In science:

They all result from the global time-asymmetry (GAT) and, therefore, point to the same direction.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
Only GAT allows us to select one of these structures (one of the twins) as the one related to the future or as the physically relevant one for spontaneous evolutions, by creating a substantial difference between them.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
Since the global energy flux comes from the past initial instability, only retarded solutions are physically meaningful: this fact defines EMAT which, so defined, coincides with GAT.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
So GAT gives rise again to a substantial difference between the two members of the pair.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
Since QAT goes from preparation to measurement , its direction agrees with the direction of GAT.

Bij een supernova vervormt het binnenste van de ster tot een radio pulsar of een zwart gat.
Radio Pulsars
De zwaartekracht om dit superzware punt is zo groot dat zelfs licht er niet weg kan komen: een zwart gat.
Radio Pulsars
De buitenste lagen van de oude ster vallen namelijk langzaam weer terug naar het zwarte gat, en draaien er met een grote kolk in, als in figuur 5.
Radio Pulsars
Veel ster ren die wel zwaar genoeg zijn om te ontploffen, hebben namelijk een ijzerkern die net niet groot genoeg is om helemaal in te storten tot een zwart gat.
Radio Pulsars
In het laatste stadium voor de vorming van het zwarte gat, wanneer de oude ijzerkern al is samengeperst tot een grote bol van tegen elkaar aanzittende neutronen (als in het rechterpaneel van figuur 2), stopt de kern van de ster plotseling met instorten.
Radio Pulsars
If it is a nonzero constant, the second equation would imply that the poles of gat and ga0 agree, and in particular, that at = a0 , contradicting the assumption that ϑ0 /∈ C .
