An entropic model of Gaia

We modify the Tangled Nature Model of Christensen et. al. (2002) so that the agents affect the carrying capacity. This leads to a model of species-environment co-evolution where the system tends to have a larger carrying capacity with life than without. We discuss the model as an example of an entropic hierarchy and some implications for Gaia theory.
