There are various types of entropy. The 2 primary types are, gravitational entropy, and thermodynamic entropy, the latter being the second law of thermodynamics, the former is a theory at this time, and to my knowledge has not yet been proven.

Commonly, people think of, or define entropy as a movement to the lowest state, in other words, a decline, or degradation of something.

Thermodynamic entropy, as it relates to the cosmos, has to do with all energy seeking a state of equiequilibrium, to put it simply.
