some people say you can't have more energy output from a system than you put in it since it violates second law of thermodynamics. doesn't it violate the same law when one drops an a-bomb on the ground? don't you get much much more energy than the one you could get only from the kinetic energy the bomb has while it touches the ground? please, explain me that paradox with 2 thing in the mind: 1) no reference shoud be made to any type of stored of whatever type of (say nuclear) energy; the same argument could be applied to any system, since it might be possible to derive a lot of energy from a given system after somehow disturbing it and releasing certain type of stored energy. by the way, releasing much mooooooore energy than was transfered to that system. after all how much do we know about nature? 2) no mathematics shoud be employd to prove otherwise. math and logic does not have to do anything with how the nature operates. it's probably good for quantitavie description of a physical process.
