From Nature’s Tendency To Statistical Mechanics
Pp. 56-60 (5)
Some processes happen spontaneously. What, at a macroscopic level,
appears as a nature’s tendency, is an effect of the complex statistical behaviour of the
microscopic particles: their overall net effect emerges at the macroscopic level as a
spontaneous force that determines if and how a system can spontaneously change, and
if and toward which direction a process is therefore started.
