    That is what I imply ! But my catch is to say that the process from less complex to more complex is an evolutionary adaptation, not a physical law of nature ! The notion of tendency leads to a somewhat obscure path of goal- intented behavior, where IMO there is none. Tendency is religious related, dependent of an unknown force... I don 't like that ! But that wasn 't the thing you said I suppose !
