_{[0]}), where k is Boltzmann's constant, and

_{[0]}is the number of states in the closed system. Anentropy (order), A, arises from the entropy of the system as A=k(ln(ln

_{[0]}))=k(ln(S/k)) and represents a subsystem of continuous, maximally unchanged states.

Life may originate with the infrequent occurence of substantial anentropy. For instance, the universe has an entropy S

_{U}~10

^{86}erg/deg (Guth). Its anentropy involves an unchanging maximum ln((10

^{86}erg/deg)/k)=

_{[0]A,U}~235 continuous states, enough to occasion sufficient order for at least one system to evolve biologically.
