Dear Marco,

All the microscopic processes that you refer to as the end all of reality do not distinguish an arrow of time. That is, time can go forwards or backwards on the microscopic level.

So then how do you explain the fact that time only goes in one direction. That is a fundamental reality that is inconsistent with your notion that all reality as just microscopic processes.

Perhaps you do not regard entropy and its laws as emergent properties of a system. Well, entropy is not a microscopic property. Do you actually claim that entropy does not exist, that it is an abstraction due to our consciousness?

Do you see the flaw in your logic now.

Richard
