POTENTIAL ENERGY - Part 1
The construct that we call “energy” has beneath the surface a number of distinct planes of ontological understanding. The systemic understanding of what the word “energy” actually represents starts with the principle that everything is energy, everything is composed of energy, and everything that exists and unfolds in the universe involves energies. As much as science tries, we do not understand the first principles of “energy”. We understand certain rules of behavior, which is valuable, but we do not understand what is beneath the hood of an atom, or light, or gravity.
In order for civilization to make sense of “energy”, and then to apply that understanding for the betterment of all, we are going to explore deconstructing what the word “energy” cannot tell us, and then reconstructing with words, and soon with semiotics, just what the complexity of “energy” looks like when modeled.
Energy is simply the capacity to move one thing (change position in space, change vibrate, pulse, exchange, flow, transfer, empower). The one thing can be the actor (the stimuli itself), or it can be the acted upon.
