Super Ball

So when we talk about these balls – these objects, let’s talk a little physics, a little science.  Please, I don’t want anybody to fade off into the atmosphere or with their eyes glazed over.  This is going to be very brief.  What is kinetic energy?  It’s the energy of a mass in motion traveling through life.  Kinetic energy is the energy an object has because it has motion.  Kinetic energy can be stored – hence the mindfulness practice.  However, in the natural world it is said that energy cannot be created or destroyed – it can only be converted.  There is such a thing as potential energy.  As, even when one is at rest and not doing any work, it still has potential.  Does it not?  The ball has potential to bounce.  Does it not?  Take a coiled spring.  It can be released and all that energy doing.  However, here’s where we go down the rabbit hole, Mike.  Here’s where we get into the land of Fishing Without Bait.
