Plato’s theory that the Earth is made up of cubes was confirmed by a new study. The research revealed that when objects are broken apart, they take the most cube shape.
Greek philosopher who lived about 2500 years ago Plato‘according to world; It consisted of five different items: earth, air, fire, water and the universe. Each platonic shape had its own unique geometry. For the world building block the shape that we can accept is the cube.
Science has changed tremendously since Plato and now all substances of atoms occur that cameWe even know that atoms have their own sub-parts (protons, neutrons, electrons) and that these parts can be collided and divided into smaller parts.
According to Plato, 5 items that make up the Earth
Well, would it be wrong if we discovered the existence of atoms? Not exactly according to a new modeling. Because according to a study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Earth’s average shape is cube.
Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Technology and Economics of Budapest and the University of Debrecen, a three-year theoretical study Then, with the model they created, they decided to determine the average shape of the Earth and therefore reveal whether Plato was right.
The model is based on an extremely simple logic; Consider a three-dimensional surface. Next divide in two. Continue to split each piece you have in two compartments. Although the results are variable, when looking at the average, the most common figure is a cube.
Of course, this modeling does not indicate that the building block of the Earth is a cube. Research is mostly the most encountered in the world or our chance to meet reveals that the shape is a cube.
