I'd say it is even stranger: the process of entropy production - change -
is "eye less" but somehow "aware of itself". Without prescience it "knows"
or "senses" that it can produce - or perhaps is procreate more appropriate
- itself "better", "faster" by creating order. So we - watchfull beings -
are "victims" of an outrageous fortune: the order created by entropy
production has become "aware of itself". It took sometime (a billion
years) to reach this conclusion, because entropy forgot to create a manual
too. Or perhaps we came into being to create that manual and speed things

What shall we do: stop this ridiculous process of creating entropy faster
and faster by destroying this world? Or support it and keep on making more
and more ordered systems, like Learning Organisations?
