Physics of Life : Baryogenesis and Nucleosynthesis

The Standard Model of Physics and Quantum Mechanics provides a foundation for understanding the formation of Atoms. Current advancements to the Standard Model include the NMSSM-Next to Mininmal Super Symmetric Extension to the Standard Model. This advanced Super Symmetric Model postulates the existence of numerous yet to be discovered particles that may have relevance to the origin of replicating and self-assembly forms of matter. It is probable that life has its origins from these non-Atomic particles. However, life as we know it on Earth is in Atomic form and therefore I will concentrate on its "Baryonic" evolution.

Synthesis of life's essential atomic elements

1. Baryogenesis forming Hydrogen
2. Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN)/Primordial Nucleosythesis (ie.forming Deuterium, Helium, Lithium, and Berylium)
3. Stellar Nucleosynthesis (ie. Helium, Carbon, Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Sulfur)
4. Nucleosynthesis during various types of Supernova Events ( ie. Type Ia, Ib, Type II, and Type III )
5. Nucleosynthesis from Cosmic Ray Spallation (ie. Cosmic Ray + Atom = New Atom(s) ) ( Boron, Lithium, Berylium, Carbon-14, Chlorine, Iodine, Gold, and other isotopes)
6. Nucleosynthesis from Active Galactic Nuclear Jets ( Light Nuclei and CNO )
7. Radioactive Decay Processes
8. ? Nucleosynthesis from High Energy Gamma Ray + Infrared Ray = Positron/Electron Pair followed by an electron combining with a slow moving proton to create a Hydrogen Atom . The proton in this scenario might be derived from a positron combining with a pion (generated from 2 Gamma Rays) . It is also possible for the electron to combine with a proton to form a Neutron (p+ + e- = n + electron neutrino).
9. Nucleosynthesis from Cosmic Accretion Processes (ie Phosphorus creation from a White Dwarf Spiralling into a Black Hole, Nickle-56, and other r-process based Atoms)
