I am not finished with superconductivity chapter for I have a lot of
comments, historical lessons, and more issues to discuss. But I want
to start on how the Malus law derived from the Maxwell Equations
encompasses two of the four laws of Thermodynamics and makes
Thermodynamics a subset of the Maxwell Equations.

It is lucky for me that thermodynamics has 4 laws that are short and
1) Zeroth law: law of equal temperatures
2) 1st law: conservation of energy
3) 2nd law: heat flows from hot body to cold body, never the reverse
4) 3rd law: impossible to reach absolute zero Kelvin

Now I wish to show that the Malus law of the Maxwell Equations begets
the 2nd law and 3rd law of thermodynamics.

Now let me make a side note here. In that I thought the Maxwell
Equations had to have temperature as a term inside the Maxwell
Equations themselves. It is obvious that heat affects magnetism and so
I thought there had to be temperature terms involved in the Maxwell
But the Maxwell Equations do not need temperature terms.

But what rescued me from superconductivity theory was that the Malus
law does have temperature and heat and resistance involved, although
to our untrained eyes and minds, we would not recognize it at first
glance. You see, the Malus law makes Intensity of photons to be
temperature, and to be heat and to be resistance. So the Malus law
tells us there is an Absolute Zero Kelvin temperature and it is when
the polarized filters are 0 degrees, or aligned and where all the
photons flow through. And there is a maximum hot temperature of 90
degrees (we probably need a 5th law of thermodynamics of a maximum
temperature), where there is no flow of photons for they are all
transformed into heat. And the angles in between 0 and 90 degrees is
the flow of hot to cold because a fraction of the initial photon
intensity gets through. The photons are "hot" and when they flow
through they are transported to a "cold".

Let me lament something here, that in the early 1990s I constructed a
theory of superconductivity based on the idea that the neutrinos were
the messenger particles, and here in 2013, I have basically the same
theory, only I use photons, not neutrinos. In the 1990s, I did not
have the Maxwell Equations as the axioms over all of physics and in
the 1990s, I was not aware of the huge role of the Malus law.

But I still feel that neutrinos are part of this picture of
superconductivity and also thermodynamics.
