I assume here you are talking about the microcosm of the macrocosm of life. We breathe, as humans, so many breaths in a year, and the planet rotates,
surprisngly somewhat accordingly, reflecting this microcosm of the macrocosm.
: a measure of the unavailable energy in a closed thermodynamic system that is also usually considered to be a measure of the system's
disorder, that is a property of the system's state, and that varies directly with any reversible change in heat in the system and inversely with the
temperature of the system; broadly : the degree of disorder or uncertainty in a system
a : the degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity
b : a process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder
: chaos, disorganization, randomness
Entropy: Tying everything together by pulling it apart. Entropy is like the missing link of the whole meaning of life debate. Why is life so unfair
and filled with suffering? If karma is real why have not the most wicked of us been struck down? Evil seems to outweigh good on such a large scale, it
boggles the mind that ponders god's reasoning. But entropy is the natural order of the universe, entropy exists before order. Entropy is so strong
yet we have managed to see order emerge despite it. When we think of animals eating one another we just think that is nature, not that is evil. Evil
is the natural way of the universe, as is entropy.
First. I would argue that this has anything to do with "God's reasoning." Let's just deal with the simplest of the definitions: the degree of
uncertainty or disorder within a system.
This has neither a good nor evil value. It just is what it is. And what is may have to do with God's reasoning , if anything at all, is the thing
we have to understand and conquer for survival. But I am not even so sure of that, for I find fault with your idea, inherent within, that God set
this all up for us, and intended it to be so.....
Did we not choose what we call free will? And would that not have been the moment that entropy became a factor, and was then set in motion? Enropy
is simply a factor, like weather.....not a judgement, nor an evaluation, as evil....and therefore, I do not agree that evil is the "natural way" of
the universe. It may guarantee a better survival rate on one hand: i.e., the man who pulls a gun on me to rob me, because this evil is on his mind
and not mine, has the advantage, obviously. However, if you put so many like minded people as the one who would rob you of what is yours by right and
earning together on a ship, and send them into space, once they run out of food, or entertainment, even, who and how many will survive after so long a
time? Do you see my point? I don't agree that evil or entropy are necessarily a natural or planned state to foment growth which is what I assume
you mean here. In fact, both of them, and perfection, competition for survival, which has to do with evolution, as you describe it (growth), natural
selection, whatever you wish to call it, probably have very little to do with God.
Combining these elements I assume the meaning of life is the creation of an existence in which infinite, exponential, evolution and bliss can be
achieved by sacrificing immediate perfection and true oneness as god in the now, but still allowing its existence in the past, present, and future.
I am not sure what this means, to be frank. I don't want oneness with anything....do you, really? Do you want to be a complete copy of something
and perceive this is necessary for peace, love, contentment? If so, I find this the most sad and disheartening thing I read on this website daily. I
would be bored to tears with someone just like me......
What happened to tolerance. You see, I don't really believe there is true randomness, and think our challenge is more along the lines of diversity,
acceptance, tolerance. Matter may degrade uniformly, but we have a lot of new science that says that is bullhockey. It may, in fact,
fluctuate......dependent upon several factors. And none of them have to do with perfection, or really randomness. This knowledge has just been
hidden for a very long time, so that we could be convinced we must be only one to get along and promote survival, seek perfection, and settle for
Even randomness has a pattern. Therein lies God. We, perhaps, are not meant to know nor see that pattern, but only to accept.....it is called faith.
It is called tolerance. It is called not knowing, nor seeing, nor applying science nor numbers, nor anything we have an understanding to,
when you truly love, do you consciously choose, or does the heart, the core of you, without consulting your consciousness, whatsoever. This, I think,
and accepting it, without rhyme, reason or science, but instead, with tolerance, acceptance and faith is our challenge.
