Excellent!  Yes, complement is a much more appropriate relation between the ideas than compete, I think.  Thanks.

Constructor Theory proposes a physical universe at the microscale that could start here and unfold with new constraints "evolving" from earlier ones.  I see the heavier elements (e.g., carbon ... gold) being generated from later generation suns as a possible example of this. England seems to take this history into the abiogenesis by appealing to the idea of metabolic homeostasis with the production of dissipative systems being a likely outcome in this universe. Anyway, I should have used the term "complements" versus "competes."
