Fast Entropy


The e th Law of Thermodyanics, also called the Principle of Fast Entropy, states that the entropy of a system shall increase as quickly as possible. Or stated more precisely, entropy increase shall be subject to the Principle of Least Time. The e th Law is subject to a further generalization akin to the Principle of Stationary Time.

The e th Law drives the emergence of life, intelligence and civilization. Hence, it can be used as the foundation for a unified sience of society. Since the laws of physics are held to be invariant across our universe, and further since such a social science is expressed in physical terms, then such a social science e th Law can be applied to any society any time and any where, whether on Earth regarding human society or elsewhere concerning extrasolar societies.

Fast Entropy applies to a wide range of phenomena. It explains rates of heat flow, biological reproduction rates, economic expansions and recessions, and human relationships. Fast Entropy can even be used to develop principles of policy development.



INTRODUCTORY BOOK: Physical History and Economics, 2nd Edition, a mini-treatise (2009):


Just as the Copernican Revolution lead to a unified model of physical mechanics on Earth and in the heavens, making possible our modern high standards of living, the e th Law can lead to a revolution in the social sciences to allow a new, deeper understanding of our society that can allow us to successfully meet the unprecedented challenges faced by our society.

Further, the e th Law gives back spiritually what cold, hard science takes away. Life can be defined as the progression of the e th Law. Since, as living, intelligent organisms, we are products of the e th Law, we each have a personal connection to the progression of the Universe.

 Life is literally the production of entropy. Hence, we exist in a living universe, from the shining of stars, to the formation of clouds, to the emergence of intelligent, civilized humans. Our very essence is a cosmological process, and so our living beings are all connected to the universe itself.
