Hello dbmorpher here,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was looking at some articles on entropy and wondered, could this be used to calculate time?

Entropy is known as the arrow of time, figurative I know but could actually be used to measure.

If there was a device that calculated the entropy in a set system couldn't it automatically calculate it and give a numerical value?

This would need a set system for all clocks but would render any other non- atomic clocks obsolete because it is based on measurements and calculations instead of gears and circuitry.

I would like to know if what I said in that last sentence could happen and if I could make one myself.

I found this

But I do not understand it very well.
