Hi there, I'm a chemist! I know you mention order/disorder falling out of fashion in thermodynamic circles, and want to add another perspective. The only thing I remember from my statistical thermodynamics course is that entropy is not disorder, but possible states.

So the universe tends towards more possibilities. Which, when you're trying to control and/or predict everything, yeah, it can be "disordered". But I do think it's kinda beautiful.
