Water — Simple Example, Complex Reality
[The following is an excerpt from the book Dynamic Evolution – the Fundamentals]:
- The dependencies between Entities within the Plexus can be illustrated using the example of the apparently simple water molecule. This consists of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. The properties of the water molecule, however, are manifold. These will be developed in more advanced studies; at this point, water will serve to illustrate how the concepts of Dynamic Evolution are applied in specific ways to objects and forces from the tiny atom to the largest Galactic Supercluster and are best illustrated by The Plexus within this context.
- The above illustration shows two molecules of Hydrogen (H2) bonding with a single molecule of Oxygen (O) to form the water molecule. Electrical attraction is also involved in at least two basic ways: (1) the molecule’s own firm particle binding, and (2) the way the molecule is able to bind to other substances. These three Entities (electrical conductivity, hydrogen, oxygen), are a small sample of the many objects and forces that water depends on for its existence and continuity. Therefore, the following illustration is a tiny simplified fraction of The Plexus, demonstrating connectivity between these Entities:
- In this illustration, a very small portion of the Entities that water depends on are shown. There are many more Entities in the opposite direction, dependents.
- As mentioned above, H2O is sometimes referred to by scientists as a “simple” molecule. However, note this partial list of the properties of water:
- High cohesion
- Surface tension
- Heat capacity (high heat conductivity)
- High latent heat of evaporation
- Intra-molecular hydrogen bonding
- Finely balanced miscibility (ability to mix)
- Very light as a gas
- Very dense as a liquid
- Hydration (which has many sub-sets)
- Ionization factors
- Density-driven thermal convection
- Expansion on freezing
- Hot water freezes faster than cold water
- Peculiarities of behavior under differing pressures
- Brine rejection (salt distribution)
How do the above entities fit into the model of ‘The Plexus’ as described by Dynamic Evolution? How many converging, interdependent, links are there within The Plexus that relate to water?
