Entropy and the 2nd law

does life increase or decrease entropy?

 

according to our second law

entropy increases,

as the potential of matter to do work is realised

 

since nothing exists

Matter bound within space

realises a lower potential

 

the potential for mass

to perform the same task twice,

Is infinitely small.

My ipadery

Was a tree

hell, was a few hundred thousand trees

old as heck

and withered into coal

 

or some other fossil fuel

equally able to power the economies

that dig it up.

To create technology

 

in a perfect market

substitution is infinite

and technology will create itself.

through entropy

Liebig and his limits

The early science was concerned with the most limiting element to plant growth. Insufficient N and your plant wont’t reach its full potential

that which would hinder all; there is at least a resource whose substitution elasticity for others is less than 1.
