I’m going to get into this topic a little later, but if you want to skip ahead to the second law, click here to scroll down to “Law 2: Conservation of Mass.
There are plenty of other laws that relate to the first law. This is the law of thermodynamics in the sense that we know how the mass of a substance to be measured has to be constant, and the laws of conservation of energy and momentum are the law of thermodynamics in the sense that the energy of a object in an unbalanced state is conserved and the momentum of a particle is conserved.
The second law is one that’s been around since the very first laws of thermodynamics. It’s a law that says that energy has to be conserved in a system or a process until it reaches a limiting point. If you’ve ever watched a video about the first law of thermodynamics, you know that almost all the stuff we’re talking about is in a state of thermodynamic equilibrium.
By the second law, the equilibrium state of a system can change in time. Most things in nature are in a state of thermodynamic equilibrium, but this doesn’t mean the system can remain in that state forever. It may just end up being changed by something else that affects the system. So the second law is a law of “what goes around comes around”.
If you’re on autopilot for so long that you don’t have any awareness of your actions, routines, impulses, and reactions, then you can’t keep track of your actions. But if you’re on autopilot and you don’t have any awareness of your actions, routines, impulses, and reactions, then you aren’t aware of them. This is one of the most common problems found in the science of physics.
So if youve been under a time loop, then you know what I mean. You might be aware that you were under a time loop, but you dont know about the loop. You might be aware of the loop, but you dont know what you were actually doing. You might be aware that you were on autopilot, but you didnt know about your actions. This is the only thing I know of that can cause a time loop to work.
The time looping law of physics is the first law of thermodynamics. So the first law of thermodynamics states that energy will ALWAYS flow from hotter to colder. But the first law of thermodynamics does NOT make any reference to time. So if youve been under a time loop, then you arent aware of the loop. But you know it! You might have a memory of events that came before the time loop, but you dont know what you were actually doing.
In this video, Dr. David Brewster of the University of Manchester talks about some of the physical laws that cause a time loop to work in the case of Dr. Brewster’s time loop. It’s an open forum, so feel free to ask questions.
So what you’re saying is that time is not a physical law, but an artificial one? Like an equation, like a mathematical equation? But this cannot be because time is not a physical law, it is simply an artificial one. Which means that the first law of thermodynamics isnt a physical law either. Its just a description, a model, a way of thinking about time like how we think about gravity.
In the case of gravity, like entropy, it is described by the energy of the system that determines its tendency to go up. In the case of thermodynamics, like entropy, it is described by the temperature of a system. So for Dr. Brewsters time loop, which can be thought of as Dr.
