Tip #2 in my Secret To Staying Young For Zero Cost: Beware Of Entropy.

Every physical thing rises and falls.

Like the Roman Empire.

Like ghost towns fallen from their heyday.

Like us.

We’re firstly young then we get old.

And when we’re young we don’t think about old.

In today’s modern world we don’t want to think about old.

Until, one day, old arrives.

That’s entropy

So my Tip #2 is: don’t ever think old.

Always think you’re young.

Even if you think you’re getting old.

Always think young.

Always do young things.

Think young thoughts.

Be with young people.

Always thinking’

Keep the weeds out of your mind.

That’s my secret to cast entropy aside.

Now you know about it you can do something about it.

How hard can it be to always think you’re young.

Is this the new trend?

Is young the new old.

It’s also a law of physics.

Known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

So why don’t we know about this?

Why?

Why does our body get struck down with physical illnesses when we still have an active brain, a mind, a soul?

But entropy only cares about your body, not your mind or your soul.

Why must it be so.

So what if the only way to stop entropy is to intervene when we’re still young?

Has entropy always been a missing factor?

The elephant in the room.

We live in a time when we have knowledge and wisdom, or the source of, at our fingertips.

I mean the fingertips we use to search, or to chat, online for whatever we need.

In an instant.

Does wisdom come from having adventures and living a full life?

Today it’s easier to have adventures from where we are.

Adventures of the mind.

Staying young.

That shouldn’t stop us from living our adventure.

Do you ever think about living longer, or better, because of what you think?

About what’s in your mind?

Think about it.

Let’s tackle entropy right now.

Costs nothing.

Take care.

How Entropy Can Stop You From Ageing. Even At 30.

Entropy is a secret code word for eternal youth.

It’s also a law of physics.

Known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

So why don’t we know about this?

Every physical thing rises and falls.

Like the Roman Empire.

Like ghost towns fallen from their heyday.

Like us.

We’re firstly young then we’re old.

And when we’re young we don’t want to think about old.

In today’s modern world we don’t want to think about old.

Until, one day, old arrives.

That’s entropy.

Why?

Why does our body get struck down with physical illnesses when we still have an active brain, a mind, a soul?

But entropy only cares about your body, not your mind or your soul.

Why must it be so.

So what if the only way to stop entropy is to intervene when we’re still young?

Should our ever-ageing body be subject to an anti-ageing consciousness while time is still on our side?

And should we be consciously seeking wisdom at an early age so that, if and when entropy arrives, we still have a timeless mind to outlive our ageing bodies?

To outlive and conquer entropy?

Then, if we believe that our mind creates our reality, maybe we have a shot at expecting long life, even in a physical sense.

How else can we defeat, or delay, entropy?

Yes, living longer and better can be about what we eat

And looking after our body.

And other factors.

And then there’s entropy.

Do we ever think about entropy?

Could that be another key factor in growing old?

Or not.

Has entropy always been a missing factor?

The elephant in the room.

We live in a time when we have knowledge and wisdom, or the source of, at our fingertips.

I mean the fingertips we use to search, or to chat, online for whatever we need.

In an instant.

Does wisdom come from having adventures and living a full life?

Granted, today it’s easier to have adventures from where we are.

Adventures of the mind.

That shouldn’t stop us from living your adventure.

To be sure, living longer can be about what we eat.

It could be about taking care of our body.

Do you ever think about living longer, or better, because of what you think.

About what’s in your mind?

Think about it.

Let’s tackle entropy right now.

Take care.

Why Do We Age?

It’s called ‘entropy’.

Entropy explains the rise and fall of everything.

From The Roman Empire to you and me.

Maybe it’s a Law of the Universe.

It’s the Second Law of Thermodynamics in physics.

Everything rises and falls, ashes to ashes, have you noticed.

But does it need to?

How does it steal our age?

WHY DOES EVERYTHING NEED TO RISE AND FALL?

Why does everything that has been created need to fall into disarray?

Including you and me.

That’s a good question.

And the answer is: entropy.

“Entropy is a scientific concept as well as a measurable physical property that is most commonly associated with a state of disorder, randomness, or uncertainty.” (Wikipedia)

Rise and fall, ashes to ashes, ageing.

It’s a physical thing.

But then, perhaps there’s another quality that isn’t subject to entropy.

