THE UNIVERSAL IMBALANCE PRINCIPLE - FIRST ITERATION
"sooner or later, any valid theorem is going to be invalidated."
About 8000 years ago appears the first Civilization of our ancient history: Sumer (near
Baghdad). As it is mentioned in A14, the Sumerians were incredibly--better said, stunningly and
unexplainably--advanced for those primitive days. Today, we still use a few extraordinary Sumerian scientific
concepts such as:
1. the 360 degrees geometrical circle, with one degree having 60 minutes, and one minute having 60 seconds--and
then each second was further divided in 60 subdivisions, and then each subdivision was further subdivided in 60
. . . ;
2. the 24 hour day, with one hour having 60 minutes, and one minute having 60 seconds--and
then each second was
further divided in 60 subdivisions, and then each subdivision was further subdivided in 60
. . .
You see, the Sumerian Civilization used a base 60 Numeric System--we use a
base 10 Numeric System, the decimal one. Sumerian
science was further (partially) adopted by the Egyptian Civilization, then by the Hellenic one, and then by the
Romans. The Romans have preserved (some of) it up to very close to our modern days.
We should all be very grateful to that mysterious, wonderful Sumerian Civilization:
the 360 degrees geometrical circle is the
FIRST WHEEL of our Human Civilization!

is the true, magic word: it means life, development, wealth, space
travel, contacts with alien civilizations, and . . . everything. To us, now, energy is particularly important
because we are faced with a terrible energetic crisis: the fossil oil
reserves started to become depleted!
Only a few people know what the oil crisis actually means, and that is not good, because people should know what is going
to come. For us, oil means:
1. fuels for transportation;
2. production of electrical energy;
3. raw materials for the plastics industry;
4. raw materials for many (better said, most) chemical products; for example, medicinal drugs,
The good news is, we do have technological means to compensate for each of the above
criteria without any fossil oil--and
we could do things even better! The bad news is, we cannot change our
economy towards using new sources of energy/power because we do not have a strong, united,
healthy, social mentality.
The spectrum of the coming oil crisis has appeared the first time in 1974. At that time, the little, diplomatic
oil-crisis was solved behind closed doors--details are not even important. What is important is, although the
World was well aware about the future developments of the next oil-crisis, and people wanted to implement changes that
would curb down oil consumption, things went in fact exactly in the wrong direction! In that glorious year, 1974,
was first presented officially as a perfect alternative to fossil oil, and that has ended the
first oil-crisis. However, 31
years later [41 years in 2015] we still do not have a working hydrogen infrastructure, although 31 years
[41 years] in the life of a
crisis means a lot of time wasted!
The actual and the future oil-crises are important because they will disrupt our comfortable way of life. They
will bring inflation, and the costs of living will increase to absurd levels. That will generate (and it
generates) great social unrest. However, whenever the oil price goes up, the most part of the money are
just very, very hefty benefits for a few individuals. What we are dealing with, during the actual and future oil-crises, is in fact
a social crisis. There were and there are many solutions to the technological oil-crisis, but they face a fierce
opposition from a handful of individuals who make now, and in the future, enormous benefits from the depleted oil reserves.
Amazingly, despite the fact that they are just a bunch of rapacious,
greedy, brainless individuals, they win the fight against the entire
Particularly interesting is, the vast majority of the people (the voters) don't care a bit about any oil-crises,
although they will be the ones to suffer most. Even worse, the democratic majority supports exactly those few
wealthy individuals who are pushing them further down into poverty! That
exemplifies perfectly clear that our social education is
well below the minimum required level for a healthy, prosperous Civilization.
Now, do not worry because we have no intention to discuss about the fossil oil, or about
any (better) social structures--not now.
Our focus in this article is PURE ENERGY, as it is defined in Physics. The first, interesting aspect is, we are able
to measure energy quantitatively. From the quality point of view, however, we use
a lot of names for energy:
"exergy", "anergy", "internal energy", "energetic levels" and so on, but
the truth is, we have no idea what that energy thing really means, or is!
I was very young when I discovered the famous Einstein's energy equation, and I was
deeply impressed, for a while. At that time, I believed that materialist-dialectic philosophy was able to explain, perfectly clear,
everything about our
Life and Universe. However, Einstein's equation revealed that matter was in fact a form, or a sum of forms, of
energies. I asked myself, "What is energy, as seen from the materialist-dialectic point of view?"
My answer, then, was very clear, "An idea!"
