Edward Shaver, CTO explains how it all started
Entropy is the heartbeat of the Universe, and the engine of creation for everything in the reality we inhabit, including ourselves. Entropy is the measure of the energy of a system that is so randomized that it can no longer be used for other chemical or mechanical processes. Perhaps the most important and fundamental property of the universe is that entropy is always trying to increase. Hot things get cooler. Chemical processes unfold so that the amount of useable energy remaining always decreases. By forcing energy to eternally move in one direction, it can also be used to create something out of nothing. Stars, planets, and ultimately human beings all owe their existence to this most basic truth about the way that energy flows and the Universe evolves.
