The fact that you never reference your wild claims betrays a deep-rooted ignorance. We all know this, but it's fun to play along, anyway...

"...the increase of entropy defines a direction in time. 'The future' is the direction in which entropy increases. This would not be so mysterious if, according Newtonian mechanics, it did not seem impossible... If the atoms in an egg or a lump of coal obey Newtonian mechanics, then they do not distinguish time forward from time backward. Yet... nature is irreversible. How can we reconcile (entropy) with Newtonain mechanics?"

-- Tony Rothman, Ph.D. Harvard College Observatory, & Bennington College

Now, Alex, give us a reference, besides "I am Russian scientist."

I suspect you can't. As usual.
