A recent Letter by Maccone presents a solution to the arrow-of-time dilemma based on existing laws of quantum mechanics. He argues that all phenomena where the entropy decreases must not leave any information (in the observer's memory) of their having happened, the observer being a part of the whole system. He concludes that quantum mechanics is necessary to his argument, which he thinks does not otherwise work in classical mechanics. This Comment and the previously published Comment of…

The Universal Arrow of Time is a Key for the Solution of the Basic Physical Paradoxes
The modern classical statistical physics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics and gravity theory are developed and well-known theories. The described theories are developed and well studied for a long
Basic Paradoxes of Statistical Classical Physics and Quantum Mechanics
Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are developed and well-known theories that represent a basis for modern physics. Statistical classical mechanics enable the derivation of the
The Universal Arrow of Time V-VI: (Part V) Unpredictable dynamics (Part VI) Future of artificial intelligence - Art, not Science: Practical Application of Unpredictable Systems
The paper consists of the two independent papers:(Part V) We see that exact equations of quantum and classical mechanics describe ideal dynamics which is reversible and leads to Poincare's returns.

This paper is a natural continuation of our previous paper arXiv:1011.4173 . We illustrated earlier that in classical Hamilton mechanics, for overwhelming majority of real chaotic macroscopic

The Universal Arrow of Time
Statistical physics cannot explain why a thermodynamic arrow of time exists, unless one postulates very special and unnatural initial conditions. Yet, we argue that statistical physics can explain

TLDR
It is shown that, within a quantum mechanical framework, all phenomena which leave a trail of information behind are those where entropy necessarily increases or remains constant, and physics cannot study those processes where entropy has decreased, even if they were commonplace.

Rapid interstellar travel by means of spacetime wormholes is described in a way that is useful for teaching elementary general relativity. The description touches base with Carl Sagan’s novel
Causal Paradoxes: A Conflict Between Relativity and the Arrow of Time
It is often argued that superluminal velocities and nontrivial space-time topologies, allowed by the theory of relativity, may lead to causal paradoxes. By emphasizing that the notion of causality

We define the time travel paradox in physical terms and prove its existence by constructing an explicit example. We argue further that in theories\char22{}such as general relativity\char22{}where the
Dynamic entanglement in oscillating molecules and potential biological implications.
We demonstrate that entanglement can persistently recur in an oscillating two-spin molecule that is coupled to a hot and noisy environment, in which no static entanglement can survive. The system

TLDR
The argument is shown that the argument is incomplete and furthermore, by providing a counter-example, it is argued that it is incorrect.
