Recently, usage of “spreading of energy” as a metaphor for entropy seems to be in vogue. As we shall see throughout the book, both disorder and the spreading metaphors have some merits in describing what goes on in the system. However, none can be used to deﬁne or even to describe precisely what entropy is. It seems to me that there exists some confusion in the literature, between a description of what happens in a spontaneous process on the one hand, and the meaning of entropy on the other hand.
Fig. 7 to make sure we did not miss any possible result and that we did not count any speciﬁc result more than once. When we choose the sum of the outcome we do not care about the speciﬁc number on a speciﬁc die. All we care about is that the sum of the outcomes will be a number between 2 and 12. For instance, the event: “the sum of the outcomes is 4” does not specify which number is on which die. In order to obtain this event we need to collect all the outcomes in Fig. 7 into groups. In each group the sum of the outcomes is the same.
