Thermal Energy Theory

For all living organisms on earth, there is one necessity: heat. Whether it be to prepare food, provide warmth against the harsh seasons, or fight off illness’, heat (electromagnetic radiation) plays a crucial part. As life is tied to electromagnetic radiation, it’s inconceivable to think that this source of energy wouldn’t be capable of expanding the very horizons observed by the forefront of science. Furthermore, the notion that this life-bearing form of energy is simply that, just for life to thrive off of, nothing else, would be preposterous; the thermal energy given off is capable of much more than that. Regarding thermal expansion, the notion of the universe's expansion due to electromagnetic radiation is feasible. Thermal energy is…show more content…
Within Einstein’s equation, the constant was intended to act as a fix in order to prove that the universe was indeed static; which did the did the opposite. Friedmann, a Russian mathematician, was the first to realize that the fix had instead proved the sporadicisity of the universe; like a pencil balancing on its tip (map.gsfc.nasa.gov). Thus, raising the question: what is accelerating the universe in its expansion? The proposition that some form of heat is a feasible explanation. Similar to how bread is made, heat is transferred and absorbed by the dough, thus resulting with a loaf of bread. On a significantly larger scale, this electromagnetic radiation is attempting to fill up the void of…show more content…
