Hey all, My meditations on life and death have been, for lack of another word, provoked, after hearing of a spate of deaths of people I know. Like many others on PF, I tend to think scientifically rather than emotionally and here is (an overview of) what I have thus far: 1. The entropy (Delta S) of any system is continually increasing. Things will become more random, more bizarre, and literally, unordered. For those thermodynamic illiterates, entropy is a measure of the randomness of the system. 2. The total energy of any isolated system is a constant. This follows from the basic principle of science that energy can be neither destroyed nor created. Clearly, life and death must be mere transformations of energy. I am looking for more. Could you please fill in??
