Why the "fuss"?

My prior discussion, copied in
its entirety below, constitutes
the most-significant paper that's
ever been written in Physical
Science, but it's 'refused' [even
though its stuff can be replicated
in any Junior High School class-
room, and is written so that even
Children can understand it, and
have fun with it].

||| For instance, a few 'weeks' back,
||| I reached a "consolidation-point"
||| with my then-current bottle of
||| Johnson's Baby Shampoo [tm],
||| so, with some Joy, set about rep-
||| licating the "squirting" experiment
||| that I've discussed, reiteratively,
||| in long-former posts.
||
|| Reiteration of the Experimental
|| Technique:
||
|| Use a fine-metering pipette to dis-
|| pense John's Baby Shampoo [or
|| the viscous fluid of your choice -- 
|| I've wanted to do it with Mobil 1
|| Motor Oil, but haven't done so yet]
|| into a petrie dish that contains an
|| evenly-distributed quantity of the
|| fluid you're using.
||
|| It's important to allow the bubbles
|| to rise out of both fluid resevoirs
|| before you undertake trials. Bubbles
|| introduce artifactual discontinuities
|| at the pipette tipand in the receiving
|| resevoir.
||
|| Then open the pipette's petcock
|| just enough so that a fine "thread"
|| of the viscous fluid flows continuously
|| from it into the receiving resieoir.
||
|| What you'll observe will be a build-
|| ing of a highly-dynamic little "mound"
|| of fluid at "the point" where the stream
|| impacts the resevoir's fluid.
||
|| This "mound" is literally a macroscopic
|| "atom".
||
|| It builds be-cause the rate at which
|| fluid enters it exceeds the rate at which
|| fluid can exit it -- because of the fluid's
|| viscosity.
||
|| And, as the mound's 3-D Topology
|| varies, you'll see little "squirts" of fluid
|| being ejected from the mound.
||
|| What's happening is that the fluid
|| collecting in the mound, and, within
|| the mound, it flows in a way that
|| minimizes averall energy-content.
||
|| This energy-minimization results in
|| fluid dynamics that vary the mound's
|| 3-D Topology, and when such var-
|| iation flows toward the point at which
|| the fine stream of fluid flowing out of
|| the pipette meets the surface of the
|| mound, instances of non-minimal-
|| energy-flow occur, and, be-cause
|| of this non-minimalness, to the de-
|| gree of it, the fine-thread flow is
|| ejected from the mound.
||
|| These fluid-ejection dynamics shift
|| the fluid dynamics within the mound,
|| which terminates the non-minimal
|| energy condition, so the "squirting"
|| ceases.
||
|| This is an =exact= macroscopic
|| instance of what has been referred
|| to as "quantum shifts" with respect
|| to "atoms".
||
|| And such macroscopic fluid-dynamic
|| "atoms" behave in =exact= accord
|| with the Black Body Radiation.
||
|| This can be observed by performing
|| successive trials of the above ex-
|| periment while varying the Temper-
|| ature of the fluid over a range of
|| TempK.
||
|| At the low-TempK end of this
|| range, the "squirts" will occur at
|| relatively-high flow rates. [The
|| pipette's petcock will have to be
|| opened relatively much in order
|| to observe any "squirting".]
||
|| And as the fluid's TempK is in-
|| creased, the "squirting" will occur
|| at ever-smaller flow rates, in a way
|| that =exactly= matches the shift-
|| ing of the black body power spec-
|| trum toward its high-frequency end,
|| including the extreme-high-frequency
|| dropping-off of power.
||
|| What's very-nice about this fluid-
|| dynamics instance of the black body
|| radiation is that everything in it can
|| be easily calculated from continuous
|| flow-rates and 3-D Topology.
||
|| The fluid-mechanical "squirts" are
|| =exactly= analogous to what have
|| been referred to as "quantum" events,
|| but, in the fluid-mechanical case, it
|| is readily apparent that the underpin-
|| ning fluid dynamics are =continuous=,
|| and that the only thing that alters is
|| the directedness of fluid flow with
|| respect to minimal energy.
||
|| I have Verified that the same dynam-
|| ics acn account for all energy flows,
|| at all scales.
||
|| That is, I have Verified that there
|| is no need to propose that energy
|| is divided-up into "discrete packets".
||
|| I'll be happy to provide such com-
|| plete Verification to anyone who
|| wants to receive it in-person. [There's
|| a lot that needs to be covered, and
|| the dynamics inherent need to be
|| drawn and "animated" at a chaulk
|| board.]
