the second law of thermodynamics

By Josh ClementsPublished 5 months ago Updated 4 months ago 1 min read

Hot particles move

Us through time - heat is the key.

We live by firelight.

(There is one, and only one, law in physics that acknowledges a difference between the past and the future; the second law of thermodynamics, a.k.a. the law of entropy. The second law has to do with heat and says that heat cannot pass from a cold body to a hot one.)
