You are talking about using macrostates to find microstates. This could be further clarified.MD Coryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05342743632013663077noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-59908629189277247652018-09-11T02:10:21.370-07:002018-09-11T02:10:21.370-07:00Roger,

Given how poor the models of atomic particles are at present (electron bonding theory is hogwash, it has nothing to do with how atoms bond or combine or organize, and while good for balancing the accounting equations of chemistry formulas, do next to nothing explaining how the damn things work).<br /><br />Play with statistics all you like until you go blind, they Aren't actual causes (but a placeholder for a lack thereof), or explanations of causes, they are a mathematical abstraction pretending to be a description or cause. Particles do not somehow add themselves up and do math logic to determine their aggregate behavior, the mathematical process is NOT what the physical process is doing at all.<br /><br /> If you are merely content to look at highly processed group outcomes, fine, but you are really just guessing at what produced those outcomes... you only have to look at the ever growing absurdist zoo of particle physics to see it has become lost in artifacts of reified math.CFTnoreply@blogger.com
