Brief Proposal: Entropy

Definitons of Entropy according to the Oxford American Dictionary:

"The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue"
-Antisthenes (Greek philospher, disciple of Socrates, 445-365 b.c.)

The purpose of this brief is to explore what influence the concept of entropy has on affecting our ability to unlearn. How can a gradual decline into disorder, or unpredicatability, give dimension to our ideas of learning in the form of an artifact? Can unlearning help us to learn?

Great one! Will think over a bit and add on if I have any other sources from which we can enhance the brief :)
