I was wondering:
About entropy. What I’ve read and not passed out while reading has led me to believe that entropy, the increase of disorder, would lead to an increasingly warm and decreasingly effective universe. By decreasingly effective, I mean that it would be harder to get a yield from any give reaction or process. So, would the universe eventually slow down and stop and wallow in its own heat? Would the matter of the universe seek to release its potential energy by returning to a center point? Would the return to singularity combine with the great heat of the universe allow for a new Big Bang? Could this mean that the Universe doesn’t really have a beginning, but repeats infinitely the explosion-expansion-implosion process? Is my concept of entropy entirely wrong?
The reason I bring this up is becuase I’ve seen two strains of thought: Original Boom v. Divine Creation, and I thought well, why is there necessarily (sp?) a creation? WHy not infinite repetition? What I understand of singularity (the compression of matter into a single point) is that all the laws of physics go out the window and time itself becomes meaningless (vanished? stretched? simply gone? held in abeyance?).
Is all this a possibility? Am I rehashing old thoughts? Am I blowing smoke up my tailpipe?
I’ve seen quite an interesting collection of people on this board and thought I’d toss this all out there.
