From classical point of view the full description of a system is the sum of its parties descriptions. Quantum mechanics introduced essential correction in the classical view: the measurable properties of a particle ensemble can exceed the properties sum of its particles. It is impossible to describe such entangled states by the known local field equation. Now nonlocal quantum correlations are well known, they underlie quantum information science and have the practical applications already. On the other hand in macro-physics, in particular, in astrophysics and geophysics a lot of facts about distant dissipative processes correlations (including violating classical causality) not reducible to electromagnetic and gravitation interactions have been collected. These correlations could be explained by their nonlocal nature. Although thermo- dynamic limit now is already a subject of entanglement research, the mentioned large-scale processes have remained out of scope of quantum information. The book “Causality and Reversibility in Irreversible Time” by S. M. Korotaev is the first attempt to fill this gap.
