Super Powers! Scientifically Explained #2 transparency

Hello fellow bloggers an welcome back to yet another Super Power Explained!

Today we’re going to deal with the on if my personal favourite powers: transparency.

You know, like a ghost, going through walls and crap. Cool stuff

The first thing I must make not of us that transparency and invisibility are two different things. Yet, coincidentally, transparency does have a side effect of making users practically unseeable, but it’s detrimental and possibly fatal if used in a long period of time.

So let’s get any confusion out of the way. Invisibility is the power of taking an object and cloaking it from our vision. There’s essentially two types: camouflage and light manipulation.

Invisibility bends light around an object so that it cannot be seen. However, heat signals would still radiate.

Transparency however allows light to go through an object and coincidentally is a poor at encasing heat.

So now to the power. In order for something to become transparent and essentially go through walls, its atoms must arrange in a fashion as to fit through the atoms in said wall.

Most may not know this. But solid objects are actually quite porous on an atomic level.

Knowing a little about atoms, one would remember that the actual nucleus is very tiny compared to the electron field surrounding it. How tiny? If a rubber eraser at the end of a pencil was the nucleus. The electron field would be the size of a football stadium. So yea pretty big. This entails that there is a lot of space within an atom.

In theory this should allow for some movement between atoms, but not all. Another thing about atoms is that the connections they make, usually leave spaces in between which again may allow atoms to move through. Saying this. Not it’s time to consider how it would be feasible.

If one were able to apply some force whether it be magnetic or something else, in order to space their own atoms through these holes in the world. They could in theory achieve transparency.

Now there’s a lot of haZards with this like getting stuck in a wall, losing parts of your atoms. All in all however the basic idea is manipulating one’s own atoms to fit through the spaces in this world.

That is transparency my friends.

Also, stay tuned tonight for a new brew in the collection of drinkable posts: the Late Night Java!

You won’t wanna miss it! As always, I hope you all have a wonderful evening.

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
