    Entropy differs from most physical quantities by being a statistical quantity. Its major effect is to stimulate statistical systems to reach the most stable distribution that can exist in equilibrium. This driving force is interpreted in this book to be the physical origin of the “free will” in nature. Entropy definition is - a measure of the unavailable energy in a closed thermodynamic system that is also usually considered to be a measure of the system's disorder, that is a property of the system's state, and that varies directly with any reversible change in heat in the system and inversely with the temperature of the system; broadly: the degree of disorder or uncertainty in a system.
