The concept of the 'arrow of time' is discussed in relation to thermodynamics, electrodynamics and cosmology Time symmetric electrodynamics, the absorber theory of radiation and quantum transitions receive attention to develop a working theory applicable to a universe with a perfect future absorber and an imperfect past absorber, such as the steady state cosmological model. It is stated that the approach adopted herein establishes a strong connection between the electrodynamic and cosmological arrows of time, and points a way towards linking these arrows with the thermodynamic one.
