Physics – Arrow of Time Emerges in a Gravitational System
“Standard approaches to the arrow of time typically require a rare statistical fluctuation, or, often, the smuggling in of assumptions about initial conditions. Their work offers evidence that ordinary gravitational dynamics may itself be enough to produce the simple “initial” point that can give time a direction.”

  1. “I think I agree with all of these. Where can I get one of those?”

    Thank you for thinking so! In fact, I thought a lot of those points were specific to me, but I’m pleased how many people endorsed them. I may have a follow-up focusing on more specific examples.

    I’m not sure about “where can I get one of those”. I am going on thinking about it! I think partly, I can do better simply by being more focussed on what I want where I am. But I do hope to take positive steps to finding it. I can’t remember, where are you working now? How do you like it?


    1. Oops, forgot to reply to this.

      I think a some of your points are Less Wrong style Fun Theory things: you want challenge, so it’s not just a case of getting the maximum money for the least amount of work, instead, you want to maximise your values through friendship and poniesprogramming.

      I’m not going to name my employer on a public post, though (you never know who’s watching). Perhaps I’ll do something locked on LJ.
