I’ve been learning a lot about entropy this week.
Crash Course: https://youtu.be/ZsY4WcQOrfk
Trying to compare thermodynamics to our personal lives is like trying to compare car mechanics and peanut butter, it’s better to not. But it’s hard to resist. In simple terms (perhaps too simple), Entropy is a measurement of disorder. In life, order is more likely to move towards disorder. Order becomes disorder. It’s equilibrium in a way. A hot cup of coffee becomes cool, roads grown worn, we grow old.
What I’m really looking for are systems to live by. I know what I want. Now it’s a matter of discovering how.
It’s sounds minor, but it’s helpful to know that things tend to get discorded over time, because we can build checks and balances into our lives that help stay focused on what’s important to us, instead of lost to the whims of, well, everything else.
