I'd like to start a discussion about negative entropy. Consider the idea of the arc of history bending to a positive resolution.

Alexander the Great conquered large portions of Europe and Asia. At the time, being conquered was a disaster, but centuries later it provided languages with a unified basis. So negative entropy has a component of duration. This can be seen as moving to a global optima.

I am interested in the levels of the Ackermann function for modeling non-local optima.

Do folks have other examples demonstrating negative entropy and it's principles?
