Why does time have a direction, great minds wonder

arroba Email

On a great cruise. Here’s a conference that investigates the nature of time:

his conference will bring together leading researchers across a wide range of fields within physics and cosmology, as well as from computer science, complex systems, biology, philosophy, and psychology. The participants will discuss a number of interrelated foundational questions related to the nature of time.

– How does time “flow”?

– Why does time have a direction?

– How does the universe evolve?

– What does it mean to record a memory?

– What does it mean to perform a computation?

– What happens as we think?

– How does complexity emerge?

– How do organisms age?

– How do species and genomes evolve?

All perfect thing for a cruise. You dock and who cares?

As to why God only allows a forward direction of time, it must be that there are 'timeless' consequences for actions performed within time by contingent beings that would threaten the structural, and logical integrity, of the contingent reality the contingent beings are based in. bornagain77

Perhaps time can be considered an artifact of a limited speed for light. I've also heard it suggested that entropy may indicate the arrow for time. material.infantacy

Is time a natural phenomenon? Mung
