When my room is more organized, my brain feels more
organized as well.  Advances in fMRI may show whether
it is in fact so (in that, say, fewer random messages
are fired off, or tasks can follow a straighter line
from conception to action).  Certainly a more
organized room offers fewer distractions.  It may
also be related to a to-do item that no longer
clutters up the brain or to-do list.  Those things
seem like decreases in entropy to me.
