Abstract: A circular thermodynamics of organisms and sustainable systems is presented based on dynamic closures in nested space-time domains that enable the system to approach the ideal of zero entropy production simultaneously at equilibrium and far from equilibrium conditions.
Keywords: circular economy of nature; dynamic closure; space-time structure; zero-entropy model; quantum coherence; minimum entropy production; equilibrium and non-equilibrium
