I understood the point , and I can see the historic view of not having answers to current phenomenon.
I mostly wasn't looking for a particular answer either , I suppose , or not even really , I was stating the unique limited amount of knockdown evidence for states we have , or maybe not even because I've not really read any new or much older material for that matter on it.
It wasn't aimed at anyone . Just an observation of intrigue because of the novelty of the op question . I wasn't even lol asking for an experts opinion , it was subjective lol.
"Trick is, it doesn't answer the original question. Original question assumed (even if indirectly) there exists a continuity of properties that is a reason behind change from the solid to the gas, and there is no such continuity."
I would be very much interested in reading material that proves that the continuity does not exist ....and not to have any pride issues on it , mainly only to see what research has progressed to on it , and if or a limit has been reached for what ever reason and the question abandoned altogether .
There are many questions in science that are not currently possible to begin to answer . Absence of reasons for state changes is not a particular one that sits well with me . ha it's not like I have a choice other wise if it doesn't , it's just that it seems absurd to me subjectively that it would not . It feels closer to a lack of understanding , but again, I'm not well enough versed .
I never intending on disagreements with peers on subjects I've not mastered material. The op question only forces me to imagine question s about the nature as well . Even if the answer is it doesn't have and answer . But that just is not something I have an easy time with personally . I'm more apt to think that it doesn't have an answer yet .
But I may know less , well I can admit openly , I know not much more that anything about it to even decern if it woukd have a pattern or not .
Lol I only found the question one of interest was all .
