comment Inverting the laws of physics
@MathiasMadsenStav Not all physical systems are time reversible. That is, knowing the state of the system now does not necessarily tell you what the state of the system was in the past. A famous example of this is the heat equation.

@RonMaimon, any chance I could get you to fill in a bit more of the dimension 3 section genneth asked about?

Thank you for taking the time to write this. It's going to take me a little while to read it carefully, but I really appreciate the effort!

comment Interpretation of the Random Schrödinger Equation
Thanks to both of you! @genneth I'm not too concerned with finding mathematically rigorous explanations here, since I know a few good researchers on the math side of this who I can get that kind of information from. If you have any links to the non-rigorous arguments (even ones that average over the randomness) that give some kind of intuition, I would appreciate that. I'm really just trying to get a feel for what physically 'should' be true here.
