Battling against entropy
The Wellcome Trust remind us that we are in a state of decline, descending into disorder, and that our world is doing likewise. Though the writer tries to make brave fun of it, the pessimism of such an attitude remains. I am reminded, however, that outside my window evidence of spring continues. A special thanks for victory over entropy goes to our robin then; he is singing as though the world was the most spectacular place.
