Index tides.

If on a tablet, set the display vertically; if on a smart phone, set it horizontally.

In order to ease the reading, I advise to conform the column of the text to the line below.


Directing the attention to water.

In the first part of the site, I presented the results of my research on seeds, how it is possible to increase harvests, by exploiting the cumulative-dissipative cycle, thanks to which they can remain germinable over time.

In this second part of the site, I instead direct my attention to water, which, like seeds, is at the top of what makes life possible on our planet.

I found that also water makes use of the cumulative-dissipative cycle , in order to keep its entropy at a low level. In order to do it, it makes use of its mouvement with regard to other matter at critical angular velocities, as the seeds do.

Itinerary 2.1 - Introduction to the tides.


Itinerary 2.2 - How this research on tides started.

When an area of knowledge, taken for granted, is found to be instead terra incognita.
(edition 2019-02-16; updated 2021-09-03).

This itinerary traces the difficult beginning of the collection of data, intended to understand, from the behaviour of the water, if it too is subject to cumulative dissipative processes, induced by its movement with respect to the Moon (and the Sun). It tells you how our minds find it difficult to accept something that is new to them.

Itinerary 2.3: the water figures.

In liquid water “force d” acts often but only on a few molecules per single event. Consequently, the processes which give rise to the tides are widespread but hidden from the naked eye, save in particlar location and at particular times. Then the phenomenon is amplified and reveals itself to be due to a decrease of water density.

Itinerary 2.6: the mechanism of the tides.

It is proposed an hypothesis of the mechanism of the tides, which appears to satisfy all the constraints of the itinerary five, following the approach of considering the tide waves, as the delayed consequence of the variation of the water density, and of its volume, at different times, within a tide basin.
