IGUS = Information Gathering and Utilizing System. The future course of humanity is probably guided by maximum entropy principle. This is that systems will proceed to maximum entropy in minimal time. This is not that controversial for closed systems. Open systems tend to avoid this by being open to energy sources and by having a reservoir to dump waste heat or entropy. Life is of this nature, where every species exists in a network with other species that provide negative feed backs which prevent them from consuming everything, taking all possible energy and resource stocks and eventually leaving a wreck behind. However, we humans have large brains that permit us to eliminate negative feed backs and to increase positive feedbacks. This probably started with Homo erectus that learned to use fire and to chip stones into tools. They took themselves off the menu and put more living things on their menu. In doing this we are consuming the biological energy and biomass stocks at a faster rate than they can be replenished. The system is starting to approximate a closed thermodynamics system.
