The Eventual Destruction of the Universe

Posted by Andrew B

A note on The Eventual Destruction of the Universe andrew bartlett

Our Universe is made up of atoms and molecules that form elements and become us and the matter around us.  Stars are the furnaces that provide matter to the universe and it’s hypothesised that the Big Bang provided the sum of energy to create all that exists and all that will exist.  According to the second law of thermodynamics, which Elbert Einstein held to be the premier law of all science, the energy from the Big Bang is finite though and its creative effects will wane until ultimately, the universe will cool to absolute zero, and all matter will transform back to the simplest, single atomic element, hydrogen gas.  In other words, according to this law our universe and everything in it, including us, is DOOMED.  It is said there in a dissymmetry in Nature!

But law…  What is a law?  It’s a concept that is developed by a mind, and perhaps substantiated by other minds through theoretical methods like mathematics, chemistry, physics or philosophy which then becomes a part of a social paradigm.  In other words, it’s a model of reality believed by the masses.

Fortunately laws are just that – models of reality.  It turn out that entropy has an opposite.  It’s known as negentropy.

Negentropy is defined by biologists as the basis for purpose or direction in life, namely cooperative or moral instincts1.

The ancient philosophers Plato and Aristotle, followed by ancient Greek mathematicians postulated an ongoing, negentropic universe based on ethics; a universe that is not doomed by an ultimate destruction.  Isaac Newton, in his unpublished heresy papers discovered not until the 20th century (not published by Newton for fear of incarceration,) proves that the mechanistic world view, balanced by another more profound philosophy of science (The Platonic Science for Ethical Ends) cancels the second law of thermodynamics and provides a framework for an ever evolving, never ending universe.

Ethics in all things is the key to the survival of everything.

    Andrew I had to read this twice (science was NEVER my fave subject at school) but I got it.

    I appreciate you providing the research from opposing schools of thought, then deriving your opinion, which I share.

    Said in a slightly spiritual way……………….Karma counts!

    Cheers Liz

    As you know Andrew, this stuff is totally over my head also. I have also not been one that really got science at school and to be honest still don’t understand these things. I know the book you have around this is very interesting and I appreciate you taking some of the key elements for us and bringing it to this interesting blog.

    Interestingly, this topic is small part science and large part art – ethics being the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles. I think a persons morality is determined by there aesthetical world view.

    Thanks Andrew for the reminder that we are one of the same and all interconnected.
    Great stuff.

    Very interesting

    Ethics (God) in all things is the key to the survival of everything????????!

    Andrew you will have the Masters wanting to co-author & present with you soon eg Bruce Lipton & Demartini

    unfortunately this mostly escapes me but I did find my self coming back and reading one particular paragraph

    “But law… What is a law? It’s a concept that is developed by a mind, and perhaps substantiated by other minds through theoretical methods like mathematics, chemistry, physics or philosophy which then becomes a part of a social paradigm. In other words, it’s a model of reality believed by the masses.
    Fortunately laws are just that – models of reality”

    and I think I kind of get it, isn’t everything more or less a concept developed at some level by the mind and then substantiated by others, otherwise the concept would die.
    interesting stuff Andrew
