As Albert Einstein said, time is an illusion. Time is made up and almost 'imagined' by humans. Obviously, we need to make sense of things happening one after the other so we created time. Entropy is order in the universe going into chaos. Let's take a pile of sand for example. When the wind blows on the sand dune, the sand particles will blow off and blow into the wind or even create another pile somewhere else. What is the probability of the sand blowing off and forming a sand castle or an image of a famous person? Impossible, I would and many physicists say unless it's the supernatural at work. Einstein said that time is inter-twined with space called space-time. The nearer you get to a black hole, the more time distorts. In the centre, time does not exists anymore.
So, yes, I would say that time is measured through the entropy of things. If everything was static, it wouldn't feel like time exists at all. Events occur one after the other, as entropy tries to bring order into chaos. The universe began as order and will end in chaos. The whole mission of the universe is to begin orderly and end in chaos.
Hope that explains it, andrew savage.

"Without order nothing exists; without chaos nothing evolves..." Vinnie PazI am just curious what people think about this quote? True, not true, somewhat true? Explain.

Does anyone else think the government will eventually undergo the process of entropy?

In today's world, how often do you have to make order out of chaos?

All things started out perfect and became more fragile the more complex they became. Evolution adopts to the change become more complex and even more fragile....Thing about it in macro and micro terms.
