Interesting blog post about a different view on entropy and the big bang. It seems like more and more people are warming up to the idea of a cyclical universe
Where does this leave us with the Second Law? Clearly when expressed a-la Clausius "The entropy of the universe can only increase" does not hold true. However, we can redefine the Second Law such that it does cover the observed bounce behavior:

"The entropy of the universe is a convex function of time."

What's this about a brownie in motion?
