Entropy
How does the idea of ever increasing entropy fit into individual, as opposed to universal, time?
Is our view of the total entropy of the universe also individual if our view of time is individual? Or can the concept of entropy be used to relight the idea of universal time existing in some sense after all?
I may be taking your sheets of paper anology too far...... But is it thought that time moves forward in discrete "sheets" (i.e. is it quantised) or does it "flow" in much the way we individually perceive it to?
