This image is a rendition by the artist of a group of lost glass pebbles found in the bottom of a deep vase. The photograph was digitally manipulated in order to highlight the beauty of the captured image with its variations of lights and shades. In total, there are fourty-five pebbles and amazingly they spontaneously took the arrangement in which they are seen in the image. As entropy is an expression of disorder and randomness, I think, that the spectacular high arrangement of the fourty-five glass pebbles inside the vase, positioned themselves in an anti-entropic fashion.
Entropy is the second law of thermodynamics, which states that the entropy or order of the universe is always increasing. However, we know that our God is a God of order, thus this law, while a reality in the present universe, will not be present in eternity. Interestingly, the problem of explaining the order seen in the image has been also associated to all life forms. Order is a characteristic of life and God is life. Erwin Schrodinger, a famous Austrian Nobel Laureate in physics introduced a popular concept in his 1944 popular-science book "What is Life?", that explains the conundrums of order in life, in the universe, and in our image. The theory is called negative entropy or syntropy stating that a system may exports its entropy to keep its own entropy low.
