"You could win battles, but entropy won all the wars."
-SM Stirling, Island In The Sea Of Time (New York, 1998), 305.

Dominic Flandry prolongs the Terran Empire despite the inevitability of the Long Night. Heroes fight and win battles in Midgard, then in Valhalla, despite the inevitability of the Ragnarok.

But are there ways to counteract entropy in the long run? See here. We don't know but science fiction covers every possibility.

Kaor, Paul!

I'm inclined to prefer or hope that one way our race might survive the heat death of the universe is via what we see in TAU ZERO.
