In recent years increasing use has been made of a new postulate which perhaps cannot yet be stated in its final form, but which requires in a general way in the case of a system in thermodynamic equilibrium not only that the total number of molecules leaving a given state in unit time shall on the average equal the number arriving in that state in unit time, but also that the number leaving by any particular path shall on the average be equal to the number arriving by the reverse of that particular path, thus excluding any cyclical maintenance of the equilibrium state.
