The time evolution of macroscopic systems can be experimentally observed and mathematically described on many different levels of description. It has been conjectured that the governing equations on all levels are particular realizations of a single abstract equation. We support this conjecture by interpreting the abstract equation as a geometrical formulation of general nonequilibrium thermodynamics. View Full-Text
