"Gain of entropy eventually is nothing more nor less than loss of information"
2nd Law of Thermodynamics: The entropy of an isolated system consisting of two regions of space, isolated from one another, each in thermodynamic
equilibrium in itself, but not in equilibrium with each other, will, when the isolation that separates the two regions is broken, so that the two
regions become able to exchange matter or energy, tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value when the jointly communicating system
reaches thermodynamic equilibrium.
Increased Entropy is the gradient from order to disorder. Decreased Entropy is the gradient from disorder to ordered. Entropy, in an isolated system,
tends to increase. Heat flows into cold when seeking equilibrium... but heat from a colder system does not flow towards the hotter (more ordered)
I didn't realize Al and Stevie figured out how to break Thermodynamics.
Also, you seem to contradict yourself. In the first paragraph I quoted in my reply, you state these two propositions.
If the 'soul' is merely the organized energy of the person, then the loss of the organic computer (the brain) should only force the energy that is
the individual to trancend the physical.
energy never disapates,
Energy most certainly does dissipate, else wise - ice cubes would never melt, ripples would never fade, and you would die of starvation... and then
your body would never decay. I think you mean that energy cannot be destroyed. That certainly is true, but if you posit the soul is made of energy -
then it cannot "transcend the physical". Energy is the physical
. Energy and Matter are one in the same. To transcend from the material to the
immaterial would generate a net loss of energy in the Universe - which (as already stated) cannot be created or destroyed.
