Potential

Recommended Posts

Everything has potential. I'll never forget what my science teacher told me. "Ben the chances of you marrying the queen, and culminating the marriage on the moon is slim, but it still has potential". 

 

Scary thought, but it's true..... anything can happen.......... I could learn to fly, run at the speed of light, anything! The chances are slim, but it still has potential. 

 

 

The thought of achieving something you thought was impossible, isn't really so impossible when you think about it is it?

Kinda reminds me of what my younger brother often tells me; "nothing is impossible."

Hmm, yes everything has potential. Whether it's potential to go wrong, or potential to succeed!

Id settle for not feeling the way I do and being able to socialise and feel not a prisoner in my own world. Everything is technicaly possible now or in the future for some people. In this life my brain doesnt work as it should and I dont think the medical profession will find a cure in my life time and find a way to rewire the brain correctly so for me that isnt possible so I am limited as to the possibility I csn achieve.

Maybe you should embrace who you are and except that your brain is wired differently, to me you seem a caring person who shows concern for others and you have your mum and girlfriend so you can all support each other :D

I remember I used to have trouble with probability, because as far as I was concerned everything had a 50/50 chance of occurring, it either did, or it didn't.

It's a nice idea, to believe there is a chance I could run at the speed of light :)

As all atoms that we are made of came from the core of a star does that mean that in the beginning our material was thrown out at light speed or are atoms and light different? Think ive confused myself now does anyone know the answer?

Atoms and light are definitely different from eachother. Light is made of photons. I am not sure if atoms can even travel at the speed of light. I guess I'll have to pass on that question.

If I remember correctly, Atoms can be accelerated close to the speed of light, however as they approach the speed of light the energy required to accelerate them becomes higher and higher and they effectively gain mass. Photons having zero mass can travel at the speed of light.

 

As for the stuff we are made from, its true the heavier elements can only be made in supernovae, basically any element past Iron needs more energy than it gives out from fusion.

 

So really we are all made of star stuff that came from stars billions of years ago.
