Interactions and Cascades

Two events which influence one another constitute an interaction.

Interactive events form various relations and are separated by various intervals of space and time.

The degree of influence of interacting events depends on the nearness of the events in relation to one another, and the force which causes the interaction. The nearer two or more objects or events are to one another in space and time, the greater their potential for influencing one another.

Interactive events involve the transfer of energy or momentum in various forms, and at different time rates. Events range from the strong and weak interactions of subatomic particles, to the gravitational interaction of large clusters of galaxies, and include mechanical, thermodynamic, electrical, and magnetic interactions.

A cascade is the buildup or breakdown of coherent forms over time.

The duration of a cascading event is determined by the rate or rates of the incremental changes which occur along the path of the event.

Cascading events produce converging and diverging patterns of motion, including the onset and decay of various events, random meandering, turbulence, branching, explosive bursts of energy, and radial symmetry.


Swift wind! Space! My Soul! Now I know it is true what I guessed at; What I guessed when I loafed on the grass, What I guessed when I lay alone in my bed… and again as I walked the beach under the paling stars of the morning.

All truths wait in all things, …Only what proves itself to every man and woman is so, Only what nobody denies is true.

This minute that comes to me over the past decillions, There is no better than it and now.

– Walt Whitman
