Muddle Puddle with Entropy in Biology

"Thus, a living system is marked by two flows of matter: a thermodynamically-favored flux (TFF) of matter up an entropy gradient (which liberates heat in the processes), and a physiological flux (PF) of matter down an entropy gradient, which mobilizes free energy to do entropy-reducing work."
