Summary of “Entropy: Why Life Always Seems to Get More Complicated”

Left to its own devices, life will always become less structured.
“The ultimate purpose of life, mind, and human striving: to deploy energy and information to fight back the tide of entropy and carve out refuges of beneficial order.” -Steven Pinker.
In the words of Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, “The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life because everything is pulling you to be more and more complex.”
Entropy helps explain many of the mysteries and experiences of daily life.
The collection of atoms that make up your body could be arranged in an infinite number of ways and nearly all of them lead to no form of life whatsoever.
In a universe where entropy rules the day, the presence of life with such organization, structure, and stability is stunning.
At the very least, life will not be optimal-maybe you didn’t grow up in the optimal culture for your interests, maybe you were exposed to the wrong subject or sport, maybe you were born at the wrong time in history.
Entropy provides a good explanation for why Murphy’s Law seems to pop up so frequently in life.
The difficulties of life do not occur because the planets are misaligned or because some cosmic force is conspiring against you.
Given the odds against us, what is remarkable is not that life has problems, but that we can solve them at all.
