Negative Entropy 3

 
The new Rose Center in New York, the new Chabot Science Center in Oakland,
the new Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, and the new California Academy of
Sciences in San Francisco were all built up in the Big Bang Era. They all have the Big
Bang built in.
 
But if really the Universe were running on a Big Bang model, it would be of no
use to breathe. There would be no negative entropy available.
 
In the Big Bang model the Universe has been running down toward "heat death"
for the last thirteen billion years. If that were really the case, could we still fly a 747
across the Pacific? Where would we get the negative entropy?
 
We need a better model.
