The author would like to complete the article by quoting the British physicist Robert Emden:
When I have been a student, I have read with pleasure F. Wald's small book under the title ''The Queen of the World and her Shadow''. Energy and entropy were kept in mind. Now, when I understand these concepts deeper, I think that their positions should be interchanged. In the giant factory of natural processes, the entropy law is a director who controls and manages all the business, while the energy conservation law is only an accountant who is keeping a balance between debit and credit. (Emden, 1938).
