Do you understand the implications of this.
THERMODYNAMICS IS BULLSHIT.
THE PERFECT MACHINE.
REDUCTION OF ENTROPY.
CREATING SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING.
THIS WAS PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL SCIENCE TODAY.
THIS IS THE GREATEST ADVANCE IN HUMAN HISTORY.
i was under the impression that achieving absolute zero was impossible, and if it were ever to be achieved, we’d need to create something like maxwell’s demon. i must say, i’m surprised.
EDIT: okay, alright. i think that’s sort of a load of bullshit — it’s only on a technicality that they would reach absolute zero. and they haven’t done it yet. “infinite temperature” and “all energy states.” it’s only technically — by reaching an infinite temperature, and thereby, defining infinity, all energy states would exist at once and, of course, that includes absolute zero. so that’s how it’s a technicality.
absolute zero still can’t be reached though, not in a non-technical sort of way. and disregarding infinite temperatures, you can’t get slower (colder) than absolute zero.
it’s an interesting breakthrough, but i don’t find it promising.
