In existographies, Michael Brooks (15- AE) (1970- ACM) (CR:5) (LH:3) (TL:8) is an English quantum physicist and science writer, noted for his 2005 to 2008 work on abioism.


A summary of Brooks' 2008 list of 13 things that don't make sense, according to modern science, from Thims' 2016 BPE talk: “Lotka’s Jabberwock: on the ‘Bio’ of BioPhysical Economics”.[1]

In 2005, Brooks, in New Scientist, penned the article “13 Things That Don’t Make Sense”, the 6th most nonsensical thing being on the prolonged debate about whether or not carbon 14 emissions from soil on Mars, found during the Viking Mission (1976), indicate that "life" on Mars exists or has existed?[2]

In 2008, Brooks, in his 13 Things That Don’t Make Sense: the Most Baffling Mysteries of Our Time, a book-length expansion of his former article, defined “life” as the 5th biggest thing in modern science that doesn’t make sense.[3]
