I am seating here at my computer and my body is loosing heat and, thus, I am trying to heat the Universe.
The ratio "heat gain/heat loss" is an essential zero for all practical purposes as I am unable to heat the Universe as much as I try (in this case, which is rather a common case).
Heck, I am unable to even heat the walls of my own house while sitting at the computer - forget the Universe (so I need to burn some natural gas to compensate for my own inability).
And so for the applied purposes, heat loss by object A does not mean heat gain by object B (by default).
In many practical cases, we can safely ignore the fundamental "loss/gain" equality.
Yes, I know, the energy and matter are NEVER lost - but practically this does not matter.
Again, a general school discussion.