Soon I discovered that Einstein's famous energy equation is just a childish mechanical speculation. What Mr. Einstein did is,
he started from the existing formula of Kinetic Energy which defines any moving mechanical body.
W = 1/2 * m * v2
The above formula is currently known and used in grade 9 Physics today, and during Mr. Einstein's days. The next
"thing" Mr. Einstein did was to replace the speed "v" with the speed of light "c"
which he has defined as being "a constant", and the maximum limit possible.
W = 1/2 * m * c2
However, dividing a constant doesn't make much
sense, therefore he simply took out the 1/2 division and . . . BINGO!
E = m * c2
It is obvious to anyone who knows a bit of elementary Physics that Einstein's energy formula is just a bad joke. The
above formula refers to a mechanical body moving at light-speed; however,
the internal energy contained in
the atoms of that body is billion times greater than its mechanical
kinetic energy. Einstein's famous energy equation is
just a childish (a grade nine level) mechanical joke--not even a good one.
Now, particularly because it was "mechanical" in nature, that
equation was quickly accepted and "understood" by everybody--and
particularly by people who knew jack about Physics. Next, Mr. Einstein became overnight a
genius! Sure; why not? A genius of the fools, though.
Energy appears following the potential difference of two states: one positive and one negative. One
single state is not sufficient to generate energy. In order to exist,
energy needs, first of all, a difference of energetic potential. For us, the humans, it is easy to use energy,
only it is difficult to understand it.
Our environment has a certain temperature range, a gravity vector, and even oxygen: these conditions create one
side of the energetic potential. What is left for us to discover, and
then to exploit, is the independent, (the true) two-sides
energetic potentials, but this is another story.
Now, the abstract, mathematical notion of an energetic potential, or the gradient of energy,
needs to have some concrete basis, something more . . . substantial,
because potential difference in itself doesn't help us much. We need a
term for those two energetic states, and because there is none, we took
the liberty of naming it Primary-Energies, or Primordial Energies. To get a visual
picture, try to imagine many layers of "something" very cold, invisible, and
totally inert, energetically. Of course, this picture is very foggy and
confusing, but at the level of Primary-Energies things are more ideological
in nature than material. That level is what we name the
Fact is, the Primary-Energies are not quite ideas; they do need to have a true, real,
nature of some sort. However,
what is interesting is, there must be something else, lower than these Primary-Energies, which forces the Primary-Energies
to interact intelligently with each other. That interaction creates the atomic components we know,
the Atomic Universe comes into our material existence. For us, the atoms are capable of generating measurable
quantities of heat, light, and other energies.
So, what could be further down from the Primary-Energies? At one particular moment in time we considered that
there are some "factors", more like ideas, which are driving the Primary-Energies. However, those
idealistic factors do have some remarkable particularities which deny, again, the idealistic notion: first of all,
they are a certitude! Naturally, because nobody ever though of this before,
we took again the liberty to name those factors, the Certitude Factors.
The idea is, those Certitude Factors exist, and they have a specific purpose: they "push"
of the Subatomic to create the Atomic Universe. Of course, the new thorny issue was: why do the Certitude Factors
exist? Well, they exist because they are Certitude Factors. Ha, ha! [This is
just a joke.] No, the Certitude Factors
exist because there are a few, very important, "Fundamental Reasons" which force
Certitude Factors into existence. These
Reasons are defined in the Universal Imbalance Principle.
Now, we are closer to the roots of things, although not quite. As it is explained in
Learn Hardware Firmware and Software Design, there are methods of dealing with projects that may
seem to be above our power to execute them, or to understand them. It is
described there a practical design method: we start with the Global
Picture, then we corner our problem, theoretically, down to its very
roots. Sure, many aspects remain unknown and unclear after that first
therefore the next step is to go back to the Global Picture. Next . . .
"Those are just SF literature speculations!" the critics will cry
out loud. Well, dear friends, let us point
out to some true, real evidences. The first one is the Big-Bang (or the Little-Pop) theory. Although that is just a
theory, the fact that we do exist, now, means the Big-Bang itself also happened some time ago. Think of what has
determined, or pushed, that NOTHING to become our Atomic Universe.
The second argument is that little piece of rock mentioned in
A8. Try to imagine the entire
Atomic Universe is only dead rock--sooner or later we are going to end up that way. That dead matter Universe requires
fantastic quantities of energies to simply exist, and they come again from
. . . NOWHERE! Of course, there are many
more disturbing evidences and, possibly, we will summarize them in these web pages in the coming articles;
however, the best thing to do is, read our SF books.
