I wish there were a principle opposite to entropy.
I chose that word for yesterday’s title because I can see the effects of entropy all around me. The state of my home has deteriorated in way that surely is attributable to entropy. Only heroic and persistent effort is going to make possible the level of digging out required.
A while back, I was considering the idea of accretion as the opposite principle I had in mind. I suppose it’s possible that accretion of accomplishments in the form of clearing space might have some positive effect.
The trouble of course is that that entropy is a constant, whilst effort is sporadic. Which means that a precarious equilibrium is the best state I can hope for.
Better than being buried in the detritus of life, I suppose.
