The main mathematical argument of the universal framework for local equilibrium proposed in Analysis 36, 49 (2016) is condensed and formulated as a fundamental dichotomy between subsets of positive measure and subsets of zero measure in ergodic theory. The physical interpretation of the dichotomy in terms of local equilibria rests on the universality of time scale separation in an appropriate long-time limit.
