1 m ~50 μm. While this kind of simplistic scaling is dangerous, it provides a reasonable estimate of the size of a “large” cell membrane. The bottom line: biological structural hierarchy is in part generated by the need for self-­ assembly of organisms. Is this hierarchical organization advantageous to an organism? This book will show some of the many ways in which this hierarchy works very effectively on a microscopic scale. To learn more about the macroscopic structure of organisms, consult your biology, anatomy, and physiology texts.

4. This focus on terms in equations is not to imply that the secrets of life lie in values of mathematical expansion parameters; it is rather an assertion that when one wants to quantitatively describe biosystems and their behaviors, one should look to relatively simple principles and associated equations. The wonder of life lies in the incredible variety of unexpected behaviors that can be observed and measured. It is also underscored by our unexpected ability to describe many of them quantitatively with simple principles.
