[SOLVED] Resistance to change Change in continuum Just thoughts on the subject of change When change is demanded of another. say a star requires it’s satellites to change due to it’s own changes and the “changor” refuses to change but the change is required the changor will essentially reconfigure it self until it changes.And by the same token the Changee loses energy in the attempt to change the changor. It’s a bit like firing a bullet at a wall. The wall must conform to the change demanded by the bullet. In doing so the wall gets a hole in it. If resistance to change is not present then the energy of the bullet would not be lost. I think what I am dwelling on here is that change could also be described as another force or maybe another force that is an outcome of other forces. I am also thinking of, say, atomic fission where one particle requires change of another and this resistance to change generates outcomes such as heat and disintegration. Is there any name given to this force apart from time? Is there any mathematical symbols used to describe change? (I was never good at maths) We have Energy (the bullet) then we have resistance to that energy ( the wall) then we have an out come of that energy (Hole in wall and loss of energy in the bullet) As the bullet passes through many walls the bullet loses it’s energy and eventually it has no ability to affect change. The thinking is that for a good energy equation I am feeling that resistance to change has to be considered. And was wondering how e=mc^2 allows for this? Any ideas?
