Entropy…

We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom..

I do not want a rainbow neither would I ask favors from God both are somewhere in the sky and frankly, I am tired of looking up: – I am not sure what, or who is there, it is better to look down so that I can walk straight and do not trip, over the mythical rocks of fabled happiness.–

Wish to reproduce poem by Ruskin Bond which captures the essence..

Silent Birth.

When the earth gave birth to this tree,
There came no sound:
A green shoot thrust
In silence from ground.
Our births don’t come so quiet-
Most lives run riot-
But the but opens silently,
And flowers gives way to fruits.
so must we search
for the stillness within tree,
The silence within the root.
.

Essentially, wish to use this blog to compile my thoughts, as a forum to narrate, express, “Reproduce” & share, what I’ve learned & what inspires me. ‘My Banyan Tree’. As such,the contents are not necessary my own writing. The objective is to create a short-lived personal “Idea Universe” and share it with friends, who are likely to care and connect to these thoughts.

However, world suffering with ‘ Attention Deficit Syndrome’, not sure if this holds any meaning,

As regards the title Entropy, I am deeply intrigued & fascinated by concept of Entropy which is the only quantity in the physical sciences that “picks” a particular direction for time, sometimes called an Arrow of Time. As we go “forward” in time, the Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that the entropy of an isolated system can only increase or remain the same; it cannot decrease. Hence, from one perspective, entropy measurement is thought of as a kind of clock.

‘ Entropy ‘… second law of thermodynamics, –” disorder ” is always increasing….

S= K Log W:

What you Focus on grows, What you think about expands, and What you dwell on, determines your destiny..

At first, there was only one language. All speech was poetry, all science was physics, all invention was engineering, all decoration was art, all reasoning was logic, and all speculation was philosophy. But later, many subtopics arose until at length, knowledge had fragmented into so many mutually incomprehensible sub-subspecialties that it could hardly be called knowledge at all. Information was spread out uniformly. Any fragment was as likely as any other to be in the right place to look.

The second law of thermodynamics was at work, and entropy seemed to have increased to its maximum.

    ENTROPIC HOPE
    — James Ph. Kotsybar

    Dr. Smart, with sweeping dioramics,
    summarized theory accepted today:
    “The first few laws of thermodynamics:
    You can’t win, break even or get away.

    “No matter speed of acceleration,
    the universe runs down since the Big Bang.
    The fate of order is dissipation.
    The spring, once sprung, can’t be re-sprung. It sprang.

    “A system needs energy to survive
    or it’s unable to do work, of course.
    On galactic scales or like us, alive,
    complexity is the result of force.

    “And though the second law says we can’t win,
    it’s only ‘law’ to a statistician.”

    Browsing your blog, I am always interested and happy to come.

    I just wanted to add this saying.

    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. R. Niebuhr

    I just wrote a blog called “The Birth of Meaning”. What a coincidence. Beautiful poem btw. So very true. “Our births don’t come so quiet-” Mine was a violent one. My father almost lost my mother & I. Even as I write this comment, there is still no silence. The loud sounds of one of the busiest US freeways runs through my head but not my heart. I may not be able to hear its beating, of course, but I know it does ’cause I’m still breathing, carrying on~

    I had a dream the other day of a fellow riding a tracker … showing me this beautiful nice green cut grass–by a woodsy area. In the center was a big carrot growing. It was partially sticking up out of the ground; however, still deeply-rooted. For some reason, the only peace, stillness I find lately is in my dreams. In reality, … well, living in the city …. finding quietness is a challenge… :)
