It takes effort, energy, to keep things orderly. Without it things tend toward it greatest level of entropy or disorder. In simple terms it take effort, your energy, to keep your house from getting disorderly. Water wants to seek its lowest level of existence, highest disorder. In our world that is the ocean. Dust and dirt falls to the lowest surface which may temporarily be your living room floor. Mountains get weathered into boulders, rocks, stones, and finally sand before it is carried to the ocean depths. Only the force, the energy, from wind drives the waves that deposit sand on our beaches. This same wind prevents water from reaching its greatest disorder or calm.
In thermodynamics, entropy is commonly associated with the amount of order, disorder, or chaos in a thermodynamic system. Technically, entropy, from this perspective, is defined as a thermodynamic property which serves as a measure of how close a system is to perfect internal disorder.
Rudolf Clausius in 1865, stated that:
“The entropy of the universe tends to a maximum.” Thus, if entropy is associated with disorder and if the entropy of the universe is headed towards maximal entropy, then many are often puzzled as to the nature of the “ordering” process in light of the second law of thermodynamics, which states that the universe is headed towards maximal “disorder”. As was stated in the 2003 book, SYNC – the Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order by Steven Strogatz, “Scientists have often been baffled by the existence of spontaneous order in the universe. The laws of thermodynamics seem to dictate the opposite, that nature should inexorably degenerate toward a state of greater disorder, greater entropy. Yet all around us we see magnificent structures—galaxies, cells, ecosystems, human beings—that have all somehow managed to assemble themselves.”
So the debate continues as to why there is such order when disorder is to reign. For me the answer is simple. It is found in a few simple verses in Colossians Chapter 1:
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
He is the power that keeps entropy from having its way. He can have the same impact on us and the forces that push us in the wrong direction, into disorder. We need to trust and follow.
