Hot and cold are both archaic terms in
scientific analysis. There is no duality on this. Energy is quantifiable. Hot and cold are not ends of a continuum, nor are they true opposites in physical science. You can call
something hot if it is one degree above absolute zero, or you can call something cold if it is merely less energetic than the heaving solar sea around it. Hot and cold are not relevant terms when discussing things which have a dual nature.

It is not enough, when proposing a theory of everything, to demonstrate that someone else
is proceeding on fallacious assumptions. One must guard against them one's self.
