Entropy is an important indicator in physics of the passage of time. Briefly, time increase is usually matched by entropy increase. Is it possible that the Universe contains regions in which time runs in a direction opposite to ours? This exciting, but unlikely, possibility has been investigated by Schulman, L.S. (Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 5419–5422; 1999), who has studied the entropy of two interacting gases of particles with opposing arrows of time...
