(Inspired from this question (A) which unfortunately the link in the selected answer is now 404 broken (which might have contained my answer), thus cannot read any deeper than that)
From the above links, and my past understanding, I understood that time has an arrow, which in here Paul Davis made a distinction between the two subtle types
Arrow as an asymmetry: That processes don't behave in an identical way when t is replaced by -t. Many examples including the CP violations, dampened wave equations, or in optics where some signals are engineered in a way so that it behaves differently if t is repalced by -t
The (psychological) daily life experience of the flow of time: Which he and many physicists considered as an illusion, while some others considered as an emergent property of time
I also understood that time is often used as a parameter to track how the states of a system changes
And in the longest answer of this link, it was mentioned how we often use (near) periodic events as clocks to measure time
Since the best answer from (A) mentioned the following
Our scientific time definition uses the concept of entropy to codify change in space, and entropy tells us that there exists an arrow of time.
In a steady state there can be a number of properties unchanged in time (even though the universe as a whole increases entropy steadily due to the 2nd Law of thermodynamics)
Thus this brought the question
If we restrict ourselves to within the steady state and measure some properties (hence the entropy production cannot be measured since it is outside the system, and within the system the net change in entropy is 0 thus not changing with time), are we able to tell how much time has elapsed based on just measuring these properties that are not changing with time?
Or put it in another way, can we still tell time from within the system if entropy in the system remains unchanged?
