Cool words

There are words I’ve heard that are cool and extreme, I love them.

Heliopause, termination shock, event horizon, singularity, abyssal plane, summit, neutron star, epicenter, tsunami, eye wall, debris cloud, ocean trench, infinity.

These are very interesting to me because they describe the pinnacle of nature. Whether it is a word describing the extreme edge of our solar system or the space surrounding a black hole they give me a feeling of my smallness in relation to what is out there and how out of control of my surroundings I really am.

I don’t completely understand what these words define and yet they make perfect sense in the scheme of their use. I was jazzed when I read the following formula:

1/r = 1/0 = ∞

I heard this described as a conundrum for a mathematician and for a physicist it is a black hole. How cool is that?

When I write, words convey the thoughts, actions and conversation bringing out the story I want a reader to delve into and become involved with. Words have the power to soothe and to hurt. A human who is deficient in expressing themselves loses a bit of that essence that connects us to each other. Touch with appropriate words compounds the effect of that touch. Add to this formula tone of voice and the result is complete communication.

Cool words.
