Brownian Motion Interference
"The truth of the second law is ... a statistical, not a mathematical, truth, for it depends on the fact that the bodies we deal with consist of millions of molecules... Hence the second law of thermodynamics is continually being violated, and that to a considerable extent, in any sufficiently small group of molecules belonging to a real body." -- James Clerk Maxwell
Brownian Motion and Nano technology; creating order from chaos. Challenging the second law of thermodynamics
to provide a new source of energy. Most importantly, trying to falsify the proposed devices (or ideally, verify them).

Putting Order into Brownian Motion? Directed motion with no energy input?
Second Law Paradox
- Is soaking dirty dishes in water, which almost clean themselves over a day of waiting, a violation of
the second law? Is this experiement, dirty dishes, the key to understanding second law violations in nano technology?
- Does Entropy Define Time's Arrow And the Nano Magnet Clumping Paradox
Discusses information configuration, second law reversals and low entropy states still travelling forward in time
- Ignorance of the Second Law And How the Internet/mathematics is such Low entropy Information
Discusses how the second law is mis-stated, misinterpretted, misunderstood, and how the internet itself, is a low entropy
database of all kinds of low entropy information.. how did simple low entropy photons ramming down at earth become
mathematical texts and books, and web servers loaded with extremely low entropy information? Also discusses subjective
entropy vs objective.
- Heat Death of the Universe is actually Equilibrium Death - Can it Be Reversed?
Questions the correct term for heat death: "equilibrium death"?
- Response to Jack Semura and Todd Duncan, re: second law information erasure, entropy
Does information get erased and can it be recovered? Is this the right language to be using is is information re-configured
and rearranged into different forms? can high entropy become low entropy automatically without more energy input
- Does a Second Violation Mean Reversal Of Time, and Sheehan's Perpetual Computing
Discusses the idea that a second law violation would not necessarily imply reversing time, since information
is reconfigured to a new state. How would Sheehan's Perpetual Computing Diode affect information, entropy, and
Shannon's Information Theory?
- Putting Order into Brownian Motion, Second Law Paradox and Challenge
Can brownian motion be ordered (directed) where a particle moves in one direction more than any other direction?
A small nano magnet will head leftward more than rightward? Discusses a much simpler design than a brownian ratchet.
PDF Files: Challenges to the 2nd Law, Brownian Motion
The Above PDF Pages are Available in HTML
Work in progress. Articles are being converted into HTML. Not all are converted into aesthetically pleasing HTML yet.
Some individual HTML pages are available instead of large PDF files. You may find it easier to read
a single HTML page at a time rather than sifting through a large multi-page PDF file. Below are
2nd law violating device challenges and nano technology, relating to brownian motion, entropy, and
the second law of thermodynamics. Can the second law of thermodynamics be violated temporarily or permanently?
