a apneia da arte

Picture in your mind's eye the sand box divided in half with black sand on one side and white sand on the other. We take a child and have him run hundreds of times clockwise in the box until the sand gets mixed and begins to turn grey, after that we have him run anti-clockwise, the result will not be a restoration of the original division but a greater degree of greyness and an increase of entropy.
