Relativity and Thermodynamics as Malignant Tumours
 
"He opened by explaining how Einstein's theory of relativity is the foundation of every other theory in modern physics and that the assumption that the speed of light is constant is the foundation of that theory. Thus a constant speed of light is embedded in all of modern physics and to propose a varying speed of light (VSL) is worse than swearing! It is like proposing a language without vowels." http://www.thegreatdebate.org.uk/VSLRevPrnt.html

"If there's one thing every schoolboy knows about Einstein and his theory of relativity, it is that the speed of light in vacuum is constant. No matter what the circumstances, light in vacuum travels at the same speed... The speed of light is the very keystone of physics, the seemingly sure foundation upon which every modern cosmological theory is built, the yardstick by which everything in the universe is measured. [...] The only aspect of the universe that didn't change was the speed of light. And ever since, the constancy of the speed of light has been woven into the very fabric of physics, into the way physics equations are written, even into the notation used. Nowadays, to "vary" the speed of light is not even a swear word: It is simply not present in the vocabulary of physics." https://www.amazon.com/Faster-Than-S.../dp/0738205257

The metastases of Einstein's constant-speed-of-light malignancy definitively killed physics, but this science was already in agony in 1905, overwhelmed by the metastases of another malignancy: the second law of thermodynamics.. See an instructive review he http://philsci-archive.pitt.edu/313/1/engtot.pdf

In an electric field, deionized water undergoes turbulent motion:

The motion can convert ambient heat (the only usable source of energy) into work, e.g. by rotating waterwheels, in violation of the second law of thermodynamics.

Jim Al-Khalili: "Sunday physics poll: In the search for a theory of everything and the nature of physical reality, will the next big breakthrough in fundamental theoretical physics come from combining: QM and General Relativity; GR and thermodynamics; QM and thermodynamics; Some other option/combo" https://twitter.com/jimalkhalili/sta...41280500350976

At least two fundamental axioms in theoretical physics - Einstein's 1905 constant-speed-of-light postulate and the second law of thermodynamics - are false. So "the next big breakthrough in fundamental theoretical physics" will come from NEW AXIOMATICS.
