: Effective entropy cannot necessarily increase without bound. Forget phase space definitions and just think of a container of gas, or consider the heat death that will eventually occur if the universe is open.

Please explain how it is not possible for another BB to come after a big crunch; ie from entropy considerations. Isn't entropy relative in this consideration? Penrose suggests that the 2nd law of TD would not exist in a Universe evolving from a big crunch (which has high entropy).
