|A depiction of someone who uses information theory, outside of communications engineering, information science, or cryptography, proper, as a weed theorist, choking out the flowers of good science. |
In this sense, the various metaphysics and theologies found in the garden of thermodynamics continuously need to be weeded and removed so to not choke out the beauty of the thermodynamics, pure, proper, and applied.
The biggest weed in thermodynamics, currently, information theory, developed by Claude Shannon, and its incorrigible attempts at thermodynamics association.
Other noted weed theorists, include: Corrado Giannantoni, and his "quality thermodynamics" theory; Ivan Kennedy and his "action thermodynamics" theory; Jeremy Rifkin and his agenda; Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, and his material entropy theory; among numerous others, e.g. Christopher Langan, and (add).
