Missing Chaos
Scalar electromagnetics also solves one of the greatest problems of quantum mechanics - that of the missing chaos. Since partial order is now infolded into the structure of the vacuum, quantum mechanics acquires an "already chaotic" basis. For an excellent lay discussion of the missing chaos problem, see Robert Pool, Quantum Chaos: Engima Wrapped in a Mystery, Science, 243(4893), Feb. 17, 1989, p. 893-895. For a more technical discussion, see P.V. Elyutin, The Quantum Chaos Problem, Sov. Phys. Usp. 31(7), July, 1988, p. 596-622. Bearden

"In fact under such a condition, the absence of the sun on one side, or the absence of water on the other, the magnetic or electric force would remain in a stable state of equilibrium, or the highest order of the chaotic." Keely and His Discoveries

Entropy has often been loosely associated with the amount of order, disorder, and/or chaos in a thermodynamic system. The traditional qualitative description of entropy is that it refers to changes in the status quo of the system and is a measure of "molecular disorder" and the amount of wasted energy in a dynamical energy transformation from one state or form to another. In this direction, several recent authors have derived exact entropy formulas to account for and measure disorder and order in atomic and molecular assemblies. One of the simpler entropy order / disorder formulas is that derived in 1984 by thermodynamic physicist Peter Landsberg, based on a combination of thermodynamics and information theory arguments. He argues that when constraints operate on a system, such that it is prevented from entering one or more of its possible or permitted states, as contrasted with its forbidden states, the measure of the total amount of “disorder” in the system is given by the first equation. Similarly, the total amount of "order" in the system is given by the second equation.

In which CD is the "disorder" capacity of the system, which is the entropy of the parts contained in the permitted ensemble, CI is the "information" capacity of the system, an expression similar to Shannon's channel capacity, and CO is the "order" capacity of the system.
