THERE WAS NEGATIVE ENTROPY IN THE LACK OF TIME
A LIVE SYSTEM BEING MAINTAINED ON BRINGING INTO BEING
ENTROPY IS ON AT THE BEGINNING OF TIME ANYMORE...

“Time” is a development based on the triad of matter, energy and space: when all these structures are fixed or don’t undergo any change, we would not talk about the phenomenon of time. Even though we are in the tendency of seeing ourselves as the highest point of evolution, we are actually structural deformations which underwent a change. As structural deformations, we are in a great aesthetic orientation that surrounds our environment. We are not yet aware that this is an illusion that we have created in order to keep our current situation. Like all other species that must continue...

Since the appearance of any plant is seen aesthetically by us, we cannot perceive it as a structural deformation. This fact is the sign of entropy, that is, defeat. Although the microscopic appearance of the snowflake, the second law of thermodynamics is a structural deformation brought about by cooling, we describe it as “good” de to its aesthetic display. But in the same way, since an existing hose, a tornado, or a lightning in the sky frighten us, we describe it as “bad” due to the fact that we perceive the threat to our existence or a destruction beyond aesthetic value. Actually, they're the same thing. One gives archaic confidence in life. The other one threatens our lifestyle. Our genes, which are held firmly to life, use the choice of the flower's aesthetic options. But decay or destruction is the next step in evolution.

Now we know that the universe we live in and the world we live on is are not something that works perfectly, but the result of a chaotic coincidence. Nevertheless, it is perfect because it is the only place where we can live or breathe, because we cannot foresee the future. Whether the species will continue or not after us, the status of the nature for healing itself and preparing the ground for new species and several variables that are wondered are among the existent possibilities.

Today, we can access the knowledge of those before us through the cell structure of any bacteria and DNA of a person or an animal via partnership systems among the cells. In terms of knowledge, we can shape the present in our journey backwards. What about after us? While Laplace is saying “The present state of the universe is the result of the previous state of it; is the cause of the next situation, he is also mentioning about the infinite connection of everything in the universe between each other.

Of course, it is correct to say that this strong connection applies not only to nature but also to this social system which is the return of nature. Assuming that we are a “species”, we can easily say that we have adapted it to this social system that we artificially produce by imitating this systematic connection of nature.


A certain hierarchical order and the existing formations brought about by this order and the strong connection of everything within the system prepare a base to support today's order completely and to keep it up. We are actually strong about what we have learned. The problem is that the system we are developing is really “ideal for us?

 

Like our genes that are clinging to life strictly and connecting us to life with a certain illusion, how rigid will this artificial consciousness become we have established afterwards in the system? We don’t know, yet.


Believing that we have five percent knowledge of the universe, it is strange and truly peculiar to human to believe strictly in any one of the billions of possibilities.
Our belief systems and everything else already has a convenient structure in order to maintain the existing consciousness.


We want to protect and keep all these structures alive because we are already prioritizing ourselves and putting ourselves at the top of all the other species of the pyramid.


The great of species!
