1.1.6 - Efficiency of the cycle.

============================================================

On the previous pages, I wrote how the seeds take advantage of their cumulative-dissipative cycle, to remain viable over time, and how farmers can increase crops, simply by coordinating ways and times of preparation and execution of sowing, as required by said cycle.

On this page, I consider how the cycle in question varies its efficiency, because of two variables.

Variable 1 - At critical values of angular velocity.

As already mentioned, the cumulative-dissipative cycle is induced in the seeds by the angular motion relative to other matter, when there are also thermal exchanges in accordance with the phase. When the seeds are still on the ground, the cycle is regulated by the movement of the Moon.

However, between the Moon and the seeds, the interactions occur only at specific critical values of angular velocity. Therefore, since the Moon varies all the time its angular velocity around the Earth, interactions occur only during short episodes, once in a while.

The more the Moon's angular velocity varies per unit of time, the shorter the interaction episodes, during which either cumulative or dissipative processes may take place, and consequently the lower the efficiency of the cycle. Of course, with the same thermal exchanges per unit of time, and provided that they are in agreement with the phase.

Influence of the declination of the Moon relative to the equator.

The variation of the angular velocity in question is mostly influenced by how much the declination of the Moon relative to the equator varies. Within each sidereal month (27.3216 days), the said declination has an excursion, that can range from 18 degrees to 28.5 degrees, over 18.6 years.

Times of plenty (because of high viability in seeds).

Consider two extreme cases of angular velocity variation.

The seeds sown in August 2016 (Moon declination excursion 18 degrees; reduced variation of its angular velocity around the Earth) had, on average, a high degree of viability. Generally, they have given rise to abundant crops, sold at low prices.

Moon's angular velocity varies daily

The years of lean times (because of poor viability in seeds).

While the seeds that will be sown in September 2025 will have on average a low degree of viability (Moon declination excursion 28.5 degrees, with sustained variation of its angular velocity around the Earth). In general, the seeds will give rise to poor harvests, which will be sold at high prices.

Variable 2 - Importance of the cumulative phase.

The efficiency of the cycle depends on the extent to which the cumulative phase before sowing is performed, which may then become, if partially executed, the Achilles heel of the cycle, as the history of food crises and famines due to low viability of seeds proves.

The dissipative phase's efficiency is consequent to what happened before, during the previous cumulative phase.

In practice, before sowing, in order to improve the cycle's efficiency, it is enough to increase the temperature during the cumulative phase, of course, well below the physiological limits valid for the seeds.
