Are the Laws of Nature Time Reversal Symmetric? The Arrow of Time, or Better: The Arrow of Directional Processes

Paul Weingartner

Abstract


The paper discusses time reversibility (“arrow of time“) and shows that (i) it is not satisfied on the microlevel (ii) it should be more realistically replaced by very improbable recurrence (iii) the “arrow” is in process not in time.
