    That physics imposes hard limits on life is not necessarily a novel idea. D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s book On Growth and Form already put forth the idea that morphology and growth are dictated by physical laws and can be described mathematically. And Vogel’s book Life’s Devices: The Physical World of Animals and Plants is a great, if slightly dated, introduction to biomechanics.
