I ran across a curious quote earlier: The ultimate purpose of life, mind, and human striving: to deploy energy and information to fight back the tide of entropy and carve out refuges of beneficial order —Steven Pinker I decided to read up on entropy, in terms of what does it mean for everyday life? It got me to thinking - is this why we feel off when there's disorder in our lives, and we work to bring order back into it? (Although, some people might enjoy living in chaos, it's not a sustainable state.) Entropy increases on its own, so energy is required to bring back order. I don't know why, but I've never really considered entropy on a granular level, in terms of my personal challenges and triumphs. Not only does entropy affect my life, but it explains it. Life has problems, and struggles - but if we're honest, that stems from the law of probability. I've never looked at science quite like this - that it could make sense of my life in a very intimate way. There is a scientific explanation for the struggle...the occasional disorder. When life isn't going quite as we had hoped, when our best prepared plans are dashed - that is entropy. So, entropy is at work, when I'm experiencing trials and tribulations. It's as simple and complicated, as that. Have you considered entropy in this way?
