One of the concepts that will fascinate, and therefore, drive the progress of post-modern physics and our understanding of the universe is the concept of zero inertia. In physics, we are already familiar with such an application of “zero” to our study of heat, where we refer to something as “absolute zero”.
“Absolute zero” in physics is the temperature where the entropy and the enthalpy of an ideal cool gas are at their minimum value, which is usually taken as zero. On the Celcius scale this temperature is – 273.15°C while it is 0°K on the Kelvin scale.
So, in thermodynamics, we already have one interesting application and understanding of the importance of zero, which is considered the minimum numerical quantity of temperature. However, in post-modern physics, we go further to apply it to electrodynamics as the concept of zero inertia. Both are not the same.
The concept of zero inertia, which literally means the absence of inertia, is what applies as a limit of motion in the universe, just like light and gravity. And though it refers to the zero proportion of inertia, it still exists as a real phenomenon in the universe.The concept of zero inertia, which literally means the absence of inertia, is what applies as a limit of motion in the universe, just like light and gravity.Click To Tweet
Now, in post-modern physics, we are taught that all motion involves inertia, even uniform motion which we have thought doesn’t. Light behaves the way it does because it is a limit of inertia in the universe. No matter how we move or observe light, it maintains a constant speed because of the afore stated.
The same applies to gravity upon the Earth surface, in that no matter what differences in mass two bodies may possess, they would fall to the ground at the same acceleration or rate. Post-modern physics is informing us that these mysterious, long-standing observations of light and gravity are because these entities are limits of inertia in the universe.The mysterious, long-standing observations of light and gravity are because these entities are limits of inertia in the universe.Click To Tweet
With this understanding, we go further to understand that zero inertia which is what ideally describes rest in the universe is also a limit of motion in almost the same regard as light and gravity.
I said “almost” because of the possible attainability of zero inertia by matter and the subsequent phenomena this unique situation produces in the universe.
So, zero inertia is a real entity just like light and gravity, but we don’t sense or observe it like we observe light and gravity in the universe because, obviously, we are referring to zero inertia. But at the same time, zero inertia is real and it is responsible for certain phenomena in the universe.
Zero inertia is as real, fundamental and universal like light and gravity, and in post-modern physics, we bring ourselves to focus on its importance to universal dynamics.
So, imagine that possibly we have a wave of some sort that carries zero inertia or if zero inertia were associated with a wave or any other observable manifestation, we would see that such a wave or manifestation would behave like light and gravity, in that certain properties of its dynamics won’t change relative to our state of motion or property of matter.
To further understand the concept of zero inertia, let’s make an important reference to post-modern physics. Now, during ponderable acceleration, we sense inertia. We are informed that light, in this case, is the maximum inertia or resistance to accelerated motion.
With that being understood, zero inertia becomes the lower limit of inertia and also as real as light, which in this case is the upper limit of inertia. We must, therefore, understand through post-modern physics the concept of zero inertia and the active participatory role it plays in our understanding and experience of motion in the universe.
Until next time,
I will be here.
