"Beyond my paygrade, but I get from the article that the state of absolute
zero does not mean that ALL atoms are motionless, but that they average.
Thus some atoms are in motion with postive energy while others are giving off
negative energy. If they average zero, then you have absolute zero even though some of those atoms are still moving! I am not sure how this works
I'm sorry, but I don't see how one can have "negative energy." That still implies less energy than no energy, regardless of how many atoms are involved. As I asked Recently we were talking about the difficulty of wrapping our minds around the concept of nothingness, and how something can come from nothing (not just an vacuum with energy, but truly nothing). Now we're asked to accept the possibility of having a property of essentially less than nothing--that is, less than no energy. Really? Am I the only one here who has
trouble with this concept? To me it makes as much sense as saying, I had 5 marbles, and lost 6 of them, so now I have less than no marbles. If I keep thinking about this stuff, that's where I'm afraid I will end up.
