Starting from 1st principles and general assumptions Newton's law of grav-

itation is shown to arise naturally and unavoidably in a theory in which space

is emergent through a holographic scenario. Gravity is explained as an entropic

force caused by changes in the information associated with the positions of ma-

terial bodies. A relativistic generalization of the presented arguments directly

leads to the Einstein equations. When space is emergent even Newton's law of

inertia needs to be explained. The equivalence principle leads us to conclude

that it is actually this law of inertia whose origin is entropic.

I personally beleive that entropy could very well be an underling component of all physical theories. All of physics deals with the behavior of a system relative to a set number of degrees of freedom. the Second law on the other hand tells about the number of degrees of freedom a system can possibly have. therefore it is a lower level physical law. So in some sense I feel like we might be able derive or evolve the other physical laws from special instances of the second law. This paper trys to do that with gravity it's interesting and readable but a little hand wavy.
