The entropy of a closed system increases monotonically with time, but in an open system some parts can become more ordered by taking advantage of energy flowing through the system. This is the thermodynamic foundation of life.

Chaos, I think of as the consequence of a system whose dynamic evolution cannot be predicted deterministically from initial conditions. Do you have a better definition? A fellow grad student, Eduardo Engel, wrote his thesis on the connection between chaos theory and randomness. It spoke to me.

Iā€™m looking forward to your posts!
