Back to the quanta, for a moment (a moment is a measure of time, so it's interesting that pun found it's way into this conversation), so we can discuss heat, and also gyroscopes. Take a look at a couple of burning matches when you bring them in close proximity to one another. The heat engine of each one of these doesn't readily merge into the other, there is a momentary discussion, or even repulsion, of the other for a moment, then they join and create a much larger pool... or quanta, of their energy. The indication is that heat is related to exchange of matter into or out of a quanta. It brings us back to the fact that all things are continually asked by the universe "of what are you capable of being a part?", and that brings us back to the fact that states of matter are what determine what you are capable of being a part of. Picture a block of ice floating in a bath of water. The ice is a different state, a solid, and doesn't participate as readily in surface tensions, but they are the same chemical. This should point us to the periodic table of elements, a table that should be designed to show how any element will react in any environment. The table needs to be more focused on states of matter at all conditions, and could be called a quanta chart of the elements. It should be layed out based on willingness to participate, which will point to further understandings of physical characteristics of elements.
One last example I came across last night while doing the dishes is a small of bowl of water floating inside a larger bowl of water inside a sink full of water. When rocked, some of the water splashes out of the smaller bowl and the water in it sloshes back and forth with the same tensions we see in gyroscopes. This play of quanta choosing their state is probably what creates the force that every gyroscope exerts. A rudimentary gyroscope could be created with a series of pools such as this. - Edit: Did a quick search and found this Loopa gravity defying bowl: On the right track dudes. Of what are you capable of being a part?

What money?

What can we learn from Pete and Repeat? Pete has been a law abiding American citizen. (The Dude abides.) And he has still found himself short on a dime in the new world economy. The old recession and depression cyclicality of economies has turned Pete into the same old Repeat. It's left poor Pete wondering where's the money? Show me the MONEY!

So, here's a lesson, Pete, about the new way to compete. Ask yourself "What money?".

This is a global economy, baby, you gotta dance around 24 time zones if you want to survive. Your money is not the same as the Aussie Dollar, or the Japanese Yen, or the British Pound. Your money is far different. Your money is an exact reflection of your local economy, right down to the door knocker on your domicile. If you could get the Treasury Department to put a new phrase on the greenback you better tell them you want it to say "This bill is legal tender for all debts within five miles of (insert your home address here)".

The only place your money is good is at your vicinity. If you want the reasons for this, ask the truck driver that brings the groceries to your local supermarket, ask your landlord, ask the neighbor's landlord, and ask the property tax man. All these dudes will tell you that the value of your money is a function of your proximity to these other dudes. They will all say that your money is measured in a widending arc from your front door knocker. For instance, ask the guy who lives in a penthouse on Park Ave in New York what his landlord thinks his rent should be and why? Then ask the Iowa farmer in the middle of a DesMoines sunflower field. The reason the address assigns the value to the legal tender is because you gotta pay to play, and some games cost more than others. It leaves poor Pete without a leg to stand on when he gets his paycheck, because somebody who's legal tender has more worth than his legal tender doesn't care that his buck is worth less... (worthless at this point).

How then, can Pete get more for his bucks? He's either gotta move from a higher area to a lower, and then move again, and then move again. Or he's gotta get his country, and the rest of the world to realize that this is how economies work, and do something to schedule and regulate the value and strength of his legal tender from one locale to other locales. It's creating an ratio in the currency, so a buck is really a buck, is really a similar piece of legal tender anywhere in that country.

Pete likes this because he likes where he lives. It also means he can curtail the practice of slave labor, which is what buying labor in a cheaper area is tantamount to, when a New York size dollar bill pays a person to make a pair of tennis shoes in Indonesia, or a telephone company hires people in India to spend an hour on the phone in America.

What money? Pete's money. Earned here, spent there? No sir. No thank you, sir. Pete says "Legal tender by trade schedule" should be printed on his money. Let's make it happen, Cap'n.

Enough of this Foolishnecessity

Who cares about economies. Here's some more about the way gravity and water interact, which we will take to imply things about matter in general. Back to the example of what it is like when a jet plane is about to touch down onto the tarmac. This is where the human has the best chance of really visually seeing the effect of the gravity-time-matter interaction. This is where the human can see with his or her own eyes, that he or she is part and parcel of a quanta, part and parcel of the jet plane in this example, but then just as the wheels are about to touch down the view out the window changes and time speeds up for the viewer and things go by faster and faster, and then click, you're now part and parcel of Earth by that contact. And that participation, which we know as relativity, is what flows through everything around us in relation to one another, to form our sphere of influence. If you think of a kid blowing bubbles, the surface tension caused by blowing through the bubble wand closes as the bubble forms, then floats away. That surface tension is like all surface tensions, a product of atoms working together to conserve energy by creating a quanta out of themselves, (liquids have an easy time of this because they flow but they're also sticky). A millileter size bubble of mercury pools up with so much surface tension that it's like a small sphere sitting on a table. Take your hand and smack it flat on the surface of a pool or lake or bath tub and you'll spank the surface tension out of the immediate area, and you'll channel that energy out in a wave equivalent to the bouyancy you removed from the equation. As the surface tension of that disturbed area assesses its new situation and bounces back, it will recreate the shared equilibrium it found earlier. But this system of removing the tension and bouncing back is interesting from the gravitational standpoint, because it points out an interaction between human hand and quanta. This is where the advantage over gravity will come from. Fluxuating the surface tension of a quantity of liquid should prove useful tool in causing an unknown state within some of the material, allowing a small win to be made in the fight to conquer gravity. Compounding this scenario could provide enough areas of unknown stability to milk a small amount of lift out of the universe. That amount should equal the number of atoms that don't know where they are, or who they relate to. A moment of lost relativity is weightlessness. Much the same as an electron is an "unknown" place around an atom, this would be akin to "shocking" the atoms into becoming missing, as far as gravity is aware, from the surface tension shared energy pool.
