Every funded phenomenon contains an unfunded component, but the converse is not necessarily
true. This is equivalent to the Second Law of
Thermodynamics, where mechanical energy and
funded phenomena are identified, and heat and unfunded phenomena are identified.


Reminder: Mechanical energy can be completely converted into heat, but heat cannot be
completely converted into mechanical energy.



Therefore, a funded phenomenon can be completely converted into an unfunded phenomenon
-

don't we all know this so well!
-

but an unfunded phenomenon cannot be completely converted
into a funded phenomenon. It may happen that the part not converted fund
ing is critical. This
means that in some cases throwing money at a problem will not solve it
-

which, again, we are all
well aware of. (This is why an aerial attack is often insufficient
-

"boots on the ground" being
also required)


With this version of th
e Second Law of Thermodynamics, we can also defined fear and anger:


Fear stems from the prospect of your (highly
-
worthy) funded phenomenon becoming completely
unfunded, and anger stems from the prospect of your (highly
-
worthy) unfunded phenomenon not
rece
iving funding.
