  1. (Hello everypony, this is my first blog ever anywhere so here goes nothing . ) What is this blog about: The world of Equestria is absolutely amazing, from the design of its landscape to the diversity and character of its residents. But I believe there are other beauties as well, the beauty of science in Equestria. Even though the Science in Equestria is not discussed explicitly in the episodes, there are clues hidden throughout. Moments like Celestia raising the sun or Twilight explaining flight dynamics at the Wonderbolts Academy. I believe if we put our minds together, we can formulate physical theories that are consistent throughout the series and can explain all the phenomenons (including magic). Of course, this would require us to really push the limit of what can be called Scientific. But hey, nothing is impossible in Equestria! In the upcoming entires I will try to set out some foundations or Axioms such as: Anything that is displayed in an episode/movie we can take as Facts. Hopefully, from that we can start explaining some of the more obvious phenomenons and see where we can go from there. I've read a few excellent articles both in mlpforums as well as fimfiction, where the people discuss topics such as whether Rainbow dash can break the sound barrier when she saved Rarity, and discussions on how does gravity work when Celestia raises the sun? They are rather old but the links are below: Permanent Temporary et al (2012) https://www.fimfiction.net/blog/70177/physics-from-a-non-brony-the-sonic-rainboom-unraveled-reposted-from-another-forum Phisca et al (2017) Are Celestia and Luna Rising The Sun/Moon? These are some interesting reads and shows how we can use science to answer some of the questions in Equestria (and in some cases actually do some calculations). The ultimate goal is quite ambitious, which is an attempt at an all encompassing theory, or a Standard Model of Equestria Science. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Why: I became a brony about 2 and a half years ago and what I saw amazed me. There are so many talents everywhere. There are great pony artists creating art pieces that can rival those in the Renaissance. And great animators with videos such as Lullaby for a princess and Children of the night that are just astonishing up to the point I do not believe there is better fanwork in any fandom. I am not that great of an artist (tried drawing some and though it was definitely fun, not really something I would be proud of posting ). But nonetheless I wish to contribute to the fandom as much as I can (since it helped me in my life I wish to do some contribution in return). Since I couldn't really draw or animate or sing, perhaps I can do something I am kinda-sorta good at, and that is why I thought about investigating the science in Equestria. I've had this thought for two years now and I believe the show have developed to a state where such a task is possible (with help from the community of course). And with Twilight Sparkle being one of my greatest scientific inspiration I see this being the perfect way to honor her. I discussed this with a friend of mine and he asked me why try to use science to explain something that is otherwise mysterious and beautiful and... magical. I couldn't think of a better reply than the transcript of a conversation between an artist and a scientist: "I have a friend who’s an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don’t agree with very well. He’ll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I’ll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he’s kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe, although I might not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is, I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it’s not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there’s also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts." -Ode to the flower Of course I am not a great scientist like him, but perhaps, on top of the beauty of Equestria we see in the show, we can discover more beauty hidden within it. And together making the whole of Equestria even more fascinating! The Blog itself: Although I personally studies Physics more and would be focusing on it more throughout the entries, Chemistry, Biology and any other sciences are more than welcomed in comments and discussions. Any level of discussion is welcomed but if commenting some really complicated stuff, a brief, simplified explanation accompanying it would be greatly appreciated . As a pony of science, I believe any comments will contribute constructively and that there is no such thing as "wrong". And since we are delving into unknown realms of science, any theory, which may otherwise seem crazy in the world we live in, is perfectly legitimate and worth discussing. For example: Theory: In the episode The Cutie-Remark, Starlight Glimmer didn't actually use magic to lift herself up, but instead, she pushed the entirety of Equestria slightly further away , and the glow around her is just for cosmetic effect . If Celestia and Luna can raise celestial objects why can't Starlight . Perhaps we will discover something truly interesting, something that really ties everything together. Perhaps the final theorem requires a significant contribution from an unknown source of Muffin energy. But I do know that whatever the outcome, this is gonna be an interesting and awesome experience .
