At first, there was only one language. All speech was poetry, all science was physics, all invention was engineering, all decoration was art, all reasoning was logic, and all speculation was philosophy. But later, many subtopics arose until at length, knowledge had fragmented into so many mutually incomprehensible sub-subspecialties that it could hardly be called knowledge at all. Information was spread out uniformly. Any fragment was as likely as any other to be in the right place to look. The second law of thermodynamics was at work, and entropy seemed to have increased to its maximum.
