(only if the oxidation is changing the white sphere, e.g., to gray, may we know what happened);

(b) suppose that an evolutionary event also occurs, related to the "chameleon" effect (sensible to the environment): again the probability is no more fifty-fifty; moreover the event's interval depends on the "chameleon";

(c) suppose an oscillating event occurs, similar to the Beluzov-Zhabotinsky reaction: the situation is more complex and depends on many parameters. Again the observer has no possibility to predict which sphere will be picked up from the container.

It is possible to conclude that in the far from equilibrium framework a classical probability approach does not apply and new models have to be developed for the Boltzmann's relation S = k X ln W.
