Current Status of Thermodynamics
Many aspects of computers are amazing accomplishments, yet most remain fraught with problems, most of which were unforeseeable to the computer’s engineers and/or programmers. So with each and every new version of programs e.g. Windows, one has to continually update fixes in order to circumnavigate the computer galaxy. Certainly, the current technology could be redesigned with new simplified code, enabling computers to run smoother. Sadly, this is undoable, as it could render the billions of computers, obsolete. Plus who pays for it? Although bits and bytes remain simple concepts, when they go through a gazillion transitions, they often become too complicated for any mere mortal to comprehend, yet simply fix. So we now are stuck with these overly complex computers! Then again, who really cares since these habitually cursed machines generally (not always) accomplish what we think we need.
Traditional thermodynamics is like computers. It remains fraught with problems that should have been addressed long ago. But an array of employed fixes seemingly makes it work, therefore why would anyone really care? The current accepted status being thermodynamics is a mature science, one that nobody should dare challenge. Are we stuck with this overly complicated science? Must future generations endear the exercises in madness that we endeared e.g. the relentless unnecessary shuffling of all those partial derivatives? Perhaps!
Monumental changes by humanity are never easily rendered, especially when the fully indoctrinated refuse to relent. Where would we find humble enough scientists whom accept that they too, are part of a complication of reality? It amazes me that when I explain to the educated why thermodynamics is dangerously fraught with misunderstandings, they generally agree with me but then claim not to be an expert in the field. And when I confront an expert, well they either are too busy to learn, or too arrogant to release their educational blinders.
Issues in thermodynamics really starts with the parameter of which noone knows it’s true meaning, yet it remains the science’s very cornerstone, that being entropy. Accordingly, herein we shall rewrite thermodynamics based upon simpler constructive logic, without any reliance upon entropy.
Alexander Unzicker points out that in “the structure of scientific revolutions” Thomas Kunn considers that “Long periods of “normal science” dominated by the paradigm of time, are interrupted by revolutions in which a large part of the existing knowledge becomes obsolete and a new paradigm, often simpler and more insightful is established”. (ref: google: A.Unzicker, “On the Origin of the Constants c and h” orhttp://vixra.org/pdf/1508.0170v1.pdf).
In terms of Thomas Kunn this website is part of a plausible revolution of the science.
