Evolution and Entropy

Category:  Deepak Quotes

Each of us caught in between two forces that contend for our personal future, the force of evolution, which extends life longer and longer, and the force of entropy, which causes physicalthins to decay over time.
Evolution and Entropy

Top comments

  • Evolution is both growth and decay!

    The Emotion Machine // 2012-12-19 15:04:33 // //
  • When one grows older (at least in my humble experience) one starts to more and more understand the relativity of one`s experiences and how they all lead one to a more simplistic vision of life because, when with ageing responsibility in life grows smaller, one becomes less responsible for ones surroundings and more responsible for what happens right here right now. I still do believe that we experience all those different stages in our life step by step. So the above quote has simply not been totally understood yet by those who study it. Alzheimer`s disease is still a riddle. Becoming simpler does not necessarily lead to Alzheimer. Am belonging to the first generation who will grow older and has to find it all out by herself growing along with medical science. I only hope that we are given a decent way to die and that doctors will not keep us alife at all cost.........

  • I think what Deepak is saying is that he believes that separation and extreme differences are what life is contending for. Pretty topical and superficial approach. Life and death, or evolution and entropy are not separate functions of life. They're inseparable, so why the need to focus on separation rather than togetherness? Get it back together man!

  • Deepak Chopra, would you explain, please. Thank you.

  • Mr. Chopra, What if I said I found away to slow Entropy profoundly, maybe even stop it in its track's. Also the term Evolution, isn't that just a nicer way of saying Naturally Occurring Genetic Mutation? Thank you - Anthony :-)

  • He needs to take some physics lessons.

  • funny quote

    Anoop Sharma // 2013-02-10 07:22:02 // //
  • Just try to keep calm,try to push fear out,let all anger and wants out,& stop wondering what is next.Love people the way they are,listen but not lose your voice,& let life take its own course.MHO.

    Helen Pataki // 2013-02-10 05:01:21 // //
  • I'm going for Evolution

    Nancy Jeanne Prohaska Thompson // 2013-02-10 04:16:10 // //
  • Physical decay occurs as does metaphysical decay. The parts of the mind that are no longer necessary decay and become energy for parts of the mind that are necessary and important for evolution. Decay in one area encourages growth in another. The aspects of my mind that allowed me to be quick to anger decay and become fertilizer that for the aspects that allow me to be quick to joy. My mental crops become more nutritional for my physical body and more nutritional for the world around me.

    Joshua Cantrell // 2013-02-10 03:46:01 // //
  • If you build a house on sand and a house on rock and a storm comes, which one do you think will stand? There are many who dont stand for anything solid and it then becomes easy to fall for anything.

    S van Schoor // 2013-02-10 03:38:39 // //
  • I love all your quotes Mr. Chopra!

    Melba Cardenas Castillo // 2013-02-10 01:58:13 // //
  • I refuse to be caught between a law and a theory. They are not equal forces and so I can ignore the weaker one.

  • We are conscious of these two forces... LIFE decide its own fate though....It creates, us.... It sustains/maintains, us....to create, us....to sustain/maintain, US....We're able to come in and out of this cycle....only to some extent of our own consciousness.....

    Norman Échavarria // 2012-12-19 16:21:50 // //
  • Reading it as we speak :)

    Caroline van der Stokker // 2012-12-19 16:17:08 // //

    Michele Kohse // 2012-12-19 15:44:56 // //
  • "cada uno de nosotros está atrapado entre dos fuerzas que compiten por nuestro futuro personal, la fuerza de la evolución, que extiende la vida útil más larga y más larga, y la fuerza de la entropía, lo que hace que las cosas físicas a decaer con el tiempo"

    Gsus Quineche Carreño // 2012-12-19 15:33:27 // //
  • But you must not leave out the aspect of the miraculous - the existence of God and His affect on our lives....

    Jenny Lalov // 2012-12-19 15:15:58 // //
  • Evolution is both growth and decay!
