Maybe, maybe not.
When it comes to hard science (and I assume that if it's a law it's rather fundamental,
and thus grounded in some heavy scientific reasoning) I generally try to sidestep
it by metaphor. It's a well known tactic - elegantly cover up the fact that you
don't really know what you're talking about by seeming to have something profound
to say. Just last month I noted that quantum physics
can't be used to explain the larger-than-atomic sized world we inhabit, but that
this doesn't seem to stop numerous people from trying to do just that, and here
I am now, perhaps joining the club I poked fun at.
Be that as it may, there's a certain linearity to the logic that leads me to claim
that making sense and the second law of thermodynamics can actually be seen as
opposite sides of the same coin.
