This is a really good question deserving of a really good explanation.
What is Quality? How does it relate to Entropy?
Quality is a balance between Order and Chaos. To understand it you need to go to the extremes at each end and see what those extremes entail.
At one end you have order. Perfect order would be the extreme. The most perfect order possible is One. That would be AUO.
At the other end, from your perspective, is the complete unknown of chaos. From your perspective, the most extreme chaos is everything else that is unknown, which appears to be AUM.
In between these two points is you and your awareness. Also, in between these two is the possibility of imperfect order and apparent chaotic existence. That would be you and me! As our understanding of our selves increases, we gain more awareness of the order within the apparent chaos. This increase in knowledge is an increase in understanding of the complexity of that internal order. The greater the understanding of the complexity of the order within ourselves, the greater the understanding of the larger and now less unknown "chaos" of AUM.
High quality understanding is understanding of higher orders of being, larger complex systems of being. This understanding is the awareness of the order within what at first appeared to be chaos. The better the understanding of the more complex system, the greater the decrease in entropy. Operation of will and intent within this understanding requires less work, less energy.
Think of it as driving a car. If you are a very good driver, then you can drive the car more efficiently than a not so good driver. The increase in knowledge of the complexity of the machine, allows you to make use of it in ways that a poor driver could not. This is an example of higher quality of consciousness.
All of the being between AUO and AUM is ordered in some way. The goal ultimately is for AUO to learn of it's own complexity internally, and become AUM. You are helping in that goal by experiencing complex being as You, and learning from it. You are constantly becoming You, and AUO is constantly becoming AUM. The appearance of chaos is an illusion of unknowing. Evil is what you get when chaos is intended. Good is what you get when self awareness reveals internal order. Evil is what you get when you give away your will and choose the default, no will. Evil is what you get when you give in to chaos, rather than wilfully bring order to your self from within.
The order of self is spontaneous, not created from outside yourself. As you increase your internal order and solidify your understanding, you have no need for order imposed from outside your self.
As more people gain in QOC and interact, new levels of order spontaneously arise in the systems of people. Families, Nations, Globally, all of these systems increase in quality as the externally imposed order is replaced with the more efficient internal order and understanding.
When you say,"There ought to be a law!" you are intending externally imposed order, and consequently increased entropy by default.
When you say,"I should not do that, or I should do this differently", you are willing and intending internal order of self and lowering your entropy.
How much QOC can any one get from forced order? 0%
How much QOC can any one get from internal understanding of order? 100%
The default, when you have no will of your own to do otherwise, is to gravitate back to perfect order and zero complexity. The undoing of complex order is the Evil that you must embrace along the way, by default. I prefer free will and personal growth.
Any time you learn something that expands your ability and your awareness, you are increasing the QOC of your being.
Any time you initiate the use of force against the will of another, you are decreasing your entropy and your QOC.
Look at the political landscape. Where is there an increase in QOC? Is it in reform? Is it in war? Is it in regulation? Or is it in people doing better for themselves? Expand your understanding and examine what is happening around you. Look at where force is used and what effect it has on the will and intent and being of others. What actions are lowing entropy and what actions are increasing it?
Look at the dynamics in your own family or local community. Where is there an increase in QOC? Is it in imposing restrictions? Is it in yelling at your kids? Is it in getting dinner on time? Or is it in allowing the others within the group to do the right thing and showing them what that is? Is it a locked door because of an error? Or is it a talk about what that error is and what to do next time?
Ultimately, for you, there is only one point of view for your understanding, and that is your self. All larger systems of human beings are either imposed by other human beings or are spontaneous. Which ones lower entropy? Which ones do not initiate use force? What do you allow to happen to yourself or others by default? How does that affect your QOC? Evil happens either by force or by a complete lack of will to do otherwise. Evil is the lowering of QOC. Good is the raising of QOC. There is no trade off. There is no gain to the greater good through any initial use of force against even one other human being. There is no gain by submission to the defaults. There is only gain in the exercise of will and intent without initial use of force. You can defend against an initial action. You cannot initiate the action against. You cannot concede to initial action by others and escape blame. You cannot impose action on another through complex association and escape blame. How do you justify the actions of those who act for you? How is that not you? How can any one benefit by force? What are you doing and what are others doing for you? To you? With you? On your behalf? By default?
Tough questions to answer. Even tougher to come to grips with the answers! That is why we are here. The better our answers, the lower the entropy and the greater the QOC.
