Perhaps you can't imagine it like the Greeks did, but the 'Second Law
of Thermodynamics' is being "violated" all the time; with the
aggregation, and buildup of radiation, heat and matter into planets;
suns, and stars: Which ultimately become so massive and hot that they
loose their stability so that their own angular momentum tears them
apart: Bursting them to smithereens; thereby creating new sources of
radiation; heat, and material debris, which radiates outward, and is
ultimately caught up in other, still growing planets, suns and stars,
where it gradually _sinks_ to their centers; where it is all re-crushed
by their tremendous internal pressure.
This aggregation and disaggregation is just one of natures many
repetitive cycles, and has been going on for all eternity: The Greeks
were among the first to realize this.
