Collision Sequence
By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

The sequence of acceleration/deceleration involved in a collision between two charged particles includes the following:

o The incoming E field repels the target electron and accelerates it away from the incoming electron.

o The target electron applies its own E field force against the incoming electron, causing the incoming electron to decelerate.

o This implies the entire sequence of a charged mass carrying a magnetic field, with the dynamic tension of two opposing forces.  

o The target electron’s new magnetic field collapses and drives it forward each moment, while the building B field creates an E field that opposes motion.

§ The E field acting on the trailing edge of the target electron will continue acting, recreating itself moment after moment after the external accelerating force ceases.  This is the basis of inertia and the mechanism by which momentum is stored in the DP Sea.

o The opposite sequence occurs in the space preceding the leading edge of the target electron.

§ The E field force generated by the target particle in the direction opposing the incoming particle’s velocity causes it to decelerate.

o The E field forces generated by the target particle in a direction perpendicular to the incoming electron’s path (due to a collision which passes askew of a direct impact) causes both particles to change direction in response to this force.

§ The entire acceleration sequence and asymptotic approach of the final velocity is relevant to the forces acting on this perpendicular vector.

o The E field magnitude between the two electrons continues to build as long as distance closes between the two particles.

§ The result of this ever-increasing E field is an ever increasing Force between the two, and a correspondingly increased acceleration of the target and deceleration of the incoming electron.

o When the velocity of the target electron exceeds the velocity of the incoming electron, the accelerating E field begins to drop.

§ Thus, the acceleration (target) and deceleration (incoming) decreases.

§ The particles both move closer to their constant velocity the greater the distance between the two.

§ The target electron continues to apply a forward force on the target electron, all the way to infinity, and vice versa.

§ Thus, the terminal velocity is reached asymptotically.  

§ But, for all practical purposes, after the two electrons have separated to within a few percent of their final velocity, the transfer of energy is complete for most practical purposes.

o This process of collision creates an ever-widening spread of momentum to an ever-greater population of particles.  

§ This homogenization of particulate velocity is one type of the increased randomization of particles.

§ Likewise, The outward spread of the energy away from the source of energy creates a never-ending decrease in the energy density of the universe, which is another type of entropy increase.

§ It is this inexorable process of collision, randomization, and outward dilution of energy concentration that underlies the phenomenon of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.

§ The 2nd Law states in effect that the organization state of the universe will stay the same or increase following each energetic transaction.

§ This process of randomization occurring during collisions provides the logic and mechanism which explains the indissoluble connection between entropy and the arrow of time.
