Entropy Explains Why There Are Immensely More Ways for Things to Go Wrong
One thing I’ve enjoyed learning about, lately, is the concept of entropy.
In the normal dictionary, entropy means a “state of disorder, confusion, and disorganisation.” In the science of physics, entropy is referred to as a measure of disorder or randomness in a system: the higher the entropy, the greater the disorder. And all this is at the heart of the second law of thermodynamics.
Entropy is an interesting concept because it explains why there are immensely more ways for things to go wrong than to go right. In a closed system (that is one without input of energy), entropy can only increase.
