Possible or at least add a pinch of dynamic optimism to each. Problem is
that people are attracted to Entropy with doom and gloom. It's only bad
when they're experiencing it. People love to see disaster from a distance
but don't like it when the disaster is happening to them. This is the same
way humor works with people making fun of an individual but not liking it
when people make fun of them.
