comment Does the scientific community consider the Loschmidt paradox resolved? If so what is the resolution?
Could you please illustrate or point to the specific derivation/formulae which show that "its solution depends exponientally on the initials conditions."?

comment Is there a universal rest frame of reference?
you probably mean ... a unique rest frame ...

actually, you are moving 99% of c in some reference frame

prettyfied latex

thanks, I tried to look up before, but I couldnt identify what engine was used and what environment I needed...

(his question doesnt seem to refer to probability of strange events where wavefunction is small but nonzero in quantum mechanics, but to small probabilities in statistical mechanics)

comment Chance of objects going against greater entropy?
The logarithmic measure of multiplicity is but one of many equivalent definitions of entropy: when multiplicities are unavailable S[X]=-\int P(X=x)*ln(P(X=x)) dx. Apply to microscopic probability distribution and you get traditional entropy which tends to increase over time, but calculate entropy on macroscopic probability distribution and this will tend to decrease over time...

comment The Sun Can Make Stuff Hotter Than Itself
but then how come farts (pretty cold with respect to the flame) heat flames?

comment Chance of objects going against greater entropy?
or in short: microscopic entropy increases, macroscopic entropy decreases. BTW since life rests on making things more certain (i.e. the probability of having 2 legs should be much higher than other amounts of legs) macroscopic decrease of entropy is necessary, and hence microscopic increase of entropy is necessary...

actually I had already voted you up because: the second bullet looks a lot like a different interpretation of what I have in mind, and because it is a summary of what different directions the scientific community explores on the topic, which was part of the question
