Actions flow to their associated reaction PART 2

In the first part of 'Actions flow to their associated reaction' we saw how:

Energy in the form of heat flows from hot to cold:

Cold <- Hot

Energy in the form of sound flows from loud to silent:

Silent <- Loud

Energy in the form of of a signal flows from transmitter to receiver:

Receiver <- Transmitter

Energy in the form of particles flow from fragmentation to unification:

Unified <- Fragmented

Energy in the form of a charge flows from charged to discharged:

Discharged <- Charged

Energy in the form of motion flows from moving to rest:

Rest <- Motion

Energy in the form of change flows from variable to constant:

Constant <- Variable

------------------------------

So, basically everything that exists flows to non-existent nothing.

Nothing <- Everything

-------------------------------

Because the reaction is nothing means we can only define a reaction if there is an action:

Cold <- Hot

We only know cold by whether or not there is heat.

Rest <- Motion

We can only define rest through the absence of motion.

Constant <- Variable

We can only define a constant through the absence of change.

Absolute <- Relative

We can only define an absolute frame through the absence of relativity.

Silent <- Loud

We can only define silence through the absence of noise.

-------------

Reaction <- Action

If there are no actions then there we can never propose and define the reaction.

Dependent <- Independent

A reaction is absolutely dependent on relative independent actions.
