Scientific wealth building secrets! - #1 - Entropy
This is a series of articles about studying general scientific ideas to create a wealth building system that works according to the laws of the Universe. These concepts come from observing our environment. Scientists have discovered that the laws of nature follow certain patterns. Some physical laws seem to be present everywhere, from the tiny atoms to the enormous stars. Everything on the physical realm tend to be influenced by these laws, therefore they can be applied to your businesses too as you will see in just a few minutes. The whole series contain the following articles .

Multiplication 4. Synergism 5. Inertia 6. Gravity 7. Diversification Entropy also referred to as the second law of thermodynamics is a widely known scientific concept. This law of nature is amazing! It defines important aspects of the world. The law of entropy establishes that the amount of energy available to perform useful work within a closed system decreases with time. Entropy is a universal tendency in the physical world. All things tend to reduce their amount of overall potential energy. Systems become more disordered, chaotic and disorganized over time.
If I would describe this concept in my own words I would said that everything which possess energy constantly seeks to release that energy. Everything in the physical realm is affected by this law. Things get old, dirty, disorganized, fall apart, break down, etc. From our point of view, there is a tendency to chaos in the Universe, but if you analyze this further, you realize that this may not be the ultimate truth about entropy. The truth is that energy “seeks” to be released. It constantly “tries” to expand from areas of higher concentration to areas of lower concentration. For example, you take a gas and compress it within a container. That gas will remain there for as long as the container can keep it compressed. The very second that gas or part of it can escape the container it will do so. Then its atoms or molecules will keep expanding farther away from each other in an increasingly disorganized way.
They will move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. The same happens with everything else that have potential energy. If you suspend something on thin air with your hand, the force of gravity will be acting upon it. This object or substance will have potential energy. The second you leave it alone it will fall to the ground. It doesn’t stop there. This object or substance keeps having potential energy. It is made of atoms and molecules which are bound together by chemical forces. These molecules will tend to fall apart over time. The object or substance will decompose and form simpler bodies or particles.
The process will keep on indefinitely. If the substance is a liquid for example, it may evaporate if it is exposed to Sun light. It may become a gas and its molecules can fall apart. Common sense tells us that energy tend to go from areas of major concentration to areas of minor concentration. It is a pattern. It happens all the time. You rarely see a rock moving upward without apparent reason getting back to the mountain and becoming part of it, which is a most complex system. The opposite happens. The rock separates from the most complex system (the mountain) fall down due to the force of gravity and become part of a simpler system.
