Murphy on Thermodynamics

“Thermo-dynamics?!?!! What -- you kidding me? ‘Thermo’, I get that; like thermometer, or thermal underwear. Like, Hot enough 4 U?, ha ha. But thermo….dynamics… that would be like the dynamics of heat. Which is like saying, the dynamics of space, or the dynamics of time. What would that mean?”

Murphy fell silent, and grew thoughtful.

“But it’s real, you’re saying. There really is a dynamics of all that.”

A kind of longing; a kind of sadness.

“There really is a lot out there that I don’t know.”
