If so then time's arrow, that is to say time's asymmetry, is not the result
of the fundamental laws of physics but is a statistical effect that could
not be otherwise due to the nature of the initial conditions and the fact
that there are just more ways to be disorganized than organized.

And I have said exactly that approximately 6.02 * 10^23 times.
