But we KNOW that entropy is a thing. If the universe had no beginning, then how do we rationalize that with entropy, especially considering that it will result in an eventual heat-death of the universe?

I'm a musician, Jim, not a scientist, so maybe I'm just being completely idiotic and dumb, but I thought that was how we got to where we were - That there must have been a single point of intense energy that has since moved into many points of lesser energy, until we get to a point where nothing has enough energy to do anything (a schoolgirl definition, i know). Like, How does everything we know fit into this new model with an chronologically infinite universe?
