This book studies the role of physical mechanisms in the growth and replication of living organisms. Presently, these phenomena are overwhelmingly considered as biological, genetic, and biochemical ones, which is much true. However, natural phenomena exist in a real world that does not have purely physical or biological boundaries, which subjectively imposed by excessive human desire for classification and clustering of everything.
