A warning to all young people: don’t trust too much in your teachers, in your doctors, in your priests… A lot of them really need new glasses and cease that blurry talk which sounds like a broken record. Let those faithful spreaders of myths find some peace of mind in retirement. Search by yourself.
The properties of everything depends on everything (medium)
Sound is only sound in a sound-conductive medium, such as atmospheric air.
In a non-conductive medium with respect to sound, such as vacuum, sound doesn’t sound, sound is not sound.
Everything has no definitive structure or properties, they depend on everything. Everything depends on everything.
The boiling point of water is 100ºC only at a certain low altitude, only for scientists of depressions. If you think that the Everest top is too cold, water will disagree with you: here, I boil quicker. The boiling point of water depends on the pressure of the air around it.
Everything is a multiplicity
It is false to say that water is H2O, since it also contains H2O, OH–, H3O+ and other ions. The understanding of water as H20 is a vast oversimplification, a statistical average of ever changing and complex interactions among several families of molecules. The only thing we can say is that the average ratio of atoms in water is 2 H: 1 O. Some natural tendencies can be emphasized with additives, but these aren’t indispensable to those reactions: an acid added to water will increase the number of positive hydrogen ions (H+) that combine with H2O molecules to form hydronium (H3O+); a base added to water will increase the number of hydroxide (OH-) molecules.
Did you know that different proportions of hydrogen isotopes in pure water is enough to change water character? Preponderance of protium hydrogen (1 proton) makes water drinkable or “light water”; deuterium (2 protons) produces poisonous “heavy water”; and tritium (3 protons) corrosive water.
The properties of everything you can think of arise not from the constituents taken individually, but from the statistics of overall relations in a certain time and space.
Everything changes with respect to everything
Don’t buy the theory that the Moon moves around Earth… After all, school science remained geocentric. Everything moves in the universe, everything with respect to everything. Even the apparently immobile dervish.
«The principle is like that of a see-saw, or teeter-totter. If two people of very different weights sit on opposite sides of the balance point (or “fulcrum“), the heavier one must sit closer to the balance point (…).
The balance point is the “center of mass” of the see-saw, just as the barycenter is the balance point of the Earth-Moon system. It is this point that actually moves around the Sun in what we call the orbit of the Earth, while the Earth and Moon each move around the barycenter, in their respective “orbits”. (…)
Just as the Moon moves around the Earth once every 27 1/3 days, as a result of the Earth’s pull on the Moon, the Earth moves “around the Moon” once every 27 1/3 days, as a result of the Moon’s pull on the Earth. More accurately, each moves around a point in between them, which would be the balance point between them, if they were on a seesaw, called the center of mass or barycenter of the Earth-Moon system. At any given time, the bodies are on opposite sides of the center of mass, moving in opposite directions. As shown in the diagram (below), each exerts a force on the other which, according to Newton’s Third Law of Motion (the Law of Action and Reaction), is equal and opposite to the force that the other is exerting on it; but although the forces are equal, their effects are not, because the more massive Earth is accelerated less by the same force, than the less massive Moon. (…)
As the Earth rotates to the east each day, the Moon appears to move to the west. (…) You would be compelled to move around the center of mass every month, because the Earth’s gravity holds you on the surface while it goes around the center of mass; but you are not just along for the ride, as the Moon is pulling on you with a force equal to 1/300,000th of your weight, in a way that would cause you to follow the path that the Earth makes around the barycenter, even if you weren’t firmly held to the Earth by its gravity.»
