Entropy is a two-edged sword. It is our life-force; but if it accelerates and begins to runaway with our energy, it can become a death sentence. Our society has within itself a variety of entropy amplifiers that increase our system’s entropy by orders of magnitude – warming the planet and wasting our hard work. If we don’t get this fixed, these entropy amplifiers will truly spell our end.
“If your theory is found to be against the second law of theromodynamics, I can give you no hope; there is nothing for it but to collapse in deepest humiliation.” — Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington
