When I am reading Philosophy and Simulation, I encountered the phrase:
But I could not understand what the phrase means? Could you give me a synonym of this phrase?
To understand how this works let's imagine two bodies of water at different temperatures. The moment we place these bodies in contact with each other energy will flow from the body with higher temperature to the one with lower temperature, the flow continuing until the temperature difference disappears. In other words, the difference in temperature will display a tendency to average itself out . Thus, saying that a body of water possess a certain temperature, and that possession of that property defines an enduring state, implies that departures from that state are constantly being counteracted by an objective tendency.
