Time might flow backwards as well as forwards from the big bang

Time might flow backwards as well as forwards from the big bang | Science and Technology | Scoop.it
In the multiverse, pocket universes could be born with clashing directions of time – the evolving future of one could happen in the rewinding past of another
Sue Searle's insight:

In the absence of other laws to set the direction of time, physicists have settled on entropy – basically, a measure of messiness. As entropy grows, time ticks forward. For example, you can stir milk into coffee but you can’t stir it back out again – so neatly separated black coffee and milk always comes first.

We can’t proceed if the big bang was indeed the beginning of time, but in that case, why did it have such low entropy? And if it wasn’t the beginning of time – as Guth suspects – we’d still want to know how an eternal universe could have reached such a low-entropy state that would allow for the arrow of time to form.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 12, 2015 3:48 PM

Don Purdum makes an excellent point in this video, reacting to the fact ScoialMediaExaminer, an awesome online publication with great valuable content, lost their Facebook page for a while. 

 

You can't put all your content eggs in the same basket, ie a Facebook page you don't own.

 

We started to make this point a while ago and advocated using a content hub to host even your social media content. If you don't believe a blog or a website is needed, this video and the SocialMediaExaminer scary hickup should convince you. This is where you should host your content. 

 

But even if you do already, think about all your social posts such as your images or your witty tweets and commentary such as the one I'm making right now: they also deserve a long lasting life, be archived and help your SEO.

 

If you're thinking about building your content hub, here's a great ebook by Barry Feldman on that topic.
