Section of Libb Thims’ 2015 “Ancient Egypt” labeled “Zerotheism for Kids” slide (Ѻ) showing the Rosetta stone, discovered in Rosetta (c.1799), which allowed for the decipherment of hieroglyphics (c.1820), and later the decipherment of the Abrahamic and Brahmaic faiths as variants of Anunian theology (c.1900). |

Shannon | Clausius

In thermodynamics, American physicist Edwin Jaynes’ 1957 two-part article “Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics” has been described by American engineer Myron Tribus as the Rosetta Stone to uncovering the connection between Clausius entropy (1865) and Shannon entropy (1948). In particular, in 1958, after searching for clues to this puzzle for a decade and after having been asked this question during his 1948 doctoral examination at UCLA, Tribus states the following on finding Jaynes’ paper:

“Here was my(add discussion)Rosetta Stone! I went home and worked with that paper for a week, almost without sleep. All of my studies for a decade suddenly fell in place. A straight forward connection between Shannon’s entropy and the entropy of Clausius poured into the paper, almost without my hand.”

Pynchon

In 2005, writer Rick Moody commented that the reading of elusive American writer Thomas Pynchon’s authorized bootleg edition of his early stories (
