Definitions of Thermodynamic Quarks

Consider a repetitive chain of events noted by $\Psi = \left( \sf{\Omega}_{1} , \sf{\Omega}_{2} , \sf{\Omega}_{3} \ \ldots \ \right)$ where $\sf{\Omega}_{1} = \sf{\Omega}_{2} = \sf{\Omega}_{3}$ etc. Earlier we gave an example of $\Psi$ as a simple movie loop called The Almost-Dead March. That movie was boring so here is a more detailed example called The March to a Better Tomorrow. It begins with a terrible battle, there was blood everywhere. Unfortunately, our protagonists lost and had to retreat. There was a long march back to safer ground; left, right, left, right … up into the mountains … left, right, left right. It was freezing, and the marchers were almost dead. But then as they came over a rise the sun came out, a ray of hope illuminated their hearts, and they bravely marched on to begin a new day. We can make a mathematical version of this brief storyline as follows. The slog through bloody battle can be represented by associating a red sensation with each step, so the first couple of events are

$\sf{P_1} =$ { ordinary-seed.png , southern-seed.png }
and
$\sf{P_2} =$ { odd-seed.png , southern-seed.png }

These two steps are bundled together

$\sf{\Omega} = \left( \sf{P}_{1} , \sf{P}_{2} \right) =$ ( { ordinary-seed.png , southern-seed.png } , { odd-seed.png , southern-seed.png } )

And then repeated over and over again to express battle sequences

$\Psi =$ ( { ordinary-seed.png , southern-seed.png } , { odd-seed.png , southern-seed.png } , { ordinary-seed.png , southern-seed.png } , { odd-seed.png , southern-seed.png } )

Similarly, the long freezing march through the mountains could be represented by

$\sf{\Omega}^{\prime} =$ ( { ordinary-seed.png , bottom-seed.png } , { odd-seed.png , bottom-seed.png } )

And when the sun comes out, the march might be described as

$\sf{\Omega}^{\prime \prime} =$ ( { ordinary-seed.png , negative-seed.png } , { odd-seed.png , negative-seed.png } )

Overall we can make a crude representation of the movie with just a beginning, middle and ending as $\Psi = \left( \sf{\Omega}_{1}, \sf{\Omega}_{2} \ldots \sf{\Omega}^{\prime}_{\it{j}}, \sf{\Omega}^{\prime}_{\it{j} + \sf{1}} \ldots \sf{\Omega}^{\prime \prime}_{\it{f} - \sf{1}} , \sf{\Omega}^{\prime \prime}_{\it{f}} \right)$. This mathematical portrayal is getting complicated even though it conveys much less information than the storyline. So to simplify we define a new class of particles that are combinations of conjugate seeds and thermodynamic seeds. For example let

southern-quark.png $\equiv$ { ordinary-seed.png , southern-seed.png }
and
southern-anti-quark.png $\equiv$ { odd-seed.png , southern-seed.png }

Then the events of battle can be represented using half as many particles

$\sf{\Omega} =$ ( southern-quark.png , southern-anti-quark.png )
instead of
$\sf{\Omega} =$ ( { ordinary-seed.png , southern-seed.png } , { odd-seed.png , southern-seed.png } )

Reducing the number of particles by a factor of two is a big simplification, and we intend to use it a lot. So we give special names to these new particles, the enduring union of a conjugate seed and a thermodynamic seed is called a thermodynamic quark. These quarks are symbolized using lower-case Roman letters without serifs, and they are named after their thermodynamic seeds. Thus quarks are objectified from pairs of Anaxagorean sensations. Objectification changes narrative forms of description from using adjectives to identify sensations, to using nouns for identifying particles. For example, we may report detecting an up-quark instead of seeing a white sensation on the right side. Click on any icon in the table below for more detail.

Quarks are building-blocks we can use to describe more complicated sensations. If you imagine the grey conjugate seeds as the basic building-blocks for these marching scenarios, then the quarks are like painted blocks. Descriptions made using quarks hide complexity, and they are more succinct. But these compressed reports are still useful because our bodies are bilateral, so most sensations are directly experienced with strong left and right-side character. For example, we usually see with binocular vision, and hear in stereo. So dropping seeds in favor of quarks does not lose too much precision.
