Are all arrows of time special cases of the thermodynamic one?

    Are all arrows of time special cases of the thermodynamic one? The arrows of time I am referring to are the psychological arrow of time and the cosmological arrow of time. Thanks.

    In short, the psychological arrow of time is a consequence of the thermodynamic one. The cosmological arrow of time isn't.
