Inverse Entropy

My '88 300e had a weird condition wherby the electrical system would pulse at a strange frequency, affecting lights, etc. I was slowly replacing bits and peices, fuses, checking wires, reading up on diy alternator removal, etc.

My son asked me to go fast on the highway, so i got it up to 200 kmh and sustained it until my fear of speeding ticket overtook my need for speed (im sure theres a formula there).

Interestingly, the "pulsing" condition has disappeared shortly after this speed thrill. Act of God? A car that fixes itself? Improves with use? I remember a French mathematician named Ilys Prigogene (and others) who speculated on how complex systems can "reverse" entropy, that they could 'auto-organize'. grow to higher level of complexity, etc...
