I believe velocity is one of the most basic properties of the universe. Since the beginning (BB) velocity played a great part in the creation of the universe as we know it today.
It is part of the GR theory. It gives mass to massless particles. It is a measurement of time. It is the dynamic driving force of everything.
Any thoughts?

Am no expert in physics or QM, but, in this age of dualism, am sure you are bound to be wrong somewhere in your emphasis on ‘speed’.

Seems to me that speed is what makes things real. We would be sinking through the earth if it weren’t for moving particles.

But I believe there is a subtle difference between speed and velocity. Speed is a relative measurement, velocity is an independent measurement.
Velocity affects mass, size, weight, gravity, displacement,.....seems that it is a natural common denominator and has more fundamental implications as well. I’m confident it has been said before.

How can we sink if our particles don’t move?  cool hmm

I believe we don’t “sink through” other atoms due to nuclear forces within atoms and molecules. I can’t imagine velocity having much to do with this since the atoms of ice are moving much slower compared to the atoms of vapour. Ice, the slower moving particles, make it actually more difficult to “sink through” them when compared with vapour, the fast moving particles.

We don’t sink through matter because of its magnetic field, which is caused by friction. We don’t sit on a chair, but we hover above a chair, repulsed by the magnetic fields. Magnetism is derived from energy converting into a magnetic field by rotation (velocity).

Particles always move and spin and always have a magnetic field. If they didn’t we would indeed sink through the floor.

Yes, neutrinos have no magnetic field and that is why they are able to pass through matter.

So technically, particles don’t always have a magnetic field then.  Do they?  cheese

well, ok, not All particles have a magnetic field.  oh oh . But the fact that because of this they can indeed pass through matter proves my earlier point. They are not attracted or repulsed by other magnetic fields.

Well, it forces me to think more precisely and not throw around general statements like that.

George; Ice, the slower moving particles, make it actually more difficult to “sink through” them when compared with vapour, the fast moving particles.

I am on thin ice as it is. cheese
