Go Figure...H2O

A long time ago, like during the Jurassic, I took a class with a Professor who could prove the Existence of God by applying, of all things, Thermodynamic Equations.

The First Law of Thermodynamics holds that there is Conservation of Energy; it can neither be Created nor Destroyed, only Converted from one form to another. The Second Law of Thermodynamics, while not violating the First Law, holds that Entropy always Increases, such that the amount of usable energy in a system dissipates over time. The Second Law is a unique law of physics in that it deals with Time and its Direction. The Third Law of Thermodynamics states that as a system approaches Absolute Zero the Entropy of the System approaches a well-defined Minimum (a Constant, but not Zero). {Absolute Zero, the thermodynamic null point, is the point at which atoms transmit no thermal energy, or are completely at rest and cannot get any colder. This is defined as 0 K, where K is the thermodynamic absolute temperature Kelvin scale.}

APageInTheLife deals with selected topics, but the main idea behind almost every post has to do with Language and Meaning (and of course, God), so it would not be surprising to find that Thermodynamics also drives or applies to Linguistics.

In a recent paper Nature, Evolution, Culture, Free will and Morals: A Thermodynamic Singularity, Charles H.M. Beck, Professor Emiretus Dept. of Psychology, University of Alberta- Edmonton, Canada writes:

"Human cultural activity in the form of artistic
expression and aesthetic appreciation may be viewed as manifestations
of the Second Law
. The evolution of human
language provided a basis for the accumulation, storage and transmission
of information and is widely regarded as a key element in the
development of human culture.

The concept of the transformation of energy has been successfully
applied to linguistic communication
. Art forms, encapsulated
universally in ritualized communal celebrations involving decoration,
storytelling, music, dance/drama performance, and feasting,
serve to increase the rate of energy transfer in human groups
compared to the group member working individually.

....To sum up, salient features of human culture
including language
, artistic expression and appreciation,
spiritual experiences and life satisfaction may be seen as a manifestations of effective energy transformation."

What does this preamble about linguistics, thermodynamics, and God have to do with the subject of this post, Water, you might wonder?

It leads us to Question how we can be in any position to Say anything about God, when we don't even have a very good understanding about the most abundant substance found on Earth--Water (H20).
Since the late 1940's scientists, either through simulations or experiments, have noticed that bulk water, when supercooled below its melting temperature (TM) at about 235 K (below which it crystallizes), approaches a Thermodynamic Singularity (TS) at 228K. It is during its supercooled metastable state that the anomalies in water's thermodynamic properties become pronounced, showing a power law divergence toward the singular temperature 228 K.

Now, we don't have to cool water down that far to observe 'anomolous' behavior, since we are all familiar with its other 'anomalous property' of becoming less dense, not more, when it is cooled down to its solid form, ice. Water expands to occupy 9% more volume as ice, which is why ice floats on liquid water.

But what is remarkable at this critical triple point, 228 K, is that supercooled metastable water undergoes large structural fluctuations and fragile-to-strong dynamic cross-over (FST). The fragile-to-strong dynamic transition (FST) of bulk liquid water at about 228 K results from the structure change at the thermodynamic liquid-liquid phase transition from normal H2O to strongly tetrahedral H2O.

Surah 2 Al-Baqara (The Calf)
وَالْمُطَلَّقَاتُ يَتَرَبَّصْنَ بِأَنفُسِهِنَّ ثَلاَثَةَ قُرُوَءٍ
وَلاَ يَحِلُّ لَهُنَّ أَن يَكْتُمْنَ مَا خَلَقَ اللّهُ فِي أَرْحَامِهِنَّ
إِن كُنَّ يُؤْمِنَّ بِاللّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ
وَبُعُولَتُهُنَّ أَحَقُّ بِرَدِّهِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ إِنْ أَرَادُواْ إِصْلاَحًا
وَلَهُنَّ مِثْلُ الَّذِي عَلَيْهِنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ
وَلِلرِّجَالِ عَلَيْهِنَّ دَرَجَةٌ
وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكُيمٌ 2:228

Seemingly, Sign 2:228 deals with family law in that it mentions divorcing women, while awaiting a divorce, are expected to يَتَرَبَّصْنَ بِأَنفُسِهِنَّ 'lie in wait' for 3 periods (3 menstrual cylces) prior to finalizing the divorce in the event that the woman may be carrying a viable pregnancy, in which case the couple should wait until the child is born and the pregancy should not be concealed just to get on with the divorce. If she decides she wants a reconciliation, it is expected that she and her husband work things out, but while both the man and the woman have the same rights in finalizing the divorce, the man is said to have "a precedent," in the matter; literally stated وَلِلرِّجَالِ عَلَيْهِنَّ دَرَجَةٌ as "a degree above her (the devorcee/not women in general)" (which brings us back to cooking, but not so fast).

