1 would think that since the many Created materials here seemed to of started from a highly charged-energized and heated process that the Created medium or Abyss of which the many galaxy, nebula, star systems and their many islands/planets & moons formed in would be of opposite temperature overall to help sustain the Created materials as they would naturally cool after said heated processes over time.

Outta box, in reverse if a universe was Created by similar highly charged-energized and cooling processes the medium or Abyss used to sustain that system would be created as a heated medium to help sustain the created materials as they warm, over time...

Antigravity is the source of cold. And to static machines, the most envied power of heat dissipation.

Cold and hot are just differences in energy levels in matter relative to the observer. To a virtual particle living above the zero point looks mighty inviting and toasty. It wishes it were as warm as -270whatever.

The vacuum of space is cold because it has low energy levels.

The source of cold is having low energy.




Or you can look at it in a biblical sense. God in the first testament is pretty cold. Smite this, burn that, sacrifice your kids. Thats pretty damned cold. And god is everywhere so there you have it. God is on cold mofo and therefor so is the universe. Thats why its hip to be coooool. Closer to god n all that.

I always understood it like this. Heat is energy, so lack of energy is cold. The void of space is almost devoid of energy (besides quantum fluctuations, which generate a tiny amount of energy) so it is devoid of heat which makes it very cold. The closer You get to something that is producing energy, like a star the hotter it will get.

You’re describing what it is or how it gets to what it is, NOT its source of existence.


OK


the source of its existence is the human mind, it created a term to describe a sensation.

The human mind is the source of the cold.





Why is space default cold?



its not.

Yeah i was going to get into virtual particles. Zero point and quantum fluctuations but figured thats for the next class.

Glad you brought it up though. If the op looks into that hell find a better answer as yo why space is the temp it is.

That’s good, very good, I was thinking along those lines myself


That goes somewhat into metaphysics which is my main field of study, how all this is somehow is interconnected.


Were finding that out the hard way

Maybe the question should be changed to

Why is cold the default field in the universe

This question might be better inside the philosophy and metaphysics forum

I look at it as a fundamental observation of reality or God itself because we are witnessing something very very basic and fundamental, the default state of the universal field of being in the physical universe.


I got a great pm from, I don’t know if he or she wants to be known so I wont say, at this time who it is or what it says until I get permission to publish it.

Calling "cold" a field and a default one, doesn't seem realistic.

It seems you are picking a level of energy and believing it should be a different level, or something along that thought.

Cold is just lack of heat energy. It's not its own thing and doesn't need a source. It's the default condition.

Cold, as you put it, is the lack (relative) of vibration of particles in atoms. It isn't generated anywhere.

Science knows that everything has a source then what you say is unscientific.


Or more interestingly, the consequence of your statement is that cold is God

I always assumed cold was just the absence of heat, so why do you need a source that exists to be a negative? Without heat, the universe would just be one temperature. Absolute zero.

Then heat is a lack of cold

Fine

The mystery though is we know the source of one side of the equation, that is the source of heat

But we know not the physical source of cold...
Just saying its a lack of heat doesn't answer the question, I'm afraid



Yes, it does actually. Do you understand basic physics?

No, cold is the absence of heat.

Just like darkness is the absence of light. Neither cold nor darkness truly exist.
