Kinetic theory of gases and velocity correlations

In case you assume a time-symmetric dynamics, you will never “get rid” of correlations between the velocities and positions of all those particles which have collided with each other in the past. These correlations might in principle be encoded in an extremely complex manner.

But what is intuitively meant by their velocities being correlated? Is what I wrote in post #23 a correct intuitive understanding?
