The era of Postscientism started in 1850 when Clausius scored a
decisive victory over human rationality: he made the world believe that
the prototype of the second law of thermodynamics - all heat engines
working between the same two temperatures have the same maximal
efficiency - was a corollary of the triviality "heat flows
spontaneously from hot to cold". Fifteen years later Clausius struck
again: this time he convinced the world that something called entropy
was a state function which always increased. The jubilation was
enormous and eternal - the longevity of the concept of entropy will
certainly surpass that of Aristotelian concept of entelechy.

Still in about 2500 years a historian of science will bump into the
following ancient text:

http://philsci-archive.pitt.edu/archive/00000313/00/engtot.pdf
"A more important objection it seems to me, is that Clausius based his
conclusion that the entropy increases in a nicht umkehrbar
[irreversible] process on the assumption that such a process can be
closed by an umkehrbar [reversible] process to become a cycle.....But
the assumption is far from obvious...."

Then the concept of entropy will be rejected and replaced with some
better concept. (Never abandon a theory if you cannot replace it with a
better one.)

Hey, Pentcho. It sounds to me like you might need a little R & R. Why
don't you come visit me here in Victoria, we can go deer hunting! The
trouble though with deer hunting is that there's always these
unfortunate "accidents" that happen. Oh, well, never mind. Looking
forward to your next posted bit of wisdom. I love you.

- Don
