then why does a super -nova happen ?
There are several possible causes---Wikipedia has a pretty good overview
. None of them is remotely similar to the Moon scenario you hinted at, and from which your thing about "balance" spun off.
so an explosion is not caused by an imblance between energy and the inability to confine this energy ?
If you strain words enough---the word "balance" for example---everything can mean anything. Or nothing.
first its not about time
Then why did you title your thread "the forward direction of time"?
this is the question , can you drain any atom completely of energy , so that this atom becomes non-existent ?
Please define what you mean by "potential energy", as it applies to atoms. Evidently you are using the term to mean something different than it does in standard physics usage
. But what?
