One definition of the word ‘entropy’ goes as follows: “the degradation of matter and energy in the universe to a state of final uniformity.”
Sometimes, that is hard to imagine. It seems that the ocean and land are always battling. As soon as the ocean gains ground by bashing the land with relentless, scouring waves, another large earthquake happens and the ground rises above the sea, using sediments pulled and scraped up from the seafloor. [At least, here it does in places]
This battle is continued inland to the rivers and rocks. Winter rains will swell the rivers into torrents capable of tumbling boulders downstream, pushing them closer to the ocean.
As hard as it is to imagine, it is possible our Earth could end up covered in a thin layer of water over a smooth surface of land until all the water evaporates from our atmosphere [the Moon, since it is moving away from us, would no longer influence tides]. Or the Sun will get on with the next phase of its life and become a red giant, overriding the debate between water and land so neither has the last say. Good thing, it’s hard choosing sides!
