Filling in 2 × 2 -blocks is exactly the random growth, step (v) in the PNG growth rule. A somewhat more elaborate argument shows that the whole shuffling algorithm corresponds to the cascade defined above.

The formal expression of the "First" Principle can induce thinking that the quant ity dQ is the fundamental element of Thermodynamics. This is not so and originates subt le mistakes. In this sense it is important to think without attribut ing to the "First" Principle wrong physical interpretations.
