At this point I would say believing in such things is pure fantasy. There
is not the slightest indication that we can cheat thermodynamics. I expect
all the other "physical laws" to fall long before this one does. The
complications and side effects of being able to ignore thermodynamics are
extensive as well, so breaking them is no minor matter. You assertion is