Our mind.

The mind only ages when our physical self tells it that we age.

The legacy of the Roman Empire is surely mind stuff, its art, its thought, its spirit.

Its ruins are only the physical part.

Its soul remains.

Forever.

IS THAT THE SECRET OF LONGEVITY?

For our mind to tell our body not to age.

Not the other way around.

Should we stop believing that we grow old when our mind is forever young?

To have our mind tell our body it’s not old.

Instead of our body telling us, you’re old.

IS THE ANSWER TO KEEP THINKING YOUNG?

Do The New Age & Physics Hold The Secret Of Eternal Youth?

Has the Age of Aquarius dawned and passed?

Is the New Age still about hippies and drugs?

Not any more.

I was there when it dawned in the ’60s and ’70s.

And the New Age of Aquarius still has over 2,000 to go.

So we’re still living at the dawning of a new age.

I want to update everything I know and everything I’ve learned about that astrological revolution.

It’s my first post in new ideas, and old ideas updated, in New Age thinking.

My New Age thinking.

I was a child of the New Age, the Age of Aquarius, going back 60 years.

And we got some of it wrong.

Now in 2022 I want to get it right.

Or more right.

Let’s start with doing something about our age.

CAN WE SLOW DOWN GROWING OLD AND STAYING HEALTHY?

Yes.

It’s called ‘entropy’.

What is entropy?

Entropy explains the rise and fall of everything.

From The Roman Empire to you and me.

If you like, it’s a Law of the Universe.

It’s the Second Law of Thermodynamics in physics.

Everything rises and falls, ashes to ashes, have you noticed.

But does it need to?

How does it steal our age?

It’s my first updated revised down-to-earth ‘New Age’ concept.

WHY DOES EVERYTHING NEED TO RISE AND FALL?

Why does everything that has been created need to fall into disarray?

Including you and me.

That’s a good question.

And the answer is: entropy.

“Entropy is a scientific concept as well as a measurable physical property that is most commonly associated with a state of disorder, randomness, or uncertainty.” (Wikipedia)

Rise and fall, ashes to ashes, ageing.

It’s a physical thing.

But then, there’s another quality that isn’t subject to entropy.

Our mind.

The mind only ages when our physical self tells it that we age.

The legacy of the Roman Empire is surely mind stuff, its art, its thought, its spirit.

Its ruins are only the physical part.

Its soul remains.

Forever.

MAYBE THAT’S THE SECRET OF LONGEVITY.

For our mind to tell our body not to age.

Not the other way around.

Let’s stop believing that we grow old when our mind is forever young.

Have your mind tell your body it’s not old.

Instead of our body telling us, you’re old.

KEEP THINKING YOUNG.

Why Do Other Things Change When You Just Change One Thing

I’m sure you have seen photos, even movies, of deserted homes or ghost towns and how they become overgrown in a short time.

What happens?

Yes, the people who have been holding back the overgrowth and the deterioration of the buildings have departed.

But then, that begs the question, why do we need to be constantly holding back change at all?

Why does change happen?

And why is that change usually unwanted?

Is that a matter of everything reverting back to a natural, uncontrolled form?

Is nothing permanent?

Well, no.

According to the Greek philosopher Plato, everything changes except the ‘real’ which is unchanging.

So what is ‘real’ then?

Which is the big philosophical question, to distinguish the ‘real’ from the ‘unreal’.

And is that why, when we move house, for example, things change and go wrong that we never expected to change or go wrong?

Are they the parts of our life that are not real, are impermanent, only held together by the item you decided to change?

Is everything in our lives being held in place by everything else?

Except for whatever is ‘real’.

So what is ‘real’?

What exactly is permanent?

George Harrison wrote that ‘All Things Must Pass’.

The Buddha said that “With our thoughts we make the world”.

Okay then, does that mean that everything in our lives is held together with our mind?

Except, that is, whatever in our lives, our thoughts, is ‘real’.

But they’re not likely to be physical objects.

So is karma real (Newton’s Third Law of Motion)?

Is entropy real (the Second Law of Thermodynamics), the idea that everything eventually falls apart?

How ironic that the very answer to the question of why things change is that things change (entropy).

It’s a Law of Physics.

And is the way to deal with the surprises of change the Buddhist idea of non-attachment?

That nothing is permanent?

What do you think?
