A recent paper by Professor Adrian Bejan published in Nature Scientific Reports unites animate and inmate life on Earth thanks to the Constructal Law.
Prof. Bejan demonstrate in this article that the simplest and oldest forms of evolutionary movement—rolling bodies and whirls of turbulence—exhibit the same body-size effect on life time and life travel as the evolutionary movement united by the body-size effect so far: animals, rivers, vehicles, jets and plumes.
In short, the bigger should last longer and travel farther.
