Entropy isn’t best described as a movement from an ordered system to a disordered one; however, it is best described as a universal progression from compacted ultra-high energy / ultra-intense heat at the very beginning of time, i.e. the Big Bang, to an ultimate end-of-time destiny of universally dispersed low energy which will be as close as possible to absolute zero. This will transpire long after complex matter and complex systems have ceased to be. The current outward expansion of the universe is essential to this process, which is why the process of entropy is always in a time-forward direction.
At the conclusion of time, there may well be no matter left. Widely dispersed, cold, pure energy is the lowest entropic condition and so will most likely be the end of our universe’s journey which began with the hot, compacted energy of the Big Bang.
For more on this, please see the section on Entropy.

I am a university college lecturer and a published author who takes great delight in speculating about the nature of reality through the use of logic and imagination, i.e. thought experiments.
I find it very difficult to accept some of the more lurid concepts in modern physics, e.g. the dysfunctional particle zoo at the heart of the Standard Model of the atom. Similarly, I remain unimpressed by the current definitions of dark energy and dark matter, neither of which have been identified. Furthermore, I also believe that the notion of a 'strong' and 'weak' nuclear force are entirely misleading. Personally, I consider all of the above elusive particles and mysterious forces to be more aligned to science fiction than science fact.
Therefore, I have created this website in order to offer a more rational, simplified and connected vision of our universe. All of my theories are logically consistent, and all questions about the nature of the universe are resolved - apart from the biggest question of all. Why does anything exist in the first place?
