Actually, could I not say "heat is the lack of cold"? Does that then not make heat real? Now that I've defined it that way, you can never actually "measure heat." The reason being is because in reality it's just "lots of cold, a little bit of cold, or no cold. But there's nothing called heat. Cold is no energy. Heat is not the opposite of cold because it is simply the absence of no energy. You cannot measure it."
Something being the absence of something DOES not mean you cannot measure it. I can measure cold by comparing the amount of heat in a room to my own body heat, if it's massively below it, I'm motherfucking cold, because I'm lacking heat - or something similar to that nature. Seriously, the concepts exist for a reason, even if cold is simply a lack of heat, it being defined in that way does not invalidate it's...effect on reality. It just has to be relative to something. Cold = things lack heat = things change. It exists.
Well I don't know anything about thermophysics or whatever the proper term may be but it struck me odd that there is a low point on the negative scale _ 400 something degrees I think the little dialog said.. don't know how true it is .. but if it is that's interesting that there is a limit to how "cold" something is but not a limit the other direction for heat since you can always add 1 to it
