Over billions of year we should be reduced to the lowest kinetic state. A billion years will let a rock roll down a hill, but it will not let it roll up - especially a fraction of an inch at a time.

A rock can come down. But that’s an isolated stored-energy release phenomenon. On the other hand, life systems thrive on energy poured out on them. On earth, the source is the sun, directly or indirectly. Now that can make things go up or down.
But look at the sun itself. It is certainly bound to lose energy over time, and with it, the systems that rely on it will cease activity too. The “rock” will at last, start to settle.
