Entropy destroys (only) complex systems which fail to adapt.
Hence the dictum: "Adapt or die."
Physics (as an example of a complex adaptive system which generally adapts more perennially than the organisms that birthed it) might easily outrun cosmic entropy, if it can attain a Type I civilization (Michio Kaku's coinage) as its base before theistic politicos cause a holocaustal mass extinction.
Physics represents an extropic CAS which increases its power in proportion as it self-organizes complexity _in opposition to_ the process of entropy. In this regard, extropy correlates to life itself. No joke.
