  1. Fourth and Long says:

    Δ 4 – Δ IV

    Impelled to study or comprehend physics, classically, and quantum, and thermodynamically, the equations are differential equations. It turns out its not the things in themselves that are important but the relationships between them, and thus their changes, ranging over ranges of area, distance, time, density, concentration, temperature, charge etc – rates of change: derivatives, gradients, Curls, Divergences and rates of the change of those respective rates of change – 2nd derivatives, Laplacians etc.

    Rapid or sudden rates of change hint at the concept of Impulse, (and also shock waves –such as waves /impulses traveling faster than vibrations do within a medium) treated sometimes with a third derivative; something like the rate of change of an acceleration. But overlooking 3rd degree derivatives or their multivariate counterparts (because 2nd degree multivariate differential equations are challenging enough), you have 2nd order difference Δ – delta equations and differential eqs d/dx, dd/dtdt etc. So the magnitude of those rates of change is what matters as well as their directions if they are vectors, or their tensor components of stress, strain, curvature etc.

    My point. Is that we are in a segment of late, of exceeding rapid change and rates of rates of change of important quantities and their qualities. And – left out of the above paragraph – the “forces”, energies, concentrations of matter, materials etc: the Right Hand Side of the equations, or inputs or potentials, charge and current distributions, chemical potentials etc, due to changing alignments, rationings, resource depletions or increases and spatio/temporal redistributions.

    So forecasting is next to impossible except to say there are amplifying and diminishing feedbacks and quantitatively very large motions and accelerations and their effects on the rhs materials, energies etc reasonably if not hard to imagine otherwise to be expected. It’s a recipe for an equation that you not only don’t want to solve but don’t know how to solve.

    The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath

    16 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”

    2 The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

    3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.

    4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
    5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:

    “You are just in these judgments, O Holy One,
    you who are and who were;
    6 for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,
    and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”
    7 And I heard the altar respond:

    “Yes, Lord God Almighty,
    true and just are your judgments.”
    8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire.
    9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.

    10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.

    12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.
    13 Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

    14 They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

    15 “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

    16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

    17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!”
    18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.
    19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath.
    20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds,[a] fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
