    Sree, so you do believe in Guardian Angels, that give me hope.

    All the “evidence” you will ever find of non-human actors as beneficial agents will be anecdotal.  Conclusions about such experiences likely will be challenged.

    I suspect that few of those humans that have acted as guardian angels knew that’s what they were doing at the time.  Until you hear a voice that is not your own coming from your mouth or find yourself doing something you did not decide to do, you probably won’t believe that your body was being used for that purpose.  And those who have not had that experience will likely try to dissuade you from believing.

    Even the universe is not isolated, if one accepts that it has expanded and possibly is expanding or contracting.

    Expansion or contraction does not affect the total amount of energy.  It is only when energy leaves an isolated system we call it “loss of energy”.

    The total entropy of a system and its surroundings can remain constant in ideal cases where the system is in thermodynamic equilibrium, or is undergoing a (fictive) reversible process. In all processes that occur, including spontaneous processes,[2] the total entropy of the system and its surroundings increases and the process is irreversible in the thermodynamic sense. The increase in entropy accounts for the irreversibility of natural processes, and the asymmetry between future and past
