In a quantum universe with a strong arrow of time, it is standard to postulate that the initial wave function started in a particular macrostatethe special lowentropy macrostate selected by the Past Hypothesis. Moreover, there is an additional postulate about statistical mechanical probabilities according to which the initial wave function is a ''typical'' choice in the macrostate. Together, they support a probabilistic version of the Second Law of Thermodynamics: typical initial wave functions will increase in entropy. Hence, there are two (...) 

According to the doctrine of SuperHumeanism, the world’s mosaic consists only of permanent matter points and changing spatial relations, while all the other entities and features figuring in scientific theories are nomological parameters, whose role is merely to build the best law system. In this paper, I develop an argument against SuperHumeanism by pointing out that it is vulnerable to and does not have the resources to solve the wellknown problem of immanent comparisons. Firstly, I show that it cannot endorse (...)
