A Revelation from the Structure of Graphite and Diamond

Xuefeng

 

Graphite is an allotrope of carbon, a transitional crystal among covalent crystals, mental crystals, and molecular crystals. In crystals, the same layers of carbon atoms form covalent bonds by sp2 (trigonal) hybridization. Each carbon atom connects with three others, and six of them form a regular hexagon ring on the same plane and stretch to form laminated structures. These carbon atoms in the same plane also have P orbits, which overlap with each other to form delocalized electrons that can move freely in crystal lattices and can be motivated. That is, the graphite has metallic luster which can conduct heat and electricity. Due to the large distances between the layers, and with small bonding forces, they have soft and creamy textures, are gray-black, opaque, and solid. They have a density 2.25g/cm³, a melting point 3652℃, a boiling point 4827℃, and a Moh scale hardness of one. The chemical properties are stable and corrosion resistant, and not very reactive with acid, alkali, or other chemicals. When burned in oxygen at 687℃, it will produce carbon dioxide. It can be oxidized by strong oxidizing agents such as concentrated nitric acid or mineral chameleon. It can be used as an anti-scuff agent and as a lubricant. Highly pure graphite can be used as a neutron moderator in nuclear reactors and can be used in the manufacture of crucibles, electrodes, electric brushes, dry-cell batteries, graphite fibers, heat exchangers, coolers, electric arc furnaces, arc lamps, pencil lead, and much more.

 

Diamonds are allotropes of carbon atoms which are typical covalent crystals. The carbon atoms form four sp3 hybrid orbits which connect to each other with covalent bonds. Each carbon atom is in the center of a regular tetrahedron formed by four other carbon atoms associated with it, forming a crystal, and the entire crystal can be regarded as a giant molecule. These crystals belong to cubic systems and are usually in forms with eight faces. The purest quality ones are colorless, transparent, strong, and lustrous, but impurities will make them appear blue, sky blue, light yellow, red, or black. Their density is 3.15 ~ 3.53g/cm³, their melting point is 3550℃, and their boiling point is 4827℃. With a Moh scale hardness of ten, they are the hardest of all materials. They are non-conductive and appear pale blue fluorescent under ultraviolet light. They do not react with most chemical agents, and can be burned in oxygen at 777℃ to produce carbon dioxide. Transparent carbites are known as diamonds after they have been carved and polished and are luxurious ornaments. There are few diamond minerals in nature. Diamonds can be made artificially, such as with graphite, subjected to high temperatures, high pressures and catalyzing agents.

 

What revelation can we obtain from the above data?

 

 

 

I have obtained the secrets of transforming humans into Celestial Beings and Buddhas and I am aware of how to do this with self-cultivation and self-refinery. As long as one follows my guidance strictly, they will become a Celestial Being or a Buddha and reach the high-level space of LIFE. This is assured.
