You are welcome to check out my previous blogs within the series “Fundamentals of Physics”
As I've mentioned in previous blogs, I have decided to walk the physics textbook "Fundamentals of Physics", as to be sure to cover all the basic points and to align myself and all the readers, so that all have equal knowledge as an equally firm basis to start and expand from, and that we all share the same definitions as to reach a point of proper and effective communication and thus avoid miscommunications, within the principle of prevention is the best cure.
Today we reach the definition of Density. As in my previous blogs, I will first explain it simplistically as shown in the text book, and then will share my insight as to how we can use this information to better our existence as to through the knowledge of physics, as how we understand the physical functions, to find the correlation, the reflection into and as humanity, and to find practical ways to use the information to support ourselves to live in equilibrium with the law of physics, as the forces of nature that govern our existence.
Density is a property of substance, of matter, it is defined as the amount of mass contained in a unit volume. This implies that different substances have different densities, so for instance a cubic centimeter of aluminum , which corresponds to the volume of an aluminum (Al ) cube measuring 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm, will have a mass of 2.7 grams, and thus a density of 2.7 g/cm^3, where as lead ( Pb ) which is a denser substance will have mass of 11.3 g for each cubic centimeter of substance. But if all substance consists of the exact same particles, what causes the differences between the different substances, how does one substance differ from another in density?
In my previous blog I discussed the atom, but I left out some information, I mentioned it has a nucleus with a positive charge and around it a "cloud" of electrons with a negative charge - we know that each atom consists of the same particles, but that different substances have different densities, they thus must differ in the amount of particles they hold within them, thus they differ in the amount of protons/neutrons in the nucleus and the electrons around it.
Another point I didn't mention is the mass these particles have - even though very small, the neutrons, protons and electrons have mass, and within the principle of accumulation as 1 + 1 = 2, the accumulation of mass of all these tiny particles gives us what we know and see as matter. Within the atom, the protons and neutron have approximate the same mass where as the electron has approximately 1/1863 of the mess of the proton, thus the electrons are disregarded when speaking about the mass of the atom because their mass is so much smaller, as they are about 10 to the power of 3 smaller in mass than the protons/neutrons, Thus, the sum of the protons and neutrons in an atom is considered to represent the mass of the atom and is defined as the atomic mass of the atom.
An atom is specifically defined by the amount of protons in the nucleus which is called the atomic number, the atomic number is thus like the atom's identity number, whereas the amount of neutrons can change in the same atom. This phenomenon of having a different amount of neutrons to a specific atom, is referred to as an isotope, where an isotope is the same atom, thus the same atomic number as the amount of protons, but with variations within the amount of neutrons it holds, the amount of neutrons don't define the atom, only the amount of protons does. This is why, when looking at the element periodic table, you will find the atomic number to be a whole/natural number (1, 2, 3, etc.) and the atomic mass will not be a whole number (1.00794, 4.002602, 6.941, etc.) because it is actually the average of the atomic mass in all isotopes of a specific atom. You can Explore all the relevant key information about the chemical elements, within the different atoms, through this periodic table.
As I've said, the amount of protons is what defines the property / identity / personality / characteristics of an atom, whereas the amount of electrons will be equal to the amount of protons, in order to sustain stability in an electrically balanced atom. Remember that the proton and electron have equal but opposite charge, whereas the neutron's charge is zero, thus for the atom to have overall no electric charge, the electrons and protons charge must be equal in order to balance each other out. Though, it is not a requirement for an atom to be electrically balanced at all times, thus it doesn't have to have the same amount of electrons and protons, but I will expand on this point in the future
Now, back to density, it has been found that every atom has a different amount of particles, but one could assume that the more particles the bigger the atom, and thus the density would remain constant for all substances, but it has been found that the size of the atom is not in direct relation to the amount of particles, thus you have atoms that have more particles but are smaller in size than atom with less particles, as well as the distance between the atoms, as they "hold on to each other", is not constant as within each substance the connections and interactions are different - this thus brings us to the obvious conclusion that each atom mast have a different density of particles within it, as well as, as we've shown above, each substance has a different density.
How can we now take this information, as the principle of density, as a unique property of the different expressions of substance, into application of our process of understanding ourselves and the reality around us in a more profound and insightful way?
Within our life experience we can relate this to our emotions and feelings, as an example of one dimension of looking at it, though within the principle of "as above so below", we can expect to find the same construct in all dimensions within and as the mind, as personalities, thoughts, memories, etc.
what I am referring to is - just as different substances have different densities, our emotions and feelings are experienced as having different densities, as some emotions and feelings by nature are more dense than others, thus, they can be seen as having more substance/mass per "unit volume". This is the reason we experience some emotions and feeling are harder to move through, to transcend, than others, they are simply more dense.
On the negative spectrum as emotions, some examples of dense emotions are anger, hatred, jealousy - as we experience these dense emotions, one can say that "a little goes a long way", they will have a long lasting hold on us, as appose to less dense emotions such as irritation, boredom etc. the emotions that are less dense will be easier to be brushed away. Same goes for positive spectrum as feelings, where some examples of dense feelings will be desire, love, lust etc. the greater the density of the feelings it will be less likely to let it go easily, we will want to hold onto it as it actually has a hold on us, we will be directed by it intensely, on the other side of the scale we can find feelings with less density as gratefulness, joy and content, as these feelings will visit us momentarily and will be forgotten much faster.
A side note - It's important to add that what I have given is a general base line of the range of densities of feelings and emotions, they have a natural density which determines the intensity of their presents and control on us, but we have a part in it as well, as the more we participate with a specific emotion or feeling we are giving it more power over us, so you can find on an individual level that a less dense feeling or emotion has great power over you, this doesn't necessarily mean it is very dense, you must look within self honesty and investigate how much have you been participating in it, and thus have given it more power over you.
The same can be said about emotions and feelings that one has walked through within writing, self forgiveness, and basically has transcended, or started to transcend the energetic experience, thus giving the specific emotion or feeling less power over self, in such a case it doesn't mean that it isn't dense by it's nature, it would just mean that you have walked it through a process and have taken directive principle over it - this is a cool point to consider when investigating emotions and feelings and their effect / influence / power they have over self from the perspective of not taking it personally, as some will be easier to walk through than others depending on their natural density, within this always investigating within self responsibility our participation in the emotions and feelings throughout the years, as our participation within them is a vital variable to the equation of how much power we have allowed it to have over us.
For further perspective on the point of emotions and feelings you are welcome to investigate the quantum mind eqafe interviews that explain specifically personality systems, and much much more - and, if you are new to eqafe interviews, allow yourself to listen unconditionally, allow yourself to go beyond what you believe to be true and check for yourself, within self trust, as you allow yourself to investigate the point through your own awareness of yourself - because this is what we all must get to within the principle of "man know thy self" - we must be able to check any point on ourselves and as ourselves, so that we are not lost in a sea of believes as knowledge and information but that we actually find ourselves on dry land, standing stable in a self knowing of who we are.
