I don't understand your point, are you arguing that time is asymmetric or
that it is not? The existence of neutral kaon decay strengthens the already
very strong argument that time is asymmetric, but only very slightly. Yes a
movie of neutral kaon decay would look slightly different if run forward
rather than backward, but not if you looked at the reversed film in a
mirror and you assumed the electrical charges were reversed. CPT (Charge
Parity Time) symmetry still holds true.
