| intelligence does not violate entropy, it intentionally creates low entropy systems|
Or high entropy. The most important single human technology is fire. In a wood fire, humans release the pent-up energy contained in the wood fibers. This creates heat and light which quickly dissipate. But this quickly dissipating energy, the rapid increase in entropy, is the very reason people burn wood for fuel. It is the control of this process that implies intelligence, not its entropic characteristics. All processes increase entropy somewhere.
