The universe tends towards disorder. But how come nobody knows why?

Entropy is the physicist’s magic word, invoked to answer to some of the biggest questions in cosmology. Yet a quantum rethink may be needed to tell us what it actually is

Astute readers should get a kick out of this one. I answered that question back in 1980 when I submitted my paper on it to Science magazine. After the inevitable rejection, it became the Sixth Assumption of Science, complementarity (All things are subject to divergence and convergence from other things) in The Scientific Worldview[1] and was published as a separate paper in 2008 as “Resolution of the SLT-order paradox.”[2]

The fact this question is still being asked in a major scientific news magazine 40 years later, teaches us two valuable lessons:

1.)  Despite the observation there are over 2 trillion galaxies, cosmogonists and regressive physicists still assume the universe is finite.
2.)  The blockade against progressive physics and the Eighth Assumption of Science, infinity (The universe is infinite, both in the microcosmic and macrocosmic directions) has been unrelenting. Physics and cosmology are the worse for it. The dumb questions keep rolling in...

As I pointed out in the above references, once you assume infinity, the answer to that dumb question is obvious: Each portion of the infinite universe is produced by the coming together of other things (an increase in negentropy) and thereafter is subject to coming apart (an in increase in entropy).

The erroneous statement in the title of Michael Brook’s New Scientist article is otherwise known as “the heat death of the universe.” Anyone who makes such a statement is assuming finity, as required in the current cosmogony, the Big Bang Theory, and in the rest of regressive physics.

The simple explanation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics (SLT) goes like this: Any isolated part of the universe will lose matter and/or motion to its environment. For instance, you can bring materials together to build a house (convergence), but if left isolated (i.e., without maintenance) that structure eventually will come apart (divergence). Now, this is little more than a reiteration of Newton’s First Law of Motion: A body in motion stays in motion. Each portion of the infinite universe, including all the parts of that house, are always in motion. Since perfect isolation is impossible, the constituents and/or their motions in that house eventually will be emitted to its environment.

So, what happens to those constituents in an infinite universe? They just go somewhere else. The divergence in one place just becomes convergence in another place. That’s why I call the Sixth Assumption “complementarity.” You can see examples of this at every turn. For every plant or animal that is growing (matter coming together), another is dying (matter coming apart). That’s why infinity resolves the SLT-order paradox: If the SLT describes destruction, how come there is construction all around us? As with all paradoxes, that one arises because it is founded on an erroneous assumption. In this case, it is finity.

Treating the entire universe as a finite, isolated object, as cosmogonists do, logically leads, not only to a beginning, but also to an end for the universe. The “heat death” part of the regressive assertion implies “energy” invariably is lost due to the inevitable leakage from what are admittedly not “isolated” systems. As I explained in the neomechanics section of “Infinite Universe Theory,” “energy” is simply a calculation. It neither exists nor occurs; it is neither matter nor motion, but a description of the motion of matter. Above all, energy is not some ghostly matterless motion that escapes into the imagined perfectly empty space surrounding the regressive’s isolated system.

Of course, the mystification of energy is crucial for the regressive treatment of matter in motion. It is why the Fifth Assumption of Science, conservation (Matter and the motion of matter can be neither created nor destroyed) is stated improperly by regressives as “Energy can be neither created nor destroyed” in the First Law of Thermodynamics. It is done that way because the carrier for electro-magnetic motion is aether. All motion requires a material carrier for its transfer from one part of the universe to another per inseparability, the Fourth Assumption of Science. The “heat” regressives require for the heat death claim cannot even leave its assumed finite universe without it being surrounded by aether, its essential material carrier. In lieu of that, regressives must treat the motion emitted by all things as truly magical.

In the Brook’s article there is much speculation about the scientific reason for the “arrow of time.” This problem is also solved by infinity, which is consupponible with the Seventh Assumption of Science, irreversibility (All processes are irreversible). All portions of the infinite universe are in motion with respect to each other. There is no way for any of those portions and their environments to converge or diverge from each other twice in the same way. In other words, time travel has been and will continue to be impossible forever.
