Consequently, the entropy of the system should tend to decrease as often as it tends to increase, and so cannot provide a consistent directional signpost for time.
Следовательно, энтропия системы стремилась бы к уменьшению столь же часто, как и к увеличению и поэтому не могла бы являться основательным признаком для определения направления времени.

There were signposts which pointed to “Exeter The West,” and other places, as if they still pursued their habitual lives.
