Why is the 'perpetual motion' impossible? Why can't a system function indefinitely in its fence? In 1850, Carnot and Clausius stated the second principle of thermodynamics. Since then we know that any energy - and what is not 'energy' in our universe? - is subjected to its inexorable degradation. A kind of 'original fault' in the very being of our world.
The degradation of energy is irreversible. By taking calorific form - required passage of any energy which is made 'useful' - energy can never return again in its first form. It loses part of its capacity to carry out work. This degradation is irreversible. That is to say concretely that a closed system, where energy is obliged to recycle itself so to speak 'in isolation', tends towards a thermal balance which means its death. This degradation is called 'entropy'. Entropy affects time with an sign of degradation, dispersion and death. Any effort of creation and development is paid in entropy. No system can be regenerated in its closing. The whole of our universe considered as a closed super-system goes gradually disorganizing itself until its inescapable death.
The specific human reality 'functions' like every thing alive in the logic of the opened systems, between an hot source and a cold well. Hot source of spiritual energy. Cold well of the negative gaping of the human one. Between the two, a great difference. Or a great indifference! There are also the accumulators of spiritual energy... quite charged or flat!
Although of another kind, the spiritual reality such as we can apprehend it, does not leave the womb of nature. It must thus be possible to apprehend its operation on the model of material realities.
Spiritual energy does not 'function' differently of just energy. The major reasons of its life and its death are to be found in entropy and no-entropy. The thermodynamic paradigm sheds light on it. Declines or rebirths. Tiredness or vitality. Degradation of spiritual energy. Indifference or going back to a common faith. Badly or well directed sensors. Empty or full tanks. Possible or impossible recycling. And so on. Vitality or revivals imply high spiritual energy and large dynamic no-entropy. Declines take the slope in the opposite direction.
The 'hot source' is facing the 'cold well' like fullness is facing emptiness. It is about no-entropy facing entropy. In fact they are dialectically antithetic concepts. The hot source exists only opposite a cold well. The cold well exists only opposite an hot source. You will have to clarify what is concretely this hot source and this cold well of the human spiritual energy.
The cold well of the sense, for instance, is not absolutely 'negative'. What would be the life of the spirit if there were no questions? And what would be a question which would not rest on an emptiness, in fact an emptiness of knowing, an ignorance? The dynamics of research and knowledge need as much emptiness as fullness. It does not go differently with the engine of the human action which would not turn without the desire. But what is basically desire if not a poverty calling a richness?
Tell me your cold well and I will tell you the force which lives in you. The 'hot source' remains sterile as long as it does not meet, opposite it, a 'cold well'. Because energy is child of the potential difference between the two.
Why does sense die? The answer is obvious. The sense dies when its energy is degraded for lack of potential difference. Very concretely, when the challenges are not taken up any more.
