Playing Brain Games on Energy (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla, Ph.D.)

Playing Brain Games on Energy (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla, Ph.D.)

Energy is a concept for which, its reference or its use, has been contained in the domains of physics and those applying mathematical expressions. It is encapsulated within margins of statistical precision and algorithms. And yet, is it necessary to be a physicist or a mathematician to talk about Energy?

I am aware of that for me to talk about energy based on simple concepts and intuition might be seen as a blasphemy, or just unworthy of any consideration for some. And yet, intuition is what led Einstein to define the existence of Energy. So, even though my skills are not built on stats and mathematics my understanding on multidisciplinary processes might be enough to translate intuition into words and concepts.

Couple of months ago I intervened in some discussions at researchgate related with the subject of Energy.

What is infinity?

My take: Infinity is the conceptualization of lacking understanding or knowledge over something occupying an “space” relative to other conceptualizations. Basically, everything we do not understand is part of infinity. Everything we understand is located in a finite “conceptual space.”

What is space for you?

Space is what lies between the limits we mark as such. Between dates there is a space of “time”. Between physical barriers there is a space which can be empty or occupied by other physical features. Between opposite concepts there is a space where to discuss towards reaching understanding. I would share another related question, is it possible for more than one feature to exist in the same portion of space?

What could be the components of space, or is it formed by nothingness?

Without being a physicist myself I will answer just because I like thinking and I like to learn from engaging in conversation sharing my ideas.

Energy as such is a concept which we know to be disguised in many different forms but I haven´t seen any attempt to identify what is that we call Energy and changes from kinetic to potential to thermal…

Something which it has been addressed is that the transference of energy through space takes different time lapses for each different expression of Energy. So, I would consider Space as a medium through which energy travels.

Actually I have come to think that space must contain a form of energy we haven´t identified yet which is conductive to energy in all the other forms. Energy from different expressions can coalescence and deliver a new format, like heat appears in a collision of two masses.

In conclusion, in order to obtain a space containing nothing we need a lot of energy, so both concepts are linked to each other. Space is made of energy, whatever energy is.

I hope I make sense.

And since I am here, I would say that time would have physical or structural properties which would be part of this concept of energy. Energy can only be understood with time, so I would say there is something where both are two components of a singular feature.

Maybe that is what it is called space-time singularities, but sometimes I like to play with the idea of considering time as a current of “a fluid” either “moved by or made by” energy in which other forms of energy, like our known universe, are floating.

Well, this is just a brain game I like to play with. Maybe I should just quit sugar and oxigen.


The entertainer Charlie Chaplin and the scientist Albert Einstein were two of the most famous individuals of the last century.

One version of a conversation between both describes that Einstein once said, What I admire most about your art, is its universality. You do not say a word, and yet … the world understands you. It’s true“, replied Chaplin, But your fame is even greater: The world admires you, when nobody understands you.”

In a different version of the tale the two celebrities Charlie Chaplin and Albert Einstein were conversing, but only Chaplin presented the comparison between their different types of fame:

Once when Einstein was in Hollywood on a visit Chaplin drove him through the town. As the people on the sidewalks recognized two of their greatest, if very different, contemporaries, they gave them a tremendous reception which greatly astonished Einstein. “They’re cheering us both,” said Chaplin: “you because nobody understands you, and me because everybody understands me.”

Bachelor in General Biology, Masters degree "Licenciado" in Environmental Sciences (2001, Spain). PhD in Aerobiology (2007, UK). Lived, acquired training and worked in Spain, UK, Germany and Poland. I have shared the outcome from my work previous to 2013 as scientific speaker in events held in those countries as well as in Switzerland and Finland. After 12 years performing research and working in institutions linked with environmental research and management, in 2013 I found myself in a period of transition searching for a new position or funding to support my own line of research. In the current competitive scenario, in order to demonstrate my capacities instead of just moving my cv waiting for my next opportunity to arrive, I decided to invest my energy and time in opening my own line of research sharing it in this blog. In March 2017 the budget reserved for this project has ended and its weekly basis time frame discontinued until new forms of economic and/or institutional support are incorporated into the project. The value of the data and the original nature of the research presented in this platform and at LinkedIn has proved to be worthy of consideration by the scientific community as well as for publication in scientific journals. However, without a position as member of an institution, it becomes very challenging to be published. I hope that this handicap do not overshadow the value of my achievements and that the Intellectual Property Rights generated with the license of attribution attached are respected and considered by the scientist involved in similar lines of research. **Any comment and feedback aimed to be constructive is welcome as well as any approach exploring professional opportunities.** In this blog I publish pieces of research focused on addressing relevant environmental questions. Furthermore, I try to break the barrier that academic publications very often offer isolating scientific findings from the general public. In that way I address those topics which I am familiar with, thanks to my training in environmental research, making them available throughout my posts. (see "Framework and Timeline" for a complete index). At this moment, 2019, I am living in Spain with no affiliation attachments. Free to relocate geographically worldwide. If you feel that I could be a contribution to your institution, team and projects, don´t hesitate in contact me at d.fdezsevilla (at) or consult my profile at LinkedIn, ResearchGate and Also, I'd appreciate information about any opportunity that you might know and believe it could match with my aptitudes.
