The Physics of Living in a Bubble and the Futility of the Bubble

F = ma
Principal of Relativity

Interaction with an object changes momentum. 

The only way to not be affected by a force is to not interact with it at all.

Exchanging momentum between objects will not affect the net momentum of a system. It is possible to define a system such that net momentum is never lost nor gained.

Accept this.

    Aha? And? I actually got intrigued by the title but then there was nothing, elaborate please :)

    Force = mass * acceleration

    The only way to not be affected by a force is to not interact with it at all, so when the people inside the bubble don’t interact with the outside, the people inside the bubble are deeming the outside nonexistent.

    Yet, exchanging momentum between objects will not affect the net momentum of a system. so… it is possible to define a system such that net momentum is never lost nor gained. which is the case of our bubble.. anything that happens inside the bubble doesn’t matter, because it doesn’t affect the momentum of the system.

    That is the nature of bubbles.

    Not quite convinced, the system is not only the bubble (actually there is no bubble), it is the elements inside the bubble so:
    Element A exhibits 90% of the energy of the bubble
    Element B exhibits 10% of the energy of the bubble
    Both elements could just be happy being in the bubble and thinking, well no matter what we do the energy in the bubble is same, but B could bounce A and gain 60% of the energy and be happier, still the system is intact :D
    On another hand, every system is a part of a bigger system, fa system C (which contains your bubble) could suffer a bounce from system D and the energy could all go into elements in system D, just like that…
    Oh another thought, they say in physics if you order a deck of cards then you must have influenced the overall distribution of entropy, ya3ni by staying in a bubble you could be actually causing the destruction of other bubbles in the vast universe :D :D
    I honestly don’t know why I find this VERY amusing :)

    You know you’re in a bubble when you recognize Shihabi’s glasses.

    Sufian, ya 7abeebiiii dakhalna entropy discussions hala2 hehe. I am also really enjoying thinking about it. Imagine that we just popped a bubble in one of the many potentially habitable planets spotted by NASA.
    Unrelated, but fascinating, I’ve also been obsessing about the concept of “Flux” lately.

    Godot Basha, HAHAHAHAHAHA, that doesn’t only make you in the bubble, it makes you one of its walls :P Sorry hadeek il marra bil Rainbow if I freaked you out ;)
