 James Clerk Maxwell, one of the greatest scientists in history had a thought experiment in order to show how the 2nd law of thermodynamics - one of the supposed immutable laws, could be violated. He imagined that a demon separated the fast moving molecules from the slow moving ones causing one side to heat up from the motion and the other side to cool down. This reduction in possibilities and the heating up of particles from a cooler state goes completely against the 2nd law of thermodynamics. The requirement for this concept however was that the demon had to have full knowledge of the system and all the molecules in it in order to determine which were fast and which were slow and where they would be located at any given time. This idea was considered at the time nonetheless impossible because no one could know all the information. But big data and our lack of data privacy and laws have changed that and I have a theory that Facebook, Cambridge Analytica (and others which surely will follow in their place) have 'cracked' this and have weaponized it against us, and will continue to do so until we do something about it.   More information and supporting documents and video can be found at  Thank you for listening.  --- Send in a voice message:
