Every child, upon first smashing an egg, learns the First Arrow of Time, as defined by Sir Arthur Eddington, the British physicist of a century ago. It’s the Law of Humpty-Dumpty: What Has Been Done Cannot be Undone.
In other words, there are an infinite number of ways for an egg to be destroyed and broken; but there is only one arrangement of an egg’s molecules that represents its unbroken state. A single state has little chance of recurring when measured against the infinite number of alternate states; therefore actions have the consequence that once they have happened there is no going back.
But what if the multiverse itself is also infinite? Wouldn’t the math change?
