At the end we will have few definitive answers, but many notable implications for the way that we perceive our world on many different levels. For a jumping off point we start with the smallest example of randomness found in nature: the atom. The Second Law of Thermodynamics describes a system beginning with a large but already dissipated amount of energy coming from the breakdown of chemicals in the sun and ending when that energy disperses at the level of each tiny atom whose 'random' movement is propelled by that energy.(10) The study of Entropy is the study of the amounts of this energy being dispersed in a given process at a certain temperature. Although this is a founding law of nature, life does not rise from nature through entropy but through the blocking of entropy. While each particle carrying a potential amount of energy will unload that energy and spread it to as many other less energetic particles as possible, systems work to use the energy by creating boundaries and walls, both physical and chemical. (10) The human body presents us with a tangible example of this process in action. Still thinking about tiny particles dispersing their energy to other tiny particles, entropy can be observed in just about every human biological process as there is always energy flowing in or out of the body. The human body therefore exists as an open
