Relativity and Cosmology


On the Entropic Origin of the Cosmos

Authors: Alexandre Harvey-Tremblay

We present a simple model of cosmology inspired by a cycle of statistical physics involving the age, the size and the entropy of the system. The model is formalized in statistical physics by the introduction of a micro-state q defined only with a time quantity t(q) and a position quantity x(q). In this representation, many of the laws of classical physics (inertia, special relativity, general relativity, and dark energy) are emergent as entropic laws and are associated to the thermodynamic trade-offs between the age and size of the system. The representation also produces an emergent arrow of time which, when acting on these laws, enforces the cosmological horizons that bound the observable universe by abruptly limiting the occupancy rate of the micro-states beyond them.
