I strongly disagree. Intelligent life comes from intelligent life. violating that you violate every law in the universe. Systems do not tend toward order, systems left on their own, tend toward chaos.Let's suppose after the big event from where something came from nothing, the big soup of matter started defining the laws of interaction which govern this universe. I would imagine that life, not as we know it but rather in an abstract sense, developed from the newly defined laws and ordering of interacting matter to be in the form of energy. I would further postulate the energy would manifest itself as electrical, at least initially. Life as electrical energy could then reach its maximum potential for rate of development as the fastest moving object in the universe. Intelligent life as electrical energy would follow a purely logical path. Soon intelligence would move past a point where it would be recognizable to lower life forms. And so goes the history of the universe.
Basic science/chemistry book quoted below:
"Second Law of Thermodynamics states that all closed systems tend to maximize entropy. Reversing this ever increasing tendency toward disorder requires the input of energy. ... Overall, the entropy of the universe always increases"
