I took Doug's point to be that life is NOT in conflict with the laws (?)
of entropy. I vaguely remember learning that while the organisms
themselves become less entropic (boy is that a weird word!), they make
their environment more entropic, so it balances out. This is
unquestionably true for my parakeet, who is terribly messy; saturniid
larvae are even worse. (I just wish whoever wrote these thermodynamic
rules would come clean up after them, but since they were men it's
probably unlikely. Also I think they are dead. Men *always* have some
