The source of the macroscopic time asymmetry, aka the second law of thermodynamics, is the difference of prediction and retrodiction.
In a prediction, the deduction direction is the same as the physical/observer time direction.
In a retrodiction, the deduction direction is opposite to the physical/observer time direction.

If a retrodiction is done by a time-opposite observer, he will see the entropy increasing. For him, he is really doing a prediction.

The existence of the so-called “the paradox of the arrow of time” is fundamentally due to the fact that some people insist that physics is about an observer-independent objective truth of reality.
However, it is not the case. Physics is not about “objective” reality. Instead, physics is always about what an observer would observe.
