• The 2nd law of thermodynamics says that entropy of an isolated system will tend to increase over time. So how is it that the "system" called a human being doesn't become increasingly chaotic over time? Simple: a human being is NOT an "isolated system" -- a human being is intricately interconnected with its environment, including other humans, the food chain, the atmosphere, and ultimately the whole biosphere. Since a person is not an isolated system, the law simply doesn't apply.
