Figuring Some Things Out

Probably something to do with entropy, but I’m not great at math

Some scientists believe that if you shine a star’s energy onto any clump of matter for long enough, eventually you’ll get a plant.The idea makes a lot of sense to me, and I think one could extrapolate to understand the creative process–and the desire to create–as a way that the universe sometimes needs to move some energy. Are the heights of human creative expression simply an outgrowth of the local universe’s need to barf its way from a low-entropy to a high-entropy state? Are all biological life forms just entropy-processing machines, and beauty and art merely side-effects that resulted from natural selection producing ever-more efficient entropy-processing machines? I have no idea, but it suggests a level of playfulness inherent in the physical universe that I find quite appealing.
