If cold is not a thing then heat isn't either.

The only real gradation is the amount of energy.

Cold is the absence of heat, for example; neither hot nor cold exists, they are just terms we use to describe the state of something. It's like that with a lot of things: they don't need an opposite to exist.a reply to: Willtell

Then put your skin on ice and say it’s not a source of cold…


Post what happens to you

You geniuses who keep saying that cold is the absence of heat are clearly not getting it.

You’re describing what it is or how it gets to what it is, NOT its source of existence. You're taking the easy way out of actually a very profound question!


We know the source of heat—the sun


One can say that Heat is the absence of cold, fine great, that’s the quality of what it is but the quantity of its existence is from the sun.

Simile:

One says a black man is black because he is absent white….

That is ridiculous!

NO, a black man is black because of something called MELANIN, that’s the source of his blackness.


Now don’t come up with this…please:

White skin is merely the absence of melanin.

NO the “white” pigmentation is from certain genes


Now all you geniuses who posted

Cold is only the absence of heat


For homework you all have to write 10,000 times

WillTell is always right
WillTell is always right

WillTell is always right
WillTell is always right

etc…etc…etc

It's less energy.

I suspect you haven't studied physics in school or else where.

It seems the default reality in the universe is COLD! But where is the source of this cold.



Cold is what happens when there isn't any heat. Even when we deliberately make something cold (ie a fridge) all we are doing is moving the heat out of that area via the miracle of heat exchange systems.

The question should actually be "where is the source of heat?" - which can be more easily answered by pointing at the gazillions of stars in the night sky. All the bits that aren't being heated by a source of heat... are cold. In this case, that means "most of space".

One, the fact of the matter is that there are some instances we can clearly observe where cold comes from, such as in a freezer--the frozen water.

It is NOT based on a lack of heat…



Except when you turn the freezer off, the frozen water melts, therefore it cannot be the source of "the cold". The water is being kept frozen by a process - and that process involves the continual removal of heat from the freezer.

It's fairly clear at this stage that it's troll posting, because I do not believe that someone could have this level of disconnect from logic and reality and still be able to use a keyboard.

I already stated the source of heat.

Why is space default cold?

Space is realy full of helium from the suns. It is mostly liquid helium. Thus you get the -269C, This is known as the firmanent. That's why they have all those videos of peoples' rockets hitting a barrier at the edge of the atmosphere. Also, those bubbles you see in space footage is really helium escaping the earth's atmosphere.

Cold is a sensation, not a phenomenon. It is caused by -- please pay attention -- the transfer of heat from your body to other bodies or to the surrounding medium. Cold, unlike heat, is not a thing. It's just a feeling.


A phenomena is any kind of event


Passive or active it just has to be observable in terms of the definition


Therefore, the working of reality to produce cold or heat is a phenomenon

Space is neither cold nor warm.
Space has no temperature.

In your wisdom could temperature correlate to time?

Something such as this?

If I have a really nice wine it's about the fabric more than the flavour.

I guess the -273 is the background universe

and our perception would be from within the limitations of an expansion event that is occurring on the fabric of an unobservable 'whole'/'fractal'

And asking why it is cold is like asking why you cannot fly when you can swim...

a reply to: roadgravel

Exactly! Heading for nothing as we meld with the fabric of the whole beneath and to no time; or base time; the time line which our expansion event rolls in. Strong like a root. Seemingly no time from the perspective of our universe's time line.

Apparently the on/off switch is somewhere in between 100 seconds and 380000 yeasrs : )

Cold doesn't have an origin, there is nothing 'making things cold', like there is with heat.

Cold and hot are fuzzy logic points of human interpretation. To us absolute zero is cold, but to something that could survive at absolute zero, it's not. If it was 1 degree warmer such an entity could call that "hot" or "warm" depending on purely how it's "feeling".

The truth is energy states can cause heat and so everything is heat, nothing is cold. 1 degree above absolute zero is heat, not a "cold force". "Cold" doesn't even technically exist short of absolute zero being pretty damn cold probably. Wouldn't know. I might find it warm myself.

The cold is already there. Its not made by heat removing itself, its already cold. The sun just warms it up

Ever get BURN in the freezing cold?? it's all heat regardless of how it 'feels' to you.
But I guess i'll jump on the band wagon and devise where the warm temperatures are coming from by saying it's the sun and the Earth's core.

Maybe the absolute zero is the state of highest energy - but the Yin energy, the world of superfluid superconductors and negative electrons. Stillness as a way to speed of light travel. I don't see a reason to search for evil when it's rather female.
Btw. are they trying to destroy the universe in CERN or to create anti-matter, some dark anti-verse? Eh! Isn't it interresting that they need cooling to speed up the matter?


They don't cool the matter yo speed it up. They cool the magnets to help attain superconductivity. The magnets at CERN are cooled to 1.9K . In the superconducting state they can create much more powerful magnetic field.
