Drop a ball on the floor and watch what happens.

The ball bounces a few times and eventually comes to rest.

But we know that there is a law called the conservation of energy, which means that the motion of the ball falling cannot be lost, it can only be transferred.

So after the ball has fallen, bounced around and come to rest, where is all that motion that all these physicists tell us has been conserved and not lost?

I mean, it looks to me like we had motion and now we have stillness. So does this violate the laws of physics which states that energy is never lost or gained?

But if we look closer we see that the motion is still there – in the atoms of the floor. How do we know that on each bounce, the ball transferred some of its motion to the atoms of the floor? Because we can measure the fact that the floor got hotter, and we know that heat is a mechanism by which motion is transferred from one object to another. and that temperature, as the average amount of heat in a body, tells us how fast or slow – on average – the atoms of that body are moving.

So, the motion of the falling ball was transferred (in part) to the floor on each bounce. Every time an atom touches another atom, motion (energy) is transferred. Motion goes from the faster to the slower atom. The faster atom slows down and the slower atom speeds up.

This is the law we spoke of before. The slowing down and the speeding up balances. Always.

Motion (energy) is never lost or gained.

This is the the most fundamental law of physics. It is the source of all the other subsequent mysteries.

Moreover, we see that the most fundamental tenent of physics, from which every law in the material universe  is derived is simply this: that one thing touches another and this touching transfers motion from A to B.

The universe was born, containing a finite amount of energy (motion); the history of time is the story of the journey of that motion (energy) from object to object through physical touch. This description applies to every phenomena in the universe of the last 4.5 billion years.

What this means is that magnets do not exert a force over each other, they are physically touching each other, like the way the sun physically touches us. In other words, there is no such thing as force. There is only motion, and touching. Light is not “reflected” off of objects like a tennis ball off a wall. Rather, photons are absorbed into an electron and a different photon is released from the electron.

In other words, the photon’s motion is transferred to the electron. The electron moves (momentarily) to a higher vibration frequency (the quantum leap) but cannot escape the pull of the nucleus. The electron then releases the extra motion it received from the photon, emitting a new photon, and falls back to its equilibrium.

This new photon is not the same as the photon that went in. It is “colored” according to the vibrations of the electron. Our eyes feel the touch of this photon vibration frequency, converting its motion back into electrons in the retina, which our brains experience as color.

So when we see the color of an object it is because the object has reached out (radiated) and touched us physically. All of our senses are senses of physical touch, each sense responding to a certain frequency of motion. This wave harmonics is the method by which all information is communicated in the universe. We process waves, the motion of the universe, bit by bit, like a computer. We do this through touch, which is the phenomena of one wave (vibration) harmonizing with another wave (vibration). When we touch a desk, what we feel is the same thing the magnets feel – electrons resisting each other. The mechanism of this “resisting” is all just the vibration and wave harmonics of particles and atoms bumping into each other.
