If you want to talk about evolution of elements, the

nuclear reactions is somewhat understood.

If you will remember, most H, He and Li were created
in the big band. Elements up through the iron group.
[ like Fe, Co or Ni at which level no more energy is
radiated ], are created via fusion processes [aka
nucleo sythesis ]in the cores of stars.
Heavier elements yet in supernovae.

# So, all the elements of the Periodic Table are present in our Sun, even if
in tiny quantities, or in similar fiery bodies in outer space? Proven, or
assumed?
What is the difference between a solid, a liquid, and a gas - but
dispersion of atoms or molecules. With further increase in temperature can
atoms disperse/split?
Conversely, is a drop in temperature needed for some elements to form?
Hydrogen constitutes only a small percentage of the Earth's crust - now.
But that is because most hydrogen on earth is tied up in water, and in
living things.
If hydrogen is the most primitive element, and Nature is a causal
process, then it is reasonable to assume all the other elements came from
primitive hydrogen. Unless they were all formed simultaneously, and
immutably.
If the Periodic Table is indeed periodic, this may be due to elements
being constrained by a limited number of possible "properties" in their
habitat, and doomed to repeat them.
While the atomic stability of the inert (now noble) gases is the aim, it
is the restless nature of things for a new "period" to commence, and again
seek inert gas stability.
In a Dynamic Universe, everything tends to "evolve" (ie. change), due to
causal consequences, but if the Elements are limited to the 100+ we know of,
then this is because of the laws of atomic association (proton, neutron,
electron)?
Any dynamic universe must function according to some type of laws/rules,
to operate at all, but does this imply a Lawgiver? Or does that only put
the question one stage further back? Same with Big Bang - what existed
before? Nothing?
And if the universe had a Beginning, does it thus have an End?

Measured.

Non radioactive nuclei are forever unless involved in nuclear
reactions.


Conversely, is a drop in temperature needed for some elements to form?


Nope.

You are more hydrogen than anything else.

process, then it is reasonable to assume all the other elements came from

No, most He, Li came out of the big bang.

Now, YOU make up any story you wish from that. As long
as your tripe satisfies the measured/inferred quantities of the

Newton, Einstein or Hawkins, except that they had/have a

Mind you though, my Aussie friend, there are certain things

Sam, explained to you above which ones occur where.
This is proven. Study some spectroscopy. The conclusions
from it are the same whether light, flames or sparks come
from celestial sources or from the goods that are checked at
the receiving inspection in factories, who need to verify
whether they actually got what they have ordered.

Listen Don, ALL that cosmological stuff is CONJECTURE
and it is as old as is humankind. It is the greatest story ever
told about our yearning for the answer of the question:
------------ * "Where did *we come from?"..... ------------

This can only be answered by crossing into the realms of
philosophy, faiths, beliefs and fantasies.. from the down to
earth discipline of physics which is the science of
MEASURING things ....
(well, by comparing new stuff with known objects/events)

All our heroic attempts to explain it "scientifically"can be
reduced to the math/equation of the == "1-2-3-4 cosmic
envelope" == that links the pillars of ANY cosmology:

c = (G*M/R)^(1/2) = (G*M*H)^(1/3) = (G*M*b)^(1/4)

The descending 1,2,3,4 exponents bases show all the domain
max. limits that we can observe within the universe that we inhabit.

Now, YOU make up any story you wish from that. As long
as your tripe satisfies the measured/inferred quantities of the
above 4 factor sets, you will know exactly as much as did
Newton, Einstein or Hawkins, except that they had/have a
taller bully pulpit than you do, to sell their version of tripe.

Mind you though, my Aussie friend, there are certain things
that we humans will never be able to know simply because
of the way our brains are wired wired. *Or, try to improve on
4-5 billion years of trial and error... * *Good luck with that!

Take care, you guys, Merry Xmas & *laugh as long as you
still can.... ahahahaha... ahahahahanson

Thanks Virdy and likewise.
Now for the New Year put more pizzazz into the Mahi then just Maple
Loops . Make some "Old Man and the Sea" **meforce** Drama,
vocalize the "h"... into "Ma-H-ee" and become the "Pal" of the "Mahi".

Nice tasting fish Mahi-Mahi. I appreciate your encouragement.

I update the meforce thread every couple of weeks. Either the readers
are impressed, or stunned, or just too interested only in AGW. Who
knows.

Given the 4-5 billion years of trial and error, I take my time in
raising my hand in the universal physics classroom, and only slowly
jump up and down, never trying too hard to yell "Look at me. Look at
me! Look at me?!" The entire Earth wide class is sleeping at their
desks -- including the self proclaimed and Uni anointed all too
competent teachers. Yawn.

I do think the "2 c me" variation I've done to arrive at meforce does
and should leave everyone wondering how all the past century's
mathematicians, physicists, and english lit types could've been so
blind sighted. Again, who knows. Silence is obvious. If no one
interacts, they presume the idea itself ought vanish. They've never
heard, or never understood, of Plato on the conservation of ideas
either.

http://www.hinkhoj.com/ says that Mahi, in Hindu, means "Earth".


The "pal" means to protect, to raise, to nurture. So I grew up being
often reminded by family and friends how Mahipal means "Earth
Protector." Good thing nothing goes to my head. More seriously, good
luck Earth, look behind you... AGW! Be afraid, be very very afraid.
Stop breathing to be safe.

Earth is also a Sanskrit word. You're welcome World for its name.

Earth's Equatorial radius is 6378km. Numerical coincidence of 4
digits?

So it is. Sam Worm Lie, get your programmers to compute for you its
value when rounded -- he he radius round he he -- off into km. For
your input, km is kilometres in certain forms of English.

While your learning conversions, tell me what the Earth radius is as a
fraction of 1AU. Do keep yourself busy... go also compute the value of
pi for its first 7638 digits.

The metric system is gay.
