Super Powers! Scientifically Explained #1 power over ice and other cold things

Hello fellow bloggers! Welcome to a new section of my blog where I explain the possible science behind super powers and how it could be possible.

So we’re starting with the power over ice and cold. You know, shooting ice, freezing stuff, free Popsicles. The cool stuff (pun intended).

So before I explain the actual process of the power. Let me explain cold itself.

Temperature is what we use to measure how warm or cold the area around us is. What most people didn’t know is that temperature is actually a speedometer for atoms.

What temperature essentially is, is the movement of atoms in response to energy or lack thereof with the area.
The sun radiates waves of energy, among other things, throughout the solar system. In response, the atoms start vibrating and moving around as the energy goes through. This in essence is temperature, movement of atoms.

Now heat is actually something completely different. Heat is not the speed of movement of atoms, but rather the amount of energy contained within a group of atoms. In essence, the bigger something is, the more heat it can contain.

Now to review and apply the differences between heat and temperature let’s compare a pot of boiling water and a lake.

Temperature wise the pot of boiling water is much higher than the lake. Again this is because the atoms within the pot are moving much faster than the lake.

Heat wise however, the lake has much more heat. This is because the lake contains much more energy within it than the pot.

Now that we’ve established heat and temperature, let’s get into the power!

Essentially in order to create this effect of cold one would need to somehow manipulate the air around them in that energy coming in would be repelled. This would in turn lower the temperature at a moderate pace.

For a more instantaneous freezing effect one would have to not only repel energy, but also manipulate the atoms themselves to stop moving. In this, freezing would take a matter of seconds.

Basically if one wants to create a chilling effect or, given the proper strength, affect the weather. They would choose the first option. On the other hand, if one wants to essentially freeze on contact they would choose the second option.

These two factors would be considered the foundation of the cold/freeze power of which more specialized things can be built from.

These specialized powers would include things like forming frozen weapons. Where instead of controlling a whole area around the person. One would control the area within a determined shape. If one would desire to shoot projectiles that would require a combination of kinetic manipulation and the freezing respectively.

One interesting thing about the science of freezing is when considered in aspects of time.

Time essentially is the passage of matter through space. If one were to freeze everything to the point in which no single atom within the area moved. The area would essentially be frozen in time since no movement whatsoever would occur. This is much like cryogenics and the freezing and reanimation of living tissue.

So there you have it! Freezing and cold explained!

Be sure to stay tuned for other explanations of super powers!

As always, have a great day

Jon, out
