Hi, I'm sorry and hope this forum allows people who don't study but are interested in physics to post their primitive questions: I like watching documentaries and in every documentary on physics that i watched when it came to entropy, it was simply described as disorder as if that was a thing. Is it only me being retarded? I mean, to me- "order" is a word that points to just anybody's personal preference of organization of things in any sort of dimension (being it space/time, alphabet or numbering system...) based on his current practical needs or cultural bias. Maybe Jackson Pollock had different concept of order than Rothko. Is an English garden of higher entropy than a French one? There is a individual sense of order just like there's a sense of beauty but there is no universal "order". One of the few things i know about entropy is that it manifests as dissipating heat and as the entropy grows with time and heat dissipates it leads to homogeneity. What confuses me even more is that homogeneity gives me the impression of order rather than disorder and the beginnings of big bang although hot seem to me much more homogenous than the universe at this point. It fascinates me very much but this important topic confuses me more than anything else from classical physics, if anyone could help me make the meaning of entropy a little more clear I would be very grateful.
