    What a fine cloth I am wearing!

    The thread has been woven on a spinning wheel of eight spokes.
    The pattern is made with five elements and three attributes
    My lord pressed the threads tight and made it strong.
    He spent nine months in weaving this fine piece of cloth.

    Every living being wears it, and doesn’t know the worth.
    They soil it with use and never wash.

    Kabir says, I wear it with a great care and eventually will return it- as clean as it was.

    does he now? he must wear it in a universe devoid of entropy. even if its something nonphysical like belief.
    or perhaps even our own life as we think we know it, itself.
    of course, any existence beyond the physical IS in some sense in such an other universe.

    is it possible to grow without at the same time wearing down, anything, no matter how "pure"ly one lives?

    I am not clear on this. Will you please elaborate?

    My impression is- Entropy is a measure of disorder, and the entropy of
    the universe is constantly increasing. (And then again, theoretically, it has to reach a state of equilibrium)

    How does it co relate with above post, I am unable to grasp.