But, if family issues are not a concern for the rest of us, Sign 2:228 is still germane to our experience here on Earth; because let's face it, not everything on Earth has to be about men and women and their relationships; there is a whole bunch of other stuff out there--like Water. And Sign 2:228, while on the surface is setting out procedures during divorce, is simultaneously propounding everything to do with metastable water and its supercooled anomolies at 228 K, by specifically mentioning مُطَلَّقَاتُ 'absolute', بِرَدِّ 'chillness/coldness/refrigeration,' ثَلاَثَةَ قُرُوَءٍ 'triple point/period', أَرْحَامِهِنَّ 'matrices' and a host of other terms connected with metastable H2O under investigation in confined spaces such as nano pores,* including that during certain simulations the number of successful molecular transfers for liquid-liquid equilibrium at this thermodynamic singularity (228 K) is about 2 N whereas it is at least 10 N or greater at higher temperatures for liquid-vapor equilibrium (N is the total number of molecules in the simulation; for liquid-vapor and liquid-liquid equilibrium in the cited reference, N was 850 and 1600, respectively).

With this approach, Sign 2:228 may be understood in a less anthropologic standpoint. For instance, the word مُطَلَّقَاتُ with a primary meaning 'divorcees' or 'females about to have a marriage annulled or get absolutely/completely seperated/detached/distanced/liberated/freed from an existing relationship/connection' may lead to the consideration that 'female' in engineering terms describes a part that has a recess, designed to receive a corresponding projecting part; and in botany the 'female' is the part of the flower that has carpels and no stamens, and produces seeds.

The words 'divorce' and 'absoluteness' are related in that the Latin 'absolutum' means 'loosened from' or 'seperated,' and this is an important connection to make since in mathematical logic the word مُطَلَّقَاتُ , in addition to meaning 'absolute', also means 'complete' such that what is being discussed is not 'partial absoluteness' in a mathematical sense. And while something is said to be absolute if it has the same truth value in each of some class of structures (or models; where structure consists of a set along with a collection of finitary functions and relations which are defined on it), the many meanings of the word مُطَلَّقَاتُ (mutliqat) also include: unbounded, unconditional and infinite. And it is the word 'infinite' which points to the special 'infinatiry" case usually found in "the logic proposed for quantum mechanics, which depending on the use of subspaces of Hilbert space as propositions, operations such as taking the intersection of subspaces are used," since in general this fails as a finitary operation.

Having described these 'divorcees' as 'recessed' particles (holes?) in this manner/matter, Sign 2:228 proscribes that they ' يَتَرَبَّصْنَ بِأَنفُسِهِنَّ ' (yatarbssna bianfusihin), which literally means 'sneak/lurk by/within themselves.' Taken in context, the meaning is clearly that they 'lie in waiting by themselves' or have no 'intercourse/contact/communication' for a 3-month period prior to 'divorcing'.

The root word 'tarbas' also means 'thrips' which is a very small insect, one of whose defining characteristics is that it is very small and likes to hide in confined spaces, making it very difficult to detect. So, this can also be understood as a defining characteristic of the subject here.

It is interesting to note that another meaning to the word yatarbas is 'ambush' which points to a property of a 'surprise attack' or 'trap unexpectedly' as well as to 'enmesh' or 'entangle.' That they 'yatarbassn bianfusihn' is reflexive, which means that they 'conceal themselves.'

So, moving right along, the alotted time for this type of 'furtive' behavior concerning 'divorcing women' is 3-menstrual cycles. For the non-anthropologic counterpart discussed here, it is to be '3-periods' or cycles. That menstruation is mentioned with the deliberate use of the word ' قُرُوَءٍ' (quruwatin) is intriguing since a 'period' not only pertains to 'time' and a 'cycle' or 'phase,' but menstruation is very much tied in with the 'lunar orbit'. This indicates that a physical entity is going around a center, much like the Moon orbits the Earth, experiencing regular displacement and not just that of it being a time cycle as would be expected in, say, a sine function.

Knowing that the Moon is strongly associated with tides, what's being described here is also related to tidal effects. Tides can be described very effectively using gravitational forces and friction, and tidal levels may be successfully forecast using chaos theory (local models).

the 'male' counterpart/dual to the 'female' behavior:

'a bump/kick up' etc., which seems to indicate that this activity leads to raising the 'male' a step/quantum up to the 'female' level that had been established when the matter under consideration 'restructured' or 'reformed'...} This begs the question, 'Is there a Mathematician in the House?'

...not exactly what I need a Mathematician for, but Thanks!

And I'm almost certain the lesson is not lost on physicists working with condensed matter, since the male/female mentioned throughtout 2:228, while indexed to water's supercooled liquid-liquid equilibrium at 228k, behave like 'excitons' in other systems which at low temperature and low pressure have anticorellated entropy and specific volume fluctuations, like semiconductors SiO2 and GeO2, and other tetrahedrally-coordinated liquids.

In conclusion, the Attributes of the 'Most Dominant Force (Allah)' mentioned here are:

وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكُيمٌ
'hakim' and '3aziz' which indicate that It Reinforces (Boosts) Discreetly (in a Subtle/Judicious way).
