Waternature.com: Implosion / Explosion - A Side by Side Comparison

Implosion / Explosion.......A side by side comparison
There has been a need expressed by our readers to distinguish the difference between implosive and explosive energy.

What is implosive energy?
What is explosive energy?

Is not energy, energy? Yes of course it is. These two terms are used to distinguish direction of movement that dictate how energy interacts with its surroundings, not necessarily the energy itself.

Why is there a need to determine energy's direction?
Simply put: one direction of movement is involved with friction, resistance, noise and heat (explosive), the other direction results in a decrease of friction and resistance, with an increase in silence and coolness. Schools, science, public knowledge and almost all institutions of technology are for the most part unaware of the movement of energy and matter that takes place in an environment where there is a decrease in friction. Of course, if we were aware of such systems, technology would not be as we know it today.

When we watch a fire and feel its heat we are in the presence of energy movement. We know the fire to be the source and we know the energy (as heat in this case) is radiating outward towards us. This is a fundamental trait of an explosive action. The thermal energy, or heat, is expanding outward away from the fire. If we were to accelerate or speed up this process of expansion we would get an explosion, caused by the rapid expansion of gasses in the air. Any source of heat, noise, (our cars, planes, televisions, computers, motors, and almost all of our technology) if observed, radiates energy in an outwards direction. Each and every one of us views a multitude of these examples in our everyday life. All of these are examples of energy in "exploding" or "dispersing" directions.

Can energy move in an inward direction?
Is it possible for energy to become concentrated instead of being dispersed? When matter contracts because it is getting cooler, is its energy traveling outwards or inwards? Does heat migrate towards the cold? When we watch water go down the drain, it appears to be collapsing in on itself in a vortical motion. The natural form of a tornado or hurricane also draws inwards, sucking anything unfortunate enough to be in its path towards its centre. If explosive forces are characterized by expansion and radiant properties, then implosive forces, (simply the opposite) have characteristics such as contraction and absorption.

Simply, explosive indicates an outwards direction, implosive an inwards direction.

Direction: What is direction? Why do we care?
The Oxford dictionary refers to direction as: "the line or course on which something is moving or is aimed to move or along which something is pointing or facing".

When we read a definition for any particular word we still must understand the relationship it has with other meanings and in all practicability, examples of these interactions. In most cases we are referring to a direction with references as variable units within space (inches, kilometers, etc). With the concept of the circle to exhibit characteristics in all directions from a point of origin, each of these directions has an opposite direction and both can be depicted as an angle in degrees of a circle from a common point. Such systems of direction are commonplace for instruments of navigation such as a compass.
Ultimately, if there is a space, there is direction throughout it.

A perfect circle or sphere is a very unique shape but is none the less an abstract concept. However, circular forms occur quite frequently. A spiral that moves around an axis is rotating throughout three hundred and sixty degrees; however it is expanding or contracting along its axis. If we assume that two opposite directions share fundamental characteristics, we have erred. Observations of matter in spiral movement show a unique unequal balance between two inverse directions along the spiral curve. One movement imploding upon itself, drawing in, trying to get to its centre, the other expanding and constantly trying to dissipate away. These two movements have characteristics of a truly inverse proportion.

It is of special note that all motion consists of both imploding and exploding counterparts. However, there is always a predominate form that takes place based on the manner (implosive or explosive) in which matter has been moved. Whereas, there is always an explosive element within a predominantly implosive movement and equally there is always an implosive element within a predominantly explosive movement. Not unlike the concept of a little yang in the yin and a little yin within the yang, for those familiar with the ancient Taoist symbol of balance.

Movement of energy is either going outwards and expanding or inwards and condensing. This understanding is of utmost inportance in order to comprehend how nature can so eloquently exist and evolve in all her glory without polluting herself to extinction. Man, who has used explosive energy movement almost exclusively, is producing distress and threatening all life on this fragile planet.

This dicotomy really needs intelligent scientific investigation. Waternature.com aims to contribute to this mission

Explosion and Implosion (Expansion and Impansion) from a Scientific and Biological Viewpoint.
Viktor Schauberger, Linz, Austria, 16.01.1956, Implosion Magazine, No. 113, p.63.

Expansions are retarded explosive effects in the realm of basic substances, in which decentrating (expanding) reactive effects of a subordinate order are freed.

Explosion is chemical reaction that takes place extremely rapidly, in which a large increase in pressure occurs due to large quantities of hot gases. Explosions are always innately destructive. They therefore function in a life harming way.

The cause of an explosion is the sudden binding by highly charged oxygen, which at +40ºC (104ºF) becomes free and aggressive, of the sweet substance generally known as carbones, which become increasingly passive (inactive) with pressure and increase in heat.

With explosions vorticity (turbulence) always occurs, resulting in a reduction in the velocity of the through-flowing substance, leading in turn to cavitation, viz. the corrosion on ships propeller or pressure screws in turbines. In particular when snow meltwater or glacier water is centrifugated. In such cases radar-like retroactive re-actions take place, which as detonating events, have a shattering effect. The detonation velocity can be a thousand times greater than the normal combustion velocity, which explains, for example, why the resistance to motion increases by the square in all explosion and expansion machines, which also increases by the square of the velocity of an increase in heat. It therefore acts to impede motion

Impansions are slow processes of densation, which for example, can be exploited in so-called chillers or refrigerating machines and are to be viewed as normal de-stressing processes.

Implosion is a biochemical reaction and takes place equally rapidly, during which a strong increase in low pressure occurs, whose active force increases by the square of the rate of the decline in heat.

The cause of an implosion is the sudden binding (emulsion) of oxygen, which becomes passive (inactive) with a decrease in heat and in this state is consumed by the sweet substances, which attain their charged state at +4ºC (39.2 ºF). The mechanical atomization of the oxygen is necessary, however.

With implosions a molecular ordering takes place in a radial-axial direction and therefore a suctional effect takes place in the axis, where the most vigorous decrease in heat and pressure occurs. This attracts, indraws, concentrates and binds (emulsifies) the oxygen, which gives rise to diamagnetism. This is precisely the opposite of the atomic pressural force, generally known as electricity. With implosion, detonationless retro-suctional effects occur in the core zone, which promote a higher grade emulsive process, namely the binding of the oxygen, which becomes increasingly passive the closer it is to the centre of flow. This results in the collapse of the peripheral masses, the release of the through-flowing substances from the walls, and thereby to an almost frictionless increase in the velocity of the self-inwinding through-flowing material, which accelerates by the square of the velocity of a falling heat gradient.
