Consider a cell. It has more efficiency than a human being even though a human being is a bulk of cells: The cell has fewer losses when it converts the food it ate for nutrition to do some sort of work. Does this mean that the entropy of organisms increases as they get more complicated? WOuld a higher life form produce more entropy than us? (Higher in terms of all physical capability to change the world it is manifested in)
Further does this imply, the more simple something is, the more efficient it is? Would a more complicated system be less efficient?
Consider complicated organisms, again a human for example. We have to eat and consume food to maintain our state. However, this process increases the total entropy as we break down long chains of biological polymers into many small simple ones. So, even if you are a complicated life form, do you need energy to maintain that complicated state?
tl;Dr: I am asking the relation between the complexities of system and efficiency. Would a more complicated system be less efficient? For those asking how to measure complexity.. you can choose any measure of your liking as long as it's consistent since it is a debated topic among scientists. You could even take the size of the genome if you wanted.
What I mean by efficiency: Efficency is the heat in / heat out ratio. Like the amount of energy we take in vs the amount of that we are able to use for any process. And the energy loss is like the entropy generated.
For example: consider the measure noted in this stack How efficient is the human body?
Say you start a small business then it provides some profit and you can tax it. To get more government funding , you need to making larger economic ventures. So if take entropy as the universal energy tax, then would creation of more and more complicated sorts of life be natural? I mean if you have a maximum entropy then it would lead to heat death, where all points in universe are in same temperature. SO what is it? how exactly does it all work out?
