Container Information Theory, Brownian Motion

"Interesting questions to ask: is it 100 percent random or do we know some of the information and probability, therefore it is not completely random.. and can we use this information that is not random in order to exploit the second law of thermodynamics or further understand entropy, information and Shannon's theories?"

Every time a brownian motion object is collided and moves, in this container it has a higher chance of being near the top and bottom walls than the left and right walls. Although this seems trivial, it is important for understanding how to increase the probability of interacting with a chaotic random object in a constrained container.

The probability of the object in the container coming into contact with the left and right side of the container is low since it is far away from those sides. The probability of the object coming into contact with the top and bottom is high since it is close to those edges at all times. Changing the lengths of each side of the container changes the probability. If the microscopic object presses a momentary bit switch (imaginary) which is on or off whenever it comes near a container wall, the switches which are fired the most will be the top and bottom switches if we consider each entire side (wall) of the container a long switch.

When a chaotic random object has a field, such as a nano magnet or microscopic magnet, those fields can interact with walls that react to the fields (i.e. eddy currents in aluminum, or responsive magnets in another container). If we increase the probability of interaction with the walls (container sides), we can increase the drag time on the microscopic object and potentially cool the fluid if it is possible to do so and this may send information out of the container.

The switches shown are not actual switches but are simply imaginary to show how some information is generated in a container. The switches are just virtual information that the brownian container can generate if humans wish to see it that way in order to find out information about the sy stem. I'm not suggesting there are actual bit switches in containers or brownian motion systems, although a nutty string theorist or quantum mechanic might suggest that this container is a computer program. Interesting questions to ask: is it 100 percent random or do we know some of the information and probability, therefore it is not completely random.. and can we use this information that is not random in order to exploit the second law of thermodynamics or further understand entropy, information and Shannon's theories?
