Wherever the interview is, Wolfe is quite correct; in quantum mechanics a
particle travelling in one direction in time is the same thing as its
antiparticle travelling in the other direction in time. In the QM universe,
time's arrow seems not to apply...any given event can happen in either
direction. But decoherence gives us a meaningful entropy and so a
unidirectional time...
