Meaning a sand castle could coincidently form by the winds blowing dust randomly It won't because the statistical likelihood of the wind and molecules to just happen to be in the right position and velocity for this sand castle to just appear is so slim, I do not have enough memory in my computer to type out all the zeros I need to put behind the odds of it happening 1 in 1,,,,,, This statistical principle is so powerful and universal, we call it a law.
It explains a lot of things in our universe.
Before we knew about the second law of thermodynamics, it used to bother physicist that we could move in any direction in space up, down, forward, backward but we could only move in one direction in time. Space and time being so closely linked, why was it we could only move forward in time? We only go from one moment to another as entropy increases. Ahhh, I see what you are thinking.
Yes, our universe is a closed system, and yes that does mean it will die,. You think it's a little sad that in the end chaos will always win? I don't think so, after all life is beautiful don't you think? Life is amazing in that it can bring a little bit of order in this chaotic world, but funny enough, without entropy there would be no life.
So I don't think it's sad, it's just the natural state of affairs that we will grow old, live our lives fighting entropy, and we will die.
If you want to read a book that asks the questions: what if we could defeat entropy? What if we could win?
What would happen? Read this book.
