The output of a spike is an estimate for the original story.

The World Wide Web is one application built using the internet.

We use the internet for lots of things like calls, emails, bank transactions etc.

Also to access the web through Browsers(Chrome, Firefox etc.)

The Web, on the other hand, is a collection of billions of pages of information that have been made using code.

If the Internet is a city, with streets, highways, cables connecting everything, then the buildings are the web.

Some buildings are libraries that store information, some are movie theatres where we watch entertainment. All of them are built with bricks, that would represent code.

Entropy is a measure of the disorder of the universe, at all levels.

Everything tends towards disorder. If you left something unattended it is way more likely it will tend towards chaos than organize and solve itself. Be it a relationship or a toilet.

Energy disolves, fruits rot, tasks accumulate. The human battles steadily to reduce entropy in every aspect of life, creates a structure to reduce friction and dissipation of energy.

The universe only moves towards a more entropic state, we can only aim for a a more stable one at least, efficiency to avoid entropy.

Time runs its way to an irreversibly more entropic state.
