Entropic Time

A temporary break from book-related blogging to bring you this delightful video from A Capella Science, in which Tim Blais sings about entropy while apparently violating one of my favorite laws of physics. I don’t even want to think about how much work this was to put together.

Tim was gracious enough to tip his hat to a lecture of mine as partial inspiration for the video. And now that I think about it, entropy and the arrow of time play crucial roles in The Big Picture. So this is a book-related blog post after all! Had you fooled.

    I taught high school physics for 30 years and one of my biggest regrets is not having resources like this. I hope that every physics teacher is using video like this in their instruction. It’s genuinely engaging, informative and – best of all – raises more questions than it answers.

    Thanks so much for sharing this video and the poetic naturalism related video from an earlier post. Really looking forward to the release of The Big Picture.

    My entire family liked them and that’s a disparate group of folks to impress.
