What the eye may not see . . .

We are always busy with denying what we can not see.
But see . . . It's a lot of things which are present although we normaly cannot see or hear it.
Like the sound barrier . . . We cannot see that it actually is a kind of wall controlling the sounds around. To human that means, it is a lot of sounds the human ear cannot hear.
.
But when an airoplane passes the sound barrier, a camera actually can capture "the wall".
As you SEE . . . The plane is actually passing through an "invisible" wall.








Do you want to deny it??? Explain it to be something else than what it is?? To normalize it to an extend so it's absolute abnormal???
Don't worry . . . That is normal . . .

no, no, kirsten..this is no invisible wall. this "wall" that you see is actually condensed cloud caused by a rapid drop in pressure. think of you running fast in a humid area, now picture doing it at an extremely fast speed. This is called the prandtl-glauet singularity.

see: maximum dynamic air pressure.

"To normalize it to an extend so it's absolute abnormal???"

whats? with all the respect, your views and philosophy is as flawed as your view on spirituality. consult me if you need help.

Vinai: I hear you ... You are soo clever

It's a net looking efect when that pressure wave is broken.

I remember when I was a kid and I would hit the sidewalk with a hammer and people a block away would see the hammer fall a second before the sound hit them.

Vinai: You refer to ...
"To normalize it to an extend so it's absolute abnormal???"

I am not talking abt. the cloud apearing... I am talking abt. the SOUND-BARRIER.
Is it there or is it only fantacy to you??

"What is real?" is the most discussed concept in the history of philosophy.
Psychologically it is what exists for us within our own minds. That is, if you believe something is real then it is real within your own mind. Of course everybody has a different perception of reality as we see things within the terms of reference of our own experience and understanding. For example, two people may look at the same chair and each will see something very different. Which person's view is more correct?

Kirsten N. Namskau said...

You are so right Lexcen.
... And both are correct of course.
But what i find amusing, is how most people try to explain things scientific in order to believe it and get it into something else than what it is. If it is not scientific explained, then it is not there.
Like Vinai ... He lost the point of the post. I am facinating and talking abt. the SOUND BARRIER ... (an invisible "wall") He thinks that I believe the CLOUD that appears when you pass the barrier is the point of the post and the "wall".
(SIGH)

Cool pics kirsten.

i like the pictures, thanx for finding them.

i always thought, being kind to others brings kindness back to you.

I like your spirituality.

I find your blog uplifting.

There is a way to manipulate the sound barrier to move two ton objects.

There is a theory that this is how the pyramids were made in Egypt.

Anyway, if you are interested, google "Coral Castle" it's in Florida. Also I believe that is what Nikola Tesla used in the Philadelphia experiment...(the manipulation of the sound barrier to make an object disappear).

Anyway, thanks for the thought.

Kirsten N. Namskau said...

infinitesimal: thank you ...
You are into something interesting there ... abt. sound-power.
I actually know know a bit about that, but again we meet the scientists conclusions: "If not everybody can do it, then it can't be done."
But still, it has been done, even in our century.

Got here through Lee Ann. I've had books (only 2!) published. I'm not going to buy your book, but why don't you sent it to me? On the email thingy. Hotboy

I can't get this clicky stuff to work right now! You should come and see me. We might have some things in common. Hotboy

I agree with l>t - cool pic. I don't care about the ins and outs of it - I love the idea of the sound barrier being crossed and a cloud being the 'wall'. It's cool. Thanks!!
