I was following the conversation on consciousness and life and was
trying to find out if there's a relationship between the number of
Bosons and Fermions in living organisms (as units and as parts of
larger more complex organisms) versus their ratio in inanimate
objects. I do believe there's something there but can't find any info
to back it up.
I don' t think there's any significance to the ratio. For one thing
it's not clear how to count them. A C12 nucleus is a boson, but a C13
nucleus is a fermion - but they are both made of quarks which are
fermions. If you consider the numbers in the universe I think photons
from the CMB far out number fermions (at least the ones we know about).
