You are incorrect.

The laws of thermodynamics were stuffed up when they created the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears.

Big Daddy bear's porridge was too hot.
Mummy bear's porridge was to cold.
OK I can accept that.

However the little bowl with Baby bear's porridge was just right.

What nonsense.

I refused to tell my children that version of the story.
Refused to because of the laws of thermodynamics.
So my sentiments are with you completely.

However synergy is different.
It isn't about energy but about interactions and outcomes.
Sometimes quite complex interactions.

This is how i became interested in regression analysis.

Trying to think of an example....

Like how were one drug has this quantifiable effect and another has this quantifiable effect and the placebo has this quantifiable effect.
However if the two drugs are combined in a 4th group, and the effect is far greater than either of them alone, then that is synergy.

It is like an anti gestalt in a way, where normally the parts are greater than the whole, but in this case the whole is greater than the parts.

It is around us everywhere.

The laws of thermodynamics still stand.

Synergy is real and doesn't threaten any laws of physics at all.
However it is used as a buzzword and that is annoying as well.

Just saying.......
"Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read." Frank Zappa 1980
