This is a Video on the Clockwork Universe within an artist theory on the physics of time as a physical process.
The Clockwork Universe Theory is based on the classical physics of Newton and compares the universe to a mechanical clock continuously ticking along, as a perfect machine, with its gears governed by the laws of physics, making every single aspect of the machine completely predictable.
The problem with the idea of a clockwork universe running like a perfect machine is that there is no explanation for Sod’s Law or Murphy Law the idea that ("Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong").
This might sound mad but to have something go wrong for someone you need individuality and uncertainty and what we could call statistical probability.
There is also no concept of free will in the clockwork universe theory and it gives us no reason for the second law of thermodynamics why the total entropy or disorganisation of any isolated system tends to increase statically over time.
The video above takes the classical physics of Newton and the uncertainty of quantum physics and combines them with Einstein’s relativity too explain a process that gives us a reason for the second law of thermodynamics and the reality and uncertainty of our everyday life.
This is a universal process from the largest planet spinning around a star to the smallest living cells; everything forms its own ref-frame by slowing down the rate that time flows (time dilation) relative to its own energy, mass and momentum.
All we need now is an explanation for the uncertainty of life and for this we have to look at the physics of quantum mechanics.
Many people say that the probability function Ψ is just a mathematical function showing us that we cannot measure position and momentum at the same time.
This might be true if there was just one probability function Ψ but there is a probability function for every reference frame for every possibility for every experiment.
We have the electrons as clouds of statistical probability around each atom and light radiating out as waves of probability forming the uncertainty of life.
Because we cannot achieve absolute zero everything and everyone is radiating electromagnetic waves continuously therefore this process is universal and continuous. We measure this process of continuous energy exchange as ‘time’
Light will radiate out in every direction forming a sphere and because a sphere has the greatest symmetry or organisation it will have the lowest entropy for the continuous increase in entropy that we see in the second law of thermodynamics. Photon energy will cascade down forming greater degrees of freedom for statistical entropy!
Any action or movement taken in the classical world of our everyday life will have to start with the smallest unit of energy the photon of quantum mechanics.
Therefore it is logical that classical physics is an approximation of quantum physics or that classical physics with the uncertainty of everyday life is based on quantum physics.
Therefore Sod’s Law or Murphy Law the idea that ("Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong") is illogical because everything is based on statistical probability.
