This is the only law of life: you will surrender whether you like it or not. So make sure that you get introduced before it is too late.

“You are scared of dying — and tell me, is the kind of life you lead really any different than being dead?.”

Seneca

The only law I am referring to is quite simple. And we might find some quantum brigands that already broke it.

First, I would like to share with you a short story.

The tale of the 2 most important days in our life.

I am sitting there, looking far away.

Dad, what are the 2 most important days in your life?” asked Noah-Ali.

Only 2? That is quite a difficult pick.”, I replied. “Let me think about it…

No, Dad, you have to answer right away. Only 2 days, that is quite easy.”, said Elijah-Omar, the little one.

Come on, sons!. There are the days of your birth, the day I married your mother. I am not even talking about the days you will get married if you want or when you will be blessed with your kids. I cannot choose. Sorry!”, I replied with a smile on my face.

Maybe it is not the days for you to choose; maybe it is the days when you were chosen!” replied Elijah.

What the heck are you talking about, son?”, I replied, baffled entirely.

Well, in your whole life, there are only 2 days that last less than 24 hours for you! Obviously!”, said Noah.

Huh? I think I need more explanation. Can you elaborate, Noah?

Well, there is the day you were born, Dad, you missed some hours before.”, interjected Elijah.

And there is the day you will die, you will never complete that day.”, added Noah.

A drop of tear hit the floor. “Don’t cry, Dad, it is Ok!” said Noah while Elijah rushed to hug me in his arms.

These are tears of joy, son!” and we all hugged each other.

We have no power over how incomplete those 2 days will be. However, we have control over the interval between those 2 days.

We can make it empty or full of meaning and memories.

That interval is a one-way street, the street of time.

No human who ever walked on Earth has reversed the path of time so far. The reason is quite simple.

The second law of thermodynamics, the law of order for the chaos in the universe.

The second law of thermodynamics establishes the concept of entropy as a physical property of a thermodynamic system. […] An increase in entropy accounts for the irreversibility of natural processes, often referred to in the concept of the arrow of time.[2]

Source: Wikipedia

Entropy is the measure of “the disorder” of the universe. And basically, most of the things happening in my life, in your life, and in the universe are irreversible, thanks to this second law of thermodynamics.

That irreversibility makes us grow old, makes the universe expand, and is the root cause of all the messy desks in the world.

Want to know more about entropy?

I encourage you to watch the following video: Entropy: The Heat Death of The Universe

We are all dying, even the Sun and all the stars out there, be it the ones in our small screens or the ones in the infinity game of the Milky Way and beyond.

Do I need to do something about it?

Yes, if I can transform myself into a time crystal.

Time Crystals, the heist of Time!

Recently Google said that they created a time crystal thanks to their quantum computer.

What is a time crystal, and why should I transform myself into one?

In practice, that works something like this. You create a crystal whose atoms start in one state. If you blast that crystal with a finely tuned laser, those atoms might flip into another state — and then flip back — and then flip again — and so forth, all without actually absorbing any energy from the laser.

If you step back, what you’ve just created is a state of matter that’s perpetually in motion, indefinitely, without taking in any energy.

That’s no small feat. It beats against one of classical physics’ most sacred tenets: the second law of thermodynamics. That law states that the amount of entropy, or disorder, always tends to increase. Think of it like a vase, teetering at the edge of a table. The universe wants to push that vase over and make it shatter across the floor. To piece it back together, you have to put in the energy.

Source: What the heck is a time crystal, and why are physicists obsessed with them?

Maybe in some distant time in the future, scientists will unlock the secret to the mass production of time crystals.

In the meantime, we have no way to cheat death or reverse the arrow of Time.

I know that the current richest man on Earth, Jeff Bezos, is trying.

We must not see the second law of thermodynamics as a fatality. On the contrary, we might thank it for our existence in the first place.

Like everything in life on which we have no control, acceptance is the way of wise people.

Irreversibly we are on the journey of that second incomplete day in our life. Yet, as we know, there is no way to go back. We must embrace the motion forward.

We need to make sure that we complement those 2 incomplete days with full stacked days in between.

Each day, we need to fill our mornings with meaning. If we reach midday, we need to have as many experiences as possible in the afternoon.

If we are lucky to witness the sunset that day, we have to enjoy the rest of the evening surrounded by our loved ones in any shape or form.

If we open our eyes to see another sunrise, we need to rise with a smile and repeat the process.

How complete is your life?

Are you aware of your entropy?

Are you ready for that incomplete day?
