As I understand it, Entropy, in Thermodynamics, is the tendency for heat to
move to cold, and all things to become equal. This fits your description

So now where does structure fit in? I would argue that structure is the
ultimate result of Entropy: the end leveling effect that makes everything
the same. Quite the opposite of whimsy...

Let's consider the opposite of Entropy: concentrations of matter into
clumps, concentrations of heat (such as the sun, or a black hole).
As the Universe progresses toward the entropy state, disorder and chaos
increase. Synonyms for whim or whimsy include caprice, vagary.
