One of the past posts I simply defined entropy, with a few bullet points. I think it explained it the best.
- A measure of the disorder or randomness in a closed system.
- The tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of inert uniformity.
- Inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society.
The most commonly seen topics for entropy are examples of things breaking down, or devolution. But, don’t discount simply things displaying disorder or randomness.
