The statistical measure Evolutionary Entropy characterizes Darwinian Fitness and predicts the outcome of competition for limited resources between related entities at various levels of organization: metabolic, cellular, organismic and social. I will discuss the mathematical basis of the selection principle and describe its application to the evolution of aging and the origin of age-related diseases.
