The existence of entropy and its increase can be understood without reference to either statistical mechanics or heat engines. In days long gone, the second law of thermodynamics (which predated the rst law) was regarded as perhaps the most perfect and unassailable law in physics. It was even supposed to have philosophical import: It has been hailed for providing a proof of the existence of God (who started the universe oo in a state of low entropy, from which it is constantly degenerating…

Entropy, information, noise-studies on system evolution
TLDR
Three basics: entropy, information and noise are emphasized with regard to system evolution which is a field that can give people wisdom to solve system problems with domain knowledge.
