A heavy nucleus has larger rest mass energy than that of its two middle-weight fragments. It is thus energetically favorable for the heavy nucleus to disintegrate into 2 middleweight nuclei. However, before finally breaking into 2 parts, the heavy nucleus has to undergo a distortion which gradually increases to break the nucleus. The rest mass E1 of the heavy nucleus is larger than the combined rest mass E3 of its fragments but the energy E2 in the intermediate stage happens to be larger than E1. So, it is not simple for the heavy nucleus to break spontaneously. According to classical physics, the process is impossible unless energy is supplied to the heavy nucleus to reach the intermediate state. Once it reaches the intermediate state, it can break into 2 parts and release energy. But, the amount E2 - E1 has to be supplied to the heavy nucleus so that it may reach the intermediate state. So, left to itself the heavy nucleus will not break according to classical physics. On the other hand, in QM, if the final state has lesser energy than the energy in the initial state, there is a chance that the process will occur even if the intermediate state has energy greater than the initial state with no energy supplied from outside.


1) What is the above phenomenon known as?

2) The energy seems to be created from nothing - a violation of the law of energy conservation. From where did the extra energy come from in the intermediate state? Explain giving the mathematical basis.

Why are they considered a pest?
They cause massive damage to the undergrowth in a forest, including the eating of new trees before they have a chance to grow. In private areas, they eat the garden.

Deer overpopulation can be a serious problem, both for the ecology of the forest and for the deer themselves - starvation and epidemic disease, just to name two. We killed off the wolves because they tried to eat the sheep or cattle that we wanted to raise, so now the deer have no natural predators left.

Where I live, northeastern US, because of the extermination of natural predators such as wolves and mountain lions, there is an overpopulation of deer. They eat the forest understory, selectively eating species they find palatable, which effectively represses forest regeneration and drives the forest ecology. The deer also eat everyone's landscaping in their yards. And there are deer- auto collisions. On top of all that, they are carriers and proponents of deer ticks, which carry Lyme disease.
As a result, most people in our region recognize the problem, and are in favor of population reduction. However, that is easier said than done, because hunting is generally not safe, or in some cases even legal, near the populated suburban areas. Plus there is a very vocal minority of animal rights people who come out of the woodwork every time a hunt is announced. However, this is all changing, and over the last 10 years or so, people have been becoming more accepting of hunting as a management practice to counter the overpopulation.
If you are good enough (REALLY good!) with a bow, it is much harder for anyone to know that you are hunting - unless they catch you with a deer over your shoulders as you head back to the truck. No shots to hear.

Since energy in an isolated system like our universe(s) can neither be created nor destroyed (in keeping with the principle of conservation) but simply oscillates between subtle (QM vacuum) state and manifest state (multidimensional universe) with each phase lasting billions of years for all eternity then where is the question of an extra-cosmic creator, having no causal link with anything, creating the universe from nothing?

If we assume the existence of an extra-cosmic creator God then we move into an infinite regress which is illogical and besides how do we logically explain the existence of energy/matter/consciousness having sprung into existence from "nothing"?

Nothing cannot be defined, cannot be imagined, cannot be tested and cannot be experienced and so does not exist.

Evidently, energy, matter and consciousness are the only entities that can be accounted for in the whole of existence when viewed, cogitated upon, experimented and experienced.

So, everything in existence, from the noumenon to the phenomena, should be expressed, quantized and experienced exclusively in terms of the triune of energy, matter and consciousness that form an integrated whole.

This is the reality.

Words like extra-cosmic God, spirit, ruach, nothing, creation from nothing etc are misnomers.

I simply laugh out loud when I hear deluded and naive religious nuts asking atheists or nonbelievers to "disprove" the existence of God.

The onus is fully on the believers in God to provide evidence about this deity (God) since when we investigate nature and its embodied laws and natural phenomenon like life we find no evidence whatsoever to support any belief in a creator God.

Nature and its laws and its phenomena and its living forms are constituted exclusively of energy, matter and consciousness that gradually emerge from a state of singularity at various levels of the cosmic hierarchy.

The whole of cosmic existence with its innate operations is based completely on the triune of energy, matter and consciousness and so everything in existence should be explained exclusively in terms of energy, matter and consciousness.

Whereas, belief in religion rests on irrational ideas uncorroborated by evidence like:

1) "spirit" that can neither be defined nor is there the tiniest shred of evidence in support of it,

2) the state of nothing that can neither be defined nor supported by an atom of evidence,

3) extra-cosmic God having no causal link with anything in existence which is illogical and for which there's no evidence, and

4) creation from nothing whose causal mechanism cannot be explained.

So, atheists, who take their realistic stand on proven universals like energy, matter and consciousness to explain the whole of existence are justified in debunking the very idea of God and the rest of the religious mumbo that have nothing to do with the universal realities based on the workings of energy, matter and consciousness.

The day believers can produce evidence of spirit, the state of nothing, the mechanism of creation from nothing and of uncausal extra-cosmicism then only can atheists begin taking religious claims seriously but until then religion is just a laughing stock and believers a bunch of irrational jokers.

Shabbat Shalom.

Now dear Frijoles don't go to Russia.

"But Russia last year upset the West and human rights activists by banning what it called the promotion of homosexuality among minors. Calls for a mass boycott of the games have failed, but the row has clouded the build-up to the event.

Critics say the law is discriminatory and part of a rolling back of human rights and democratic freedoms under Putin, who has taken a more conservative course on social issues since returning to the presidency in mid-2012."

"There is no ban on non-traditional forms of sexual interaction between people. We have a ban on PROPAGANDA of homosexuality," Putin told a meeting with young volunteers preparing for the games."

Well, here is the rub. Since now that have you grasped the concept, pursuant to our lengthy previous conversations, it is time to move it up a notch.
Minhagim (plural of minhag) are actually part of Halacha (Jewish law - literally translated as "the way") too.
Jewish law consists of both mitzvot (commandments that derive directly from the text (bible)) and minhagim. Mitzvot are universally binding while minhagim are not.
Much like the religion I grew up with - made up of "scripture and tradition." Though much of the tradition may be binding as well. Various notions around the pope are clearly not in the bible. And so on.

So most pick and choose what to follow.

By your own reasoning then, all Christians have some

But you agree he has converted form the religion of Judaism
