Singularities break the laws of physics.
While the search for understanding of singularities continues, we can still leverage our incomplete understandings to our advantage. If you understand at least some of the mind-bending, mysterious phenomenon out there, then you can expand your mind and improve your life.
In our last blog, we explored the significance of singularities via The Big Bang and applied the context of singularity to Source Code Meditation. In this blog, we continue our exploration of singularities with the mystery of sonoluminescence — a singularity of light & sound — and apply it to the “SalutoGenic Singularity.”
What is sonoluminescence?
Sonoluminescence is a word derived from Latin words — “sonus”, “lumin”, “esse.” — which mean “the essence of sound and light.” It’s a phenomenon that produces a large amount of energy in a short amount of time due to a supersonic collapse of a bubble. The bubble is formed when soundwaves are strong enough to tear a liquid apart to create cavitation.
Cavitation is not a new phenomenon. You’ve already seen cavitation bubbles if you’ve ever moved your hand quickly enough through water. Boat propellers also generate cavitation bubbles. If you “hit” a liquid hard enough, then a low-pressure zone is formed that pulls gasses out of the water — that’s called “boiling” — to form a bubble. Cavitation bubbles are filled with vapor from “boiled” liquid, even at low temperature.
Sound can also be used to form cavitation bubbles. Sound is a pressure wave with an amplitude and frequency. With just the right combination of amplitude and frequency, a standing wave forms in a liquid that tears a stable hole in the liquid — a bubble. Furthermore, that bubble can collapse faster than the speed of sound in liquid, which generates enough force to emit light.
Focusing the energy of sound has practical applications. In a procedure known as lithotripsy, doctors use sound “shock” waves to break up kidney stones into smaller pieces.
In the case of sonoluminescence, there is sufficiently dense and focused sound energy to form ultraviolet light.
What’s so mysterious?
Scientists still don’t know exactly how or why it happens. What we do know is astounding.
- Sound is “converted” into light, but the mechanism of the light emission remains uncertain
- The collapse of the bubble reaches speeds of over 4-times the speed of sound in the gas
- The flash of light lasts for 30 to 300 trillionths of a second (a picosecond)
- The frequency of light is more stable than the frequency that generates the resonance
- The temperature of light is over 20,000°F which is twice as hot as the surface of the sun, which is approximately 10,000°F
- A new phase of matter is formed — a “cold” dense plasma.
- All these observations push physics beyond the limits of current understanding.
Application of Singularity
This form of singularity provides another useful model for forming the SalutoGenic Singularity, which is the greatest discovery humans have made so far. In previous blogs, we discovered how the force of consciousness must have the capacity to provide at least as much energy as the energy contained in the entire universe. Therefore, if you expand your awareness to contain the entire universe — just as a starting point — and then COLLAPSE the entire field of consciousness into SalutoGenic mechanisms in your body, then those active mechanisms in your body — a form of eros — will be driven and fortified by the force of consciousness, which exponentially expands your ability to focus consciousness, which amplifies the force of consciousness, which amplifies SalutoGenesis, which… etc. etc.
… this phenomenon is an exponentially increasing, positive feedback loop that builds towards infinity: that’s the SalutoGenic Singularity.
