RE: Deep Lounge
Today I was considering the nature of wisdom, understanding, and knowledge (all layers of the same thing, with wisdom being cross-linking of different understandings, and understanding being cross-linking of different knowledge).

But on a universal scale what is such a thing as 'understanding'? It is simply the name of a structural formation: a small arrangement of matter, in the skull of a human, which is merely an extremely grainy reflection of the universe itself. Why would the universe contain grainy reflections of itself?

But aside from that, this would be a good explanation to the 'intelligent design' crew, who can't understand how such complicated things as life and the universe could be created by chance, instead of a 'higher power'. Your belief in such 'complication' could be inverted: the universe considers the structure in your head which comprises your understanding to be simple. Your understanding is merely an extremely grainy image of the real thing, and your idea that a 'higher power' created the universe is merely your understanding's expression of its graininess. 'Deities' and the 'supernatural' are merely the fuzziness around the pixels of an incomplete image.

I was also thinking about the left (and to a lesser extent religion) in relation to entropy. It is possible that the left and the far right (due to war etc) are two sides of an equilibrium that is anathema to the law that 'entropy always increases', and thus no matter how sound and stable a constitution may be, we are always destined towards the chaotic effects of degeneration (leftism) or war.

Coupled with the previous concept, this would create the following juxtaposition: images of the universe matching the universe itself ever more closely would go against the law of entropy. If anything, images of the universe should become ever more grainy. This would coincide with the reality-rejecting nature of both leftism and religion, whereby more detailed reflections of the universe are assailed by grainier ones.
