One way of stating the second law of thermodynamics is to say that in any change in an isolated system the entropy increases. This applies to the material world. There disorder increases – because there are changes. But the material world cannot be seen as isolated system; it exists together with the spiritual world, and in this complete world disorder decreases and spiritual progress is achieved. Read more:
Here an announcement from Bertha Dudde and after that comments:
Growing and passing away
8. January 1942. B.D. NR. 2206.
Passing away is the lot of that what is visible to you, and nevertheless it cannot be called senseless and purposeless because transitoriness of every single work of creation is at the same time condition to the growth of new life. This is to be understood both spiritually as well as materially, because as soon as life escapes from its form, something new comes into being out of the outer form through union with other likewise dissolving outer forms, and the escaped spiritual enlivens again, increased in itself with similar mature spiritual, new outer forms, and therefore again and again new creations come into being, as soon as old creations seem to dissolve. Growing and passing away is the eternal succession, which aims at an everlasting ascent development. But growing and passing away only refers to what is visible to you – the spiritual held in it is everlasting; it remains existing until all eternity. Consequently all what is visible, matter, will certainly release the spiritual after a fixed time, but the spiritual itself seeks a new form, i.e. again earthly matter so long until it no longer needs such. Only then actual life starts, which never again stops, but lasts for ever. Throughout eternities lasts the succession of the spiritual through the form because for human ideas this time is so long that one can speak of eternity. And nevertheless it is only a fleeting moment in comparison to never ending eternity in the free state. All visible strives towards this free state; all what is free in comparison with it turns again towards the visible, i.e. towards the spiritual banished in it, and creates new possibilities for it to become free. Therefore the free spiritual lets visible creations come into being for the unfree spiritual, which the unfree spiritual has to overcome to get liberated out of it. To let such creations come into being is the activity of the spiritual, which uses the power out of God, in the state of perfection in the will equal to God, for the creation and enlivening of works of creation of most different kind. Therefore coming into being and passing away again depends on the free spiritual, but which lets that come into being, which is most useful for the spiritual, in love for the unfree spiritual and in deepest wisdom, as it corresponds to divine will. That is why the coming into being and the passing away of the visible works of creation will also show certain lawfulness, because deepest wisdom is then active and nothing what creation shows comes into being without a fixed plan or without sense and purpose. And that is why also a so methodical creation offers highest development possibilities to the immature spiritual; the passing away of the visible must be exactly as necessary and successful for the spiritual as the coming into being; the passing away must not mean an end of that what is, but only a change, because that what emerged from divine power of creation can no longer pass away, although it appears so to the human eye. Therefore only a constant change takes place of that what holds spiritual in itself, as also the spiritual changes constantly insofar as it increases in itself, by the spiritual, which escaped out of form, uniting with what is alike and for that reason also always needs new outer forms, in which it can reach the following degree of maturity, which again results in the union with equally mature spiritual. The seeming breaking-down of visible creations therefore means spiritual building up, i.e. union of spiritual power, and therefore the passing away of all visible is exactly as necessary as the coming into being of new creations. And no matter whether eternities pass in the meantime, through the love of the already free spiritual every development possibility is offered to the spiritual still banished, and therefore also this spiritual will be released some day and again stands by the unredeemed spiritual. And so long also the visible creation will exist, which constantly changes, because only through constant change is the further development of the spiritual possible. Growing and passing away. Without these there is no redemption. Because all what is unfree only then becomes free when it awakens to eternal life, when it has covered the course on earth through the creation, through permanent change of its outer form, through everlasting growing and passing away. Amen. B.D. NR. 2206
Now come comments:
We just read, "The seeming breaking-down of visible creations therefore means spiritual building up," and seeming breaking-down reminds of entropy.
Entropy is a measure of the disorder that exists in a system. But this disorder exists only then when the physical system is considered on its own. When we know that the physical system does not exist on its own, but that the spiritual system also exists, and that it is even the more important one, then we also know that there is no disorder, especially then when we have knowledge like this one, in this message from Bertha Dudde.
When we now take a more detailed definition of entropy then the connection between the two systems becomes even clearer. Entropy is a measure of the energy in a system or process that is unavailable to do work. When energy is unavailable in the one system, in the physical system, then it is available in the other system, the spiritual system.
When we now take an even more detailed definition of entropy then we have something like this:
Entropy, the name of a quantity in statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, and information theory representing, respectively, the degree of disorder in a physical system, the extent to which the energy in a system is available for doing work, the distribution of the energy of a system between different modes, or the uncertainty in a given item of knowledge.
So not only in mechanics, but also in thermodynamics does entropy exist. Here another definition:
One way of stating the second law of thermodynamics is to say that in any change in an isolated system the entropy increases. This increase in entropy represents the energy that is no longer available for doing work in that system.
And entropy even exists in information theory. Just two days ago we had 2012 Oct 19 – Answers of question through knowing beings on the other side and there it was also about information between these two systems, the physical system and the spiritual system.
In the physical world information might get lost, or parts of a packet of information might get lost, but in the spiritual world no information is misplaced or forgotten. Have a look at Book of life.
So in all three fields, in statistical mechanics, in thermodynamics and in information theory, we have the situation that there is an energy balance only then when both systems, the physical and the spiritual, are considered.
One does not work without the other, or rather more exact: the physical system does not work without the spiritual system. The spiritual system works very well without the physical system, but the physical system completely depends on the spiritual system, was created by it and cannot exist without it.
In any change in an isolated system the entropy increases. In the physical system entropy increases but when both systems are seen in combination, when the physical system is not seen in isolation, then there is no increase of entropy, but spiritual advancement.
Another aspect of this message coming to us via Bertha Dudde is the extinction of species. When we for instance think of rhinos dying out, being threatened by extinction, then this is certainly a problem, but it is actually only a revelation of the sad state of mankind, of the sad state of the mental state of humans.
The killing of the rhino is a particular good example of the increase of the depravity of men because it is killed for its horn which is used as an aphrodisiac, as something that arouses sexual desire, something that arouses or intensifies sexual desire. Depravity is a state of moral corruption, a morally corrupt or wicked act. It is the lust for sex, more generally for the things of the flesh, of matter, the desire for matter – in contrast to the desire for spiritual things.
But in reality only the body of the rhino can get killed. The soul is untouchable.
We have just read, "To let such creations come into being is the activity of the spiritual, which uses the power out of God, in the state of perfection in the will equal to God, for the creation and enlivening of works of creation of most different kind." And this means that new creatures are getting created, probably all the time. We hear about such new creations in the news. There might be creations which have never been before discovered, but there are also creations which have never before existed and are just that, new creations.
We have seen that one way of stating the second law of thermodynamics is to say that in any change in an isolated system the entropy increases. This applies to the material world. There disorder increases – because there are changes. But the material world cannot be seen as isolated system; it exists together with the spiritual world, and in this complete world disorder decreases and spiritual progress is achieved.
To consider one redemption period may result in disorder, there disorder may increase. But the totality of redemption periods results in a decrease of disorder; there exists spiritual progress.
