There is, in time, and always will be, a dimension of degradation and dispersion. No organized thing, no organized being can escape degradation, disorganization, dispersion. No living thing can escape death. Perfumes evaporate, wines sour, mountains flatten, flowers wither, living things and suns return to dust.... All creation, all generation, all development, and even all information must be paid for in entropy. No system, no being can regenerate itself in isolation. 
(Edgar Morin)
