“The construction of a relativistic thermodynamics theory is still controversial after more than 110 years. To the date there is no agreement on which set of relativistic transformations of thermodynamic quantities is the correct one, or if the problem even has a solution.” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-17526-4

My comments in Scientific Reports:

There is no point in combining thermodynamics and special relativity. Both are based on obviously false initial assumptions - the second law of thermodynamics and Einstein's constant-speed-of-light postulate. The problem is that scientists don't see the obvious falsehood. Here is an example: ........

Reconciling irreconcilable concepts is crucial in post-truth science. So for more than half a century post-truth scientists have been trying to reconcile Newton's absolute time and Einstein's idiotic spacetime:

"The effort to unify quantum mechanics and general relativity means reconciling totally different notions of time. In quantum mechanics, time is universal and absolute; its steady ticks dictate the evolving entanglements between particles. But in general relativity (Albert Einstein's theory of gravity), time is relative and dynamical, a dimension that's inextricably interwoven with directions X, Y and Z into a four-dimensional "space-time" fabric." https://www.quantamagazine.org/20161201-quantum-gravitys-time-problem/

Perimeter Institute: "Quantum mechanics has one thing, time, which is absolute. But general relativity tells us that space and time are both dynamical so there is a big contradiction there. So the question is, can quantum gravity be formulated in a context where quantum mechanics still has absolute time?" https://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/research/conferences/convergence/roundtable-discussion-questions/what-are-lessons-quantum
