Looking at how awesome the world is, I marvel at its complexity, wrapped up in a form of unity. From my simplistic understanding, entropy is the theory that the universe is moving toward ever increasing chaos, to explain the perception of linear time. There is a lot more to it than that of course, but I would like to purpose an idea.
Yoga, as a practice, is meant to remove things from our consciousness in order to better perceive things as a unified whole. As we delve deeper into the inner workings of the mind, we identify predefined obstacles hindering our perception by using certain techniques. Yoga, as put forward in the Sutras, is a best a loosely defined process. You can comb through multiple interpretations as much as you would like, and I invite you to, to find examples of specific techniques. For instance, what Hatha Yoga poses are given in the Sutras? None that I have seen.
I have been practicing meditation twice a day for about ten years now. I have been through the gambit of multiple practices using different branches of Yoga, many of them claiming to be the best. FYI, none of them are, they are all just a means to an end.
So, as my spiritual practice has developed, it has become less complicated. My view of the world has changed dramatically in ways I did not even expect. So when I bring up my theory that Yoga is a form of reverse entropy, I mean it from a conscious, individual perception of things, and not from direct observation in the materialistic scientific sense.
Looking at the world through a clearer lens, I have notices that there is a subtle unity to everything. Not in that butterfly-my-fart-will-cause-a-hurricane-in-China sense, but that beyond our conscious perception, there is a fundamental, intuitive, underlying unity. Chaos seems to be a differing form of order. We see the chaos because we have a preconceived notion of what order is. Even our actions being perceived as good and evil are just part of that over all system. Without attachment to thought, time seems to slow down.
I find Rupert Sheldrake to be a fascinating person. I have not read his work beyond his "banned" Ted talk. He does raise some interesting points about modern materialistic science though. I feel it's always good to keep the door open for debate, even on the validity of Yoga. I'll keep doing it for now until I find something better.
