What’s going on when time passes? That depends on who you ask, but the passage of time is still a pretty big mystery. For people, time flows in what seems like one direction: from the past and into the future. Physicists generally explain this as time flowing from lower into higher entropy, or disorder. Instead, Vaccaro believes entropy might result from time, not the other way around. New Atlas’s Michael Irving reports: “[Vaccaro] uses the analogy of a tree blowing in the wind—while the leaves (entropy) may appear to be shaking the tree, they aren’t responsible for the motion themselves, but are the result of another force (wind). In this new theory, the ‘wind’ is created by time reversal symmetry violations (T violations)… (READ MORE)
