20th Century saw evolution as contingent upon history. It was a strictly
Fitness linked life history traits are instead exposed to a natural selection that unfolds inevitably from the origin of self-replication, and this provides an arrow of time that points in the direction of major evolutionary trends and transitions, instead of other directions.
Malthusian Relativity is a theory on the latter. Based on Darwin, it extends classical life history theory into inevitable population dynamic feed-back selection, paying special attention to the intra-specific interference competition that is density dependent.
