HEAT TRAVELS AT INFINITE SPEED

what did the science mean by this?

    The solution to the diffusion equation displays "infinite" speed in the sense that the farfield is affected "immediatly".

      Are you suggesting a past eternal model? How does that work? This would mean an actual infinity of events would have to have passed already which can't be the case, since new events are continually being added. You can not add to an actual infinity. An actually infinite past in a temporally constrained system is not even possible. What sort of causality model do you propose? Are there continual past events being added? In other words, is the past unfolding towards a potential infinity just as the future is unfolding towards a future infinity?

        Neither the past nor the future deterministically exist nor are the defined etc.
        Quantum mechanics basically gives insight to this, neither the future nor the past system of the evolution of particles is defined or has any sort of consistent history. Well, it depends on the interpretation, but it's mathematically sound and just as explanatory for experimental results

    Yes
    "Heat" is random noise, the conduction of heat is just molecules bumping into each other. It's like how shadow fronts can travel faster than light
    Whatever is changing the heat over time so it might vary and convey information, will have to propagate at the speed of light (it's ok if you don't understand, you don't need to feel bad)

      So heat is the speed rate of the motion of molecules.

      It is not being said that molecules move at the speed of light is it?.

    The whole “heat travels at infinite speed” is just a mathematical simplification. It actually travels at the speed of sounds but because the calculated heat of something at the wavefront of the speed of sound is almost identical to what the heat would be with instant transfer we use the simplification

      340 and infinity are pretty far apart

        Yeah but significant amounts of heat move really slowly. If I looked one second away in speed of sound in a steel rod. And then I started heating one end of the rod the temperature of the rod 1125 feet away would still be pretty cool no matter how hot I was heating it and this is true for any distance and it’s associated time.

          Well, that depends on the thickness of said Rod, and the surrounding atmosphere of the Rod.
          Now if you add a Ring to the equation...

        One might say infinitely far apart even.

        the speed of sound in solids is significantly faster than that

    Wow, it's almost as if an equation designed before the discovery of relativity is not entirely compatible with relativity or something! Next you'll be telling me that newtonian gravity can be used to send messages faster than light

    is that why cooked food is still cold inside?

    How is this so common? Like those schizos posting aerodynamics papers as proof that the earth is flat.
    Surely at some point common sense would tell you that you're being fucking stupid.
